I.S. EN 13369 Common rules for precast concrete products
This standard is intended to outline the general common requirements applicable to a large variety of precast products manufactured in a specialist factory environment. It also acts as a reference standard for other standards for specific products.
I.S. EN 13369 specifies the requirements, basic performance criteria and evaluation of conformity for unreinforced, reinforced and prestressed precast concrete products. These products are produced from light-, normal- and heavyweight concrete in accordance with EN 206, with no appreciable amount of entrapped air, other than entrained air. This standard also covers concrete containing fibres, other than for mechanical properties.
This standard may also be used to specify product for which no standard exists. However, if a specific product standard exists, it takes precedence over this standard.
I.S. EN 13369 refers to the relevant specifications of associated standards : EN 206 for concrete ; EN 1992 for the design of concrete structures. The installation of some precast concrete products is dealt with by EN 13670.
As I.S. EN 13369 is not a harmonised standard it may not be used on its own for the purpose of CE marking of precast concrete products.
