Sanitary appliances - Specification for whirlpool baths

This document specifies requirements for whirlpool baths, having a rated voltage of not more than 250 V for single phase appliances and 480 V for other appliances, which are intended to be installed in indoor domestic situations and used in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions for personal hygiene. Such whirlpool baths are tested and supplied as a complete independent unit designed to be drained down after every use. They may be transported in several separate parts, for assembly on site, to facilitate delivery.
Safety aspects of Whirlpool baths (except use by young children and slow moving/weak elderly or disabled individuals) are covered by EN 60335 2 60.
Exclusions: this standard does not cover additional requirements for whirlpool baths intended for uses where specific medical provisions are required, or whirlpool baths for communal uses where they are not drained down after every use. Portable whirlpool devices are not covered by this standard.
For the purposes of this standard the term ‘domestic situations’ includes use in hotels, accommodation for students, hospitals and similar buildings.
Warning: Slow moving elderly or disabled persons should take care when using whirlpool baths. Young children should not be allowed to use whirlpool baths without supervision.
NOTE 1   It is unrealistic to expect manufacturers to provide a definition of what constitutes a ‘slow moving elderly or disabled person’, or ‘young children’. The former is the responsibility of the individual or a carer. The latter is a parental responsibility.
NOTE 2   When EN 60335–2-60 is amended to cover use of whirlpool baths by slow moving elderly or disabled persons and young children the warning given above will be deleted from this standard.

Sanitärausstattungsgegenstände - Anforderungen an Whirlwannen

Diese Europäische Norm legt Anforderungen an Whirlwannen, die eine Betriebsspannung von nicht mehr als 250 V für einphasige Geräte und 480 V für andere Geräte besitzen, fest. Sie sind für eine Innenraum Installation für den häuslichen Gebrauch vorgesehen und werden zur persönlichen Hygiene entsprechend den Herstelleranweisungen eingesetzt. Whirlwannen dieser Art werden als vollständig ausgerüstete Einheit geprüft und in einer Ausführung ausgeliefert, die nach jedem Gebrauch entleert wird. Sie können in mehreren Einzelteilen zur Montage vor Ort transportiert werden, um die Auslieferung zu erleichtern.
Sicherheitsanforderungen an Whirlwannen (außerhalb der Nutzung durch Kleinkinder und in ihrer Bewegung eingeschränkter und Personen höheren Alters sowie Behinderter) sind in EN 60335 2 60 angegeben.
Ausnahmen: Zusätzliche Anforderungen an Whirlwannen für den medizinischen Einsatz, wo besondere Bestimmungen gelten, oder für die öffentliche Nutzung, bei der die Whirlwannen nicht nach jedem Gebrauch entleert werden, sind von dieser Norm nicht abgedeckt. Bewegliche Whirleinrichtungen sind nicht Gegenstand dieser Norm.
Für die Belange dieser Norm beinhaltet der Begriff "häuslicher Gebrauch" auch die Nutzung in Hotels, Studenteneinrichtungen, Krankenhäusern und ähnlichen Gebäuden.
WARNUNG - In ihrer Bewegung eingeschränkte ältere und behinderte Personen sollten bei der Nutzung von Whirlwannen besondere Sorgfalt walten lassen. Kleinkindern sollte die Nutzung von Whirlwannen ohne Beaufsichtigung nicht erlaubt sein.
ANMERKUNG 1   Es ist nicht sachgerecht zu erwarten, dass Hersteller eine Definition bereitstellen, was mit einer "in ihrer Bewegung eingeschränkten älteren oder behinderten Person" und "Kleinkinder" gemeint ist. Ersteres liegt in der Verantwortung der entsprechenden Person oder eines Betreuers. Letzteres liegt in der elterlichen Verantwortung.
ANMERKUNG 2   Wenn EN 60335 2 60 mit der Nutzung von Whirlwannen durch in ihrer Bewegung eingeschränkte ältere oder behinderte Personen sowie Kleinkinder ergänzt wird, wird der oben aufgeführte Warnhinweis aus dieser Norm gestrichen.

