This European Standard is applicable to precast gully tops and manhole tops made of steel reinforced concrete with a clear opening up to and including 1 000 mm for covering gullies, manholes and inspection chambers for installation within areas subjected to pedestrian and/or vehicular traffic.
It is applicable to manhole tops and gully tops for use in
— areas which can only be used by pedestrians and pedal cyclists (at least class A 15),
— pedestrian areas and comparable areas, car parks or car parking decks (at least class B 125),
— the area of kerbside channels of roads which, when measured from the kerb edge, extends a maximum of 0,5 m into the carriageway and a maximum of 0,2 m into the pedestrian area (at least class C 250),
— carriageways of roads (including pedestrian streets), hard shoulders and parking areas, for all types of
road vehicles (at least class D 400),
— areas imposing high wheel loads, e.g. docks, aircraft pavements (at least class E 600),
— areas imposing particularly high wheel loads, e.g. aircraft pavements (Group 6, class F 900).
This European Standard is not applicable in isolation but only in combination with EN 124-1 and gives
guidance for combinations of covers/gratings made of steel reinforced concrete with frames according to EN 124-2, EN 124-3, EN 124-5 and EN 124-6.
This European Standard is not applicable to:
— concave gratings for class D 400 installed in carriageways of roads or hard shoulders and concave gratings for classes F 900 and E 600;
— gratings/covers as part of prefabricated drainage channels according to EN 1433;
— floor and roof gullies in buildings which are specified in EN 1253 (all parts); and
