Plastics piping systems - Thermoplastics shafts or risers for inspection chambers and manholes - Determination of resistance against surface and traffic loading
This European Standard specifies a method of testing the resistance of the upper assembly of inspection chambers and manhole components against surface and traffic loading.
It does not include requirements for testing the cover and frame. These requirements are specified in EN 124 or other standards depending on the material.
NOTE 1 Upper assembly components would normally include riser shafts, tapers, reducing slabs and telescopic joints.
NOTE 2 This test method is intended to support prEN 13598-2 and prEN 15229 (see bibliography)
