This document specifies the requirements and test methods for temporary edge protection systems for use during construction or maintenance of buildings and other structures.
This document applies to edge protection systems for flat and inclined surfaces and specifies the requirements for three classes of temporary edge protection.
For edge protection systems with an arrest function (e.g. falling or sliding down a sloping roof) this standard specifies requirements for energy absorption.
This standard includes edge protection systems, some of which are fixed to the structure and others, which rely on gravity and friction on flat surfaces.
This standard does not provide requirements for edge protection systems intended for:
- protection against impact from vehicles or from other mobile equipment,
- protection from sliding down of bulk loose materials, snow etc,
- protection of areas accessible to the public.
This standard does not apply to side protection on scaffolds according to EN 12811-1 and EN 1004.
NOTE This does not prevent these systems to be used on temporary structures.

This European Standard specifies performance requirements and design methods for temporary roofs and encapsulations.
It is possible to form the constructions in several ways:
-   roof which is supported by an existing permanent construction (Figure 1);
-   roof which is supported by a scaffold (Figure 2 and 3);
-   roof which is supported by another temporary construction (e.g. steel frame);
-   wall which is supported by a separate construction (Figure 4);
-   encapsulation which is a complete temporary construction including roof, walls and corresponding temporary supports (Figure 5).
This European Standard sets out general requirements. These are substantially independent of the materials of which the construction is made. This standard is intended to be used as the basis for enquiry and design.

The façade scaffolds are intended for use while connected to the façade with ties. Scaffold systems are classified by six criteria, see Table 1
It is limited to façade scaffold systems that have standards made of steel or aluminium alloy and have other elements made of these materials or timber based materials.
It defines a standard set of system configurations under which the structural design is carried out. Other configurations may be possible with some systems, but they are outside the scope.
This standard should be read in conjunction with prEN 12811-1, prEN 12811-2, EN 12811-3 and prEN 12810-2 which specify certain of the requirements.

This European Standard specifies performance requirements and methods of structural and general design for access and working scaffolds, referred to from hereon as working scaffolds. Requirements given are for scaffold structures, which rely on the adjacent structures for stability. In general these requirements also apply to other types of working scaffolds. Normal requirements are set down, but there is also provision for special cases.
This European Standard also specifies structural design rules when certain materials are used and general rules for prefabricated equipment.
The standard excludes:
- platforms suspended by ropes, whether fixed or movable;
- horizontally movable platforms including Mobile Access Towers (MAT);
- power-operated platforms;
- scaffolds used as protection for roof work;
- temporary roofs.
NOTE 1    Most working scaffolds are formed from prefabricated components or from tubes and couplers. Some examples of working scaffolds are façade scaffolds, static towers and birdcage scaffolds, but details are not given for all of these.
NOTE 2   Although they may be erected using the same structural elements working scaffolds are not falsework and shoring.
NOTE 3   Particular requirements for façade scaffolds made of prefabricated components are specified in prEN 12810 -1 and prEN 12810-2.
