WC pans and WC suites with integral trap

Status : Current   Published : October 2018



What is this standard about?

This European Standard specifies constructional and performance characteristics together with test methods for close-coupled suites, one-piece and independent WC pans with integral trap used for personal hygiene manufactured from glazed ceramics or stainless steel.

This European Standard does not apply to squatting toilets, WC pans without integral trap or flushing cisterns as separate appliances.

In the case of independent WC pans, the associated flushing cisterns and pressure valves are covered by other standards and the reference to cisterns in this standard is related only to the definition and requirements of flushing volume.

In the case of close-coupled suites and one-piece WCs, this standard also specifies design, performance characteristics and the test methods for designated flushing cisterns with flushing mechanisms, inlet valves and overflows. For these products, this standard covers flushing cisterns designed to be connected to drinking water installations inside buildings.

Before installation of WCs, EN 12056-2 and national requirements need to be taken into consideration.