Appareils sanitaires - Spécification relative aux baignoires avec système de brassage d'eau

Cette norme européenne détermine les exigences pour les baignoires avec système de brassage d’eau, dont la tension nominale d’alimentation ne dépasse pas les 250 V pour les appareils monophasés et à 480 V pour les autres appareils. Elles sont destinées à être installées à l’intérieur des bâtiments pour des usages domestiques et pour l’hygiène personnelle conformément aux instructions du fabricant. Ces baignoires avec système de brassage d’eau sont soumises à essai et fournies en tant qu’appareil complet et indépendant, devant être vidé après chaque utilisation. Elles peuvent être transportées en plusieurs parties pour faciliter la livraison, et être assemblées sur place.
Les aspects de sécurité des baignoires avec système de brassage d’eau (sauf en ce qui concerne l’utilisation par les jeunes enfants, les personnes âgées faibles ou à mobilité réduite et les personnes handicapées) sont couverts par l’EN 60335-2-60.
Exclusions : la présente norme ne couvre pas les exigences supplémentaires pour les baignoires avec système de brassage d’eau destinées à une utilisation exigeant des dispositions médicales spécifiques, ou à une utilisation commune lorsque les baignoires ne sont pas vidées après chaque utilisation. Les systèmes de brassage amovibles ne sont pas couverts par la présente norme.
Pour les besoins de la présente norme, le terme «usage domestique» inclut l’utilisation dans les hôtels, les logements d’étudiants, les hôpitaux et les bâtiments similaires.
AVERTISSEMENT - Il convient que les personnes âgées à mobilité réduite ou les personnes handicapées soient prudentes lors de l’utilisation de baignoires avec système de brassage d’eau. Il convient de ne pas autoriser les jeunes enfants à utiliser les baignoires avec système de brassage d’eau sans surveillance.
NOTE 1   Il n’est pas réaliste d’attendre des fabricants qu’ils donnent une définition de ce que recouvrent les notions de «personne âgée à mobilité réduite ou personne handicapée» ou «jeune enfant». La première définition est de la responsabilité de la personne elle-même ou de celle qui s’en occupe. La deuxième est de la responsabilité des parents.
NOTE 2   Si l’EN 60335-2-60 est amendée pour couvrir l’utilisation des baignoires avec système de brassage d’eau par des personnes âgées à mobilité réduite ou des personnes handicapées ou des jeunes enfants, il faudra supprimer l’avertissement ci-dessus.

Sanitarna oprema - Zahteve za masažne kadi

Ta dokument določa zahteve za masažne kadi z nazivno napetostjo največ 250 V za enofazno opremo in 480 V za drugo opremo, ki je namenjena vgradnji v notranjih prostorih za domačo uporabo ter se uporablja v skladu z navodili proizvajalca za osebno higieno. Take masažne kadi so preskušene in dobavljene kot zaključena neodvisna enota, ki jo je treba izprazniti po vsaki uporabi. Lahko se prevažajo v več ločenih delih in sestavijo na kraju samem, da se olajša dobava.
Varnostni vidiki masažnih kadi (razen če kad uporabljajo mladi otroci in počasne/šibke starejše ali invalidne osebe) so obravnavani v standardu EN 60335-2-60.
Izključitve: ta standard ne obravnava dodatnih zahtev za masažne kadi, namenjene uporabam, za katere so potrebna posebna medicinska določila, ali masažne kadi za javno uporabo, ki se ne izpraznijo po vsaki uporabi. Ta standard ne zajema prenosnih masažnih naprav.
Za namene tega standarda izraz »domača uporaba« vključuje uporabo v hotelih, namestitvah za učence, bolnišnicah in podobnih stavbah.
Opozorilo: Počasne starejše ali invalidne osebe bi morale biti previdne pri uporabi masažnih kadi. Mladi otroci ne bi smeli nenadzorovano uporabljati masažnih kadi.
OPOMBA 1: Nerealno je pričakovati, da bodo proizvajalci opredelili, kaj zajema pojem »počasna starejša ali invalidna oseba« ali »mladi otroci«. Za osebe iz prvega pojma so odgovorne posamezne osebe ali skrbniki, za osebe iz drugega pojma pa starši.
OPOMBA 2: Ko bo standard EN 60335-2-60 dopolnjen, da bo zajemal uporabo masažnih kadi s strani počasnih starejših ali invalidnih oseb ali mladih otrok, bo zgornje opozorilo izbrisano iz tega standarda.

