This European Standard specifies dimensional and cross-sectional tolerances for cold rolled steel sections produced on roll-forming machines.
It applies to cold-rolled sections for general use (standard sections) produced from steels conforming to BS EN 10025, BS EN 10142 and BS EN 10147 and in the form of rectangular L, U, C, Z and Omega cross sections as well as split tubes.
This standard also applies to cold rolled sections for special applications (special sections) produced from steels with other radii, tolerances and shapes.
Examples of special sections are sections for steel-framed buildings, doorframes and sections for rolling stock, automobiles and bridge engineering.
This standard does not apply to drawn, pressed or folded cold formed sections, cold rolled steel piling or sections manufactured on the basis of special standards.
