BS EN 1886:2007 Ventilation for buildings. Air handling units. Mechanical performance

BS EN 1886:2007 specifies test methods, test requirements and classifications for air handling units. It specifically covers those which supply and/or extract air via a ductwork, ventilating/conditioning a part or the whole of the building.

BS EN 1886:2007 is not applicable to the following:

a) air conditioning units serving a limited area in a building, such as fan coil units;
b) units for residential buildings;
c) units producing ventilation air mainly for a manufacturing process.

Except for the thermal and acoustic performance of the casing, the test methods and requirements are applicable to both complete units and any separate sections.
