The European standards relating to tables are basically of two types: those that describe the test methods and those that define the requirements. While the standard of methods is unique (the EN 1730), the standard that defines the requirements varies according to the intended use of the product, for example:
Tables for domestic use: the requirements standard is the EN 12521
Tables for non-domestic use: the requirements standard is the EN 15372
Tables for outdoor use: the requirements standard is the EN 581
Office tables: the requirements standard is the EN 527.
The above standards provide for different loads, cycles and stresses which can be more or less intense by the application of the same test method.
The question most frequently asked by our customers is to compare the stresses the table is subjected to using one requirement rather than another.
We therefore decided to draw up a summary table where you can easily check the values of the stresses foreseen by the various tests. The summery table is available and ready for your use at the following link:Tests on the tables: comparison of requirements.
