Revised European curtain wall product standard BS EN 13830:2015

Although this Standard has been published by BSI, it has not been approved by all the relevant European committees and therefore is not currently valid for CE marking.

The delay has in part been caused by a lack of resources within CEN (the European Committee for Standardisation), and in part due to the introduction of a number of new classes and thresholds for certain performance characteristics (such as allowable deflections of framing members under imposed wind loads).

The Chairman of the working group responsible for the standard has writen to the Commission in order to justify the changes that have been made. It is not known at present how long this process will take, and what the outcome will be.

Until the revised standard is cited in the Official Journal of the European Union, CE marking should be carried out in accordance with BS EN 13830:2003.
