Belysningsstolpar - Del 7: Krav för belysningsstolpar av fiberförstärkt polymerkomposit
This part of this European Standard specifies the performance requirements for fibre reinforced polymer composite lighting columns for which the main intended use is road lighting. It includes materials and test methods. The composite materials considered are those constructed of a resin matrix reinforced by a high strength fibrous material. It applies to post top columns not exceeding 20 m height for post top lanterns and columns with brackets not exceeding 18 m height for side entry lanterns. This European Standard specifies the classes of performance related to the essential requirements of resistance to horizontal (wind) loads, and performance under vehicle impact (passive safety) in application of Essential Requirement No 4 Safety in Use measured according to the corresponding test methods included in this European Standard or available in separate European Standards. It provides for the evaluation of conformity of the product to this European Standard.
