BS EN 494:2012+A1:2015 - Fibre-cement profiled sheets and fittings. Product specification and test methods

BS EN 494:2012+A1:2015

Fibre-cement profiled sheets and fittings. Product specification and test methods

Status : Current, Project Underway   Published : November 2012



This European Standard specifies the technical requirements and establishes methods of control and test as well as acceptance conditions for fibre-cement profiled sheets and their fibre-cement fittings for one or more of the following uses:

  • roofing;

  • internal wall finishes;

  • external wall and ceiling finishes.

For the purpose of this European Standard, fibre-cement profiled sheets are classified according to their height of corrugation and their mechanical characteristics.

This European Standard covers fibre-cement profiled sheets reinforced with fibres of different type as specified in 5.1.1, with and without factory applied coating.

This European Standard does not include calculations with regard to works, design requirements, installation techniques, wind uplift or rain proofing of the installed sheets.


Some of these requirements can be applied, after agreement, to curved sheets for specific applications.
