This part of EN 508 specifies requirements for self-supporting external profiled sheets for roof covering, wall cladding, lining and liner tray products for discontinuous laying made from aluminium sheet with or without surface treatment (additional organic coatings or anodising).
This document establishes general characteristics, definitions, classifications and labelling for the products, together with requirements for the materials from which the products can be manufactured. It is intended to be used either by manufacturers to ensure that their products comply with the requirements or by purchasers to verify that the products comply before they are made available on the market before being despatched from the factory. It specifies the requirements for products which enable them to meet all normal service conditions.
This document applies to all discontinuously laid self-supporting external profiled sheets for roof covering, wall cladding, lining and liner trays with the exception of tiles with a surface area less than 1 m2 and produced by stamping. These profiled roof sheets are designed to keep wind, rain and snow out of the building, and to transfer any resultant loads and infrequent maintenance loads to the structure.
This document does not cover products for structural purposes, i.e. it does cover products used in structural class III (according to EN 1999-1-4), it does not cover products used in constructions of Structural Classes I and II (according to EN 1999-1-4) intended to contribute to the global or partial stability of the building structure by providing racking resistance or resistance of permanent static loads (excluding self-weight of the metal sheet).
No requirements for supporting construction, design of roof system and execution of connections and flashings are included.

This document establishes requirements for factory-made structural double skin metal faced insulating panels, intended for installation as elements with interlocking or overlapping longitudinal joints in the following applications:
a)   roofs (also for refurbishment);
b)   external walls and wall cladding (e.g. on brick walls for refurbishment or sandwich panels on liner trays);
c)   walls (including partitions) and ceilings within the building envelope.
It is essential that structural double skin metal faced insulating sandwich panels according to this document (FprEN 14509-2) fulfil the requirements of EN 14509.
This document (FprEN 14509-2) gives the basic rule for use of structural sandwich panels for structural applications including fixing of panels. The clarification of which application is structural needs to be given by national provisions. The stabilization parameters needed to contribute to stabilization of individual structural elements (supporting structure) as defined as structural class II according to EN 1993-1-3 are included.
The insulating core materials covered by this document are rigid polyurethane, expanded polystyrene, extruded polystyrene foam, phenolic foam, cellular glass and mineral wool. For the stabilization purposes only, the following insulation core materials are covered rigid polyurethane, mineral wool, extruded polystyrene foam and expanded polystyrene foam.
NOTE   Polyurethane (PUR) includes polyisocyanurate (PIR).
Due to durability performance reasons, only coated face material of steel faces is used (both organic and metallic coating). Uncoated steel is not used as steel face material. Uncoated stainless steel, aluminium and copper can be used in visible faces of sandwich panels.
Panels with edge details that utilize different materials from the main insulating core are included in this document if there is no influence on mechanical performance of the panel.
Panels used in cold store applications are included in this document. Panels, put on the market as a component of a cold storage room, building and/or building envelope kit are excluded.
This document does not cover the following:
-   sandwich panels with a declared thermal conductivity for the insulating core greater than defined in the relevant harmonized European Standards for insulation materials;
-   products consisting of two or more clearly defined layers of different insulating core materials (multi-layered);
-   curved panels;
-   perforated panels;
-   fixings under permanent tension load for ceilings;
-   special type of fastening such as ‘T’ support for ceiling, threaded rods with clamps for wall, omega and clamps for wall and ceiling, injected joint with flashing and threaded rods for wall and ceiling;
-   fasteners.

This European Standard specifies test methods needed for determination of characteristics for fixing of
factory-made double skin metal faced insulating sandwich panels (hereafter sandwich panels) to substructure and for stabilization of substructure. The sandwich panels are for use in elements for both self-supporting and structural applications in roofs, in external and internal walls (including partitions) and in ceilings in buildings as well as those in cold store applications.
NOTE The description of self-supporting sandwich panels is given in prEN 14509-1 and for structural
sandwich panels in FprEN 14509-2.

This document specifies a test method to establish the uplift resistance of installed clay or concrete tiles for roofing, complying with the relevant product standard, EN 490 or EN 1304, which are unfixed or mechanically fixed to the substructure.
NOTE   The test method has been developed for clay or concrete tiles for roofing, but can apply to other discontinuously laid small elements, such as: slates; fibre cement slates; stones; and, adopted accordingly, to photovoltaic and solar thermal panels.
The test method is applicable to mechanical fixings such as clips, hooks, screws and nails.
The method is not applicable to fixed tiles having fixing patterns with less than every third tile fixed.
The test method is not applicable to under and over tiles. Examples of these tiles are given in Annex G.

This European Standard specifies the technical requirements and establishes methods of inspection and test as well as acceptance conditions for fibre-cement flat sheets, siding shingles and planks (referred to as sheets later in this document) for one or more of the following uses:
-   internal wall and ceiling finishes;
-   external wall and ceiling finishes.
Products covered by this European Standard can be used for other purposes provided they comply with the relevant application standard, e.g. rigid underlays.
This European Standard covers sheets reinforced with fibres of different types as specified in 5.1.1.
This European Standard does not cover sheets for fire protection purposes.
This European Standard does not include calculations with regard to works, design requirements, installation techniques, wind uplift or rain proofing of the installed sheets.

This document specifies characteristics for individual plastic rooflights. These rooflights have translucent parts made of plastic materials (e.g. GF-UP, PC, PMMA, PVC) which serve the primary purpose of introducing daylight.
This document applies to individual plastic rooflights with upstands made of e.g. GF-UP, PVC, steel, aluminium or wood and to individual plastic rooflights without upstand, intended for use on upstands. These individual plastic rooflights are intended for installation in flat and slightly inclined roofs.
This document applies to individual plastic rooflights with a rectangular or circular ground plan (see Figures 1 and 2), with an opening span (width) or diameter not larger than 2,5 m and an opening length not larger than 3,0 m. This document does not cover rooflights which contribute to the load-bearing or stiffness of the roof itself.
This document applies to individual plastic rooflights without upstand, where a single manufacturer provides all components of the rooflight and individual plastic rooflights with upstand, where a single manufacturer provides all components of the rooflight with upstand, which are bought in a single purchase.
This document applies to rooflights with one or several translucent parts.
Individual plastic rooflights can be opened by means of opening devices in one or more parts for ventilation.
The possible additional functions of day to day ventilation, smoke and heat ventilation e.g. in case of fire in accordance with EN 12101 2 and roof access, are outside the scope of this document.
This document does not apply to:
—   “Individual glass rooflights” acc. to prEN 1873 2
—   “Continuous plastic rooflights” according to prEN 14963 1 and “Continuous glass rooflights” according to prEN 14963-2
