This European Standard specifies the performance requirements which shutters shall fulfil when fitted to a building. It deals also with the significant hazards for construction, transport, installation, operation and maintenance of the shutters (see list of significant machine hazards in annex C).
It applies to all shutters as well as similar products whatever their use and nature of the materials used, as follows:
- external Venetian blind, roller shutter, wing shutter, Venetian shutter, flat-closing concertina shutter, concertina shutter or sliding panel shutter, with or without a system of projection.
These products can be operated manually with or without compensating spring, or by means of electric motors (power operated products).
This document is not applicable to shutters which are manufactured before the date of application of this document by CEN.
Noise aspects are not treated in the standard because this is not considered a safety issue.
