BS EN 60335-2-43:2003+A2:2008 Household and similar electrical appliances. Safety. Particular requirements for clothes dryers and towel rails

BS EN 60335-2-43 deals with the safety of electric clothes dryers for drying textiles on racks located in a warm airflow and to electric towel rails, for household and similar purposes, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V. It covers clothes racks that are fixed or free-standing in a cabinet. The air circulation may be natural or forced.

Appliances not intended for normal household use but that nevertheless may be a source of danger to the public, such as appliances intended to be used by laymen in shops, in light industry and on farms, are within the scope of BS EN 60335-2-43.

This standard also deals with the common hazards presented by appliances that are encountered by all persons in and around the home. However, in general, it does not take into account:

  • Persons (including children) whose physical, sensory or mental capabilities lack of experience and knowledge prevents them from using the appliance safely without supervision or instruction
  • Children playing with the appliance.

BS EN 60335-2-43 does not apply to:

  • Tumble dryers (IEC 60335-2-11)
  • Appliances intended exclusively for industrial purposes
  • Appliances intended to be used in locations where special conditions prevail, such as the presence of a corrosive or explosive atmosphere (dust, vapour or gas).
