Fire-fighting hoses - Test methods
This European standard specifies test methods for lay-flat fire-fighting hoses for fixed systems, semi-rigid fire-fighting hoses for both fixed systems and vehicles and fire-fighting suction hoses for vehicles.
These test methods are required for the standards for fire-fighting hose product standards developed by CEN/TC 192. Consequently, the applicable test methods are selected and the requirements and test values defined in the relevant fire-fighting hose product standards and normatively referenced in those standards.
This European Standard does not cover test methods for lay-flat fire-fighting hoses for vehicles for which no European standard exists.
NOTE Annex R (informative) lists the existing published ISO and EN hose test methods standards that are specified within fire-fighting hose standards.