EN 12764:2015 (E) 5 1 Scope This European Standard specifies requirements for whirlpool baths, having a rated voltage of not more than 250 V for single phase appliances and 480 V for other appliances, which are intended to be installed in indoor domestic situations and used in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions for personal hygiene. Such whirlpool baths are tested and supplied as a complete independent unit designed to be drained down after every use. They may be transported in several separate parts, for assembly on site, to facilitate delivery. Safety aspects of Whirlpool baths (except use by young children and slow moving/weak elderly or disabled individuals) are covered by EN 60335-2-60. Exclusions: this standard does not cover additional requirements for whirlpool baths intended for uses where specific medical provisions are required, or whirlpool baths for communal uses where they are not drained down after every use. Portable whirlpool devices are not covered by this standard. For the purposes of this standard the term ‘domestic situations’ includes use in hotels, accommodation for students, hospitals and similar buildings. Warning: Slow moving elderly or disabled persons should take care when using whirlpool baths. Young children should not be allowed to use whirlpool baths without supervision. NOTE 1 It is unrealistic to expect manufacturers to provide a definition of what constitutes a ‘slow moving elderly or disabled person’, or ‘young children’. The former is the responsibility of the individual or a carer. The latter is a parental responsibility. NOTE 2 When EN 60335–2-60 is amended to cover use of whirlpool baths by slow moving elderly or disabled persons and young children the warning given above will be deleted from this standard. 2 Normative references The following documents, in whole or in part, are normatively referenced in this document and are indispensable for its application.

A separate prominent label shall include a warning advising “Do not lift the bath by any part of the pipe-work. 8 Assessment and verification of constancy of performance - AVCP 8.1 General The compliance of a whirlpool bath with the requirements of this standard and with the performances declared by the manufacturer in the Declaration of Performance (DoP) shall be demonstrated by: — determination of the product type (see 8.2); — factory production control by the manufacturer (FPC), including product assessment (see 8.3). The manufacturer shall always retain the overall control and shall have the necessary means to take responsibility for the conformity of the product with its declared performance(s). 8.2 Type testing 8.2.1 General All performances related to characteristics included in this standard shall be determined when the manufacturer intends to declare the respective performances unless the standard gives provisions for declaring them without performing tests. (e.g. use of previously existing data, CWFT and conventionally accepted performance). Assessment previously performed in accordance with the provisions of this standard, may be taken into account provided that they were made to the same or a more rigorous test method, under the same AVCP SIST EN 12764:2015

EN 12764:2015 (E) 11 system on the same product or products of similar design, construction and functionality, such that the results are applicable to the product in question. For the purposes of assessment, the manufacturer's products may be grouped into families, where it is considered that the results for one or more characteristics from any one product within the family are representative for that same characteristics for all products within that same family Products may be grouped in different families for different characteristics. Reference to the assessment method standards should be made to allow the selection of a suitable representative sample. In addition, the determination of the product type shall be performed for all characteristics included in the standard for which the manufacturer declares the performance: — at the beginning of the production of a new or modified whirlpool bath (unless a member of the same product range), or — at the beginning of a new or modified method of production (where this may affect the stated properties); or — they shall be repeated for the appropriate characteristic(s), whenever a change occurs in the whirlpool bath design, in the raw material or in the supplier of the components, or in the method of production (subject to the definition of a family), which would affect significantly one or more of the characteristics. Where components are used whose characteristics have already been determined, by the component manufacturer, on the basis of assessment methods of other product standards, these characteristics need not be re-assessed. The specifications of these components shall be documented. Products bearing regulatory marking in accordance with appropriate harmonized European specifications may be presumed to have the performances declared in the DoP, although this does not replace the responsibility of the whirlpool bath manufacturer to ensure that the whirlpool bath as a whole is correctly manufactured and its component products have the declared performance values. 8.2.2 Samples, testing and compliance criteria The whirlpool bath shall be subjected to and pass the relevant tests in Table 2.
