BS EN 60335-2-96:2002+A2:2009 Household and similar electrical appliances. Safety. Particular requirements for flexible sheet heating elements for room heating

BS EN 60335-2-96 deals with the safety of flexible sheet heating elements intended to be incorporated into the building to heat the room in which they are located, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V for single-phase installations and 480 V for other installations.

Flexible sheet heating elements are converted into heating units that are incorporated in the building in accordance with the instructions after which the required level of protection against hazards is achieved.

BS EN 60335-2-96 does not apply to:

  • Heating units intended exclusively for industrial purposes;
  • Heating units intended to be used in locations where special conditions prevail, such as the presence of a corrosive or explosive atmosphere (dust, vapour or gas);
  • Blankets, pads and similar flexible heating appliances (IEC 60335-2-17);
  • Heated mats and foot warmers (IEC 60335-2-81);
  • Heating appliances intended to be used under a carpet;
  • Flexible heating elements incorporated in other appliances.
