This European Standard specifies tests methods for the determination of strength, durability and stability for all types of domestic and non-domestic storage furniture including domestic kitchen furniture. It does not apply to office, industrial, catering equipment and retail storage, nor to industrial storage lockers. Strength and durability tests do not assess the structure of the building (for example the strength of wall hanging cabinets); rather, they include only the cabinets and the parts used for attachment. The wall and the wall attachments are not included. Requirements for safety, strength and durability can be found in other European Standards. Assessment of the effects of ageing, degradation and flammability is not included. Annex A (normative) contains details of test equipment for the slam open/shut testing of extension elements.
