Regulations and standards

There are very few standards that apply to our products - but the two listed here are the most relevant.  Contact our technical engineers if you have any specific questions about our products' suitability for use and regulatory compliance.

 

tr34

This is the guidance design document for concrete floors.  Produced by the Concrete Society, its content has been developed by an industry-wide technical committee.  

Although a guidance document rather than a defined standard, it is widely recognised and adhered to throughout the world, not only the UK.  

It draws on the principles of BS 8110, the code of practice for structural use of concrete, and Eurocode 2 (design of concrete structures).

TR34 includes guidance on best practice for slab design.  It also covers load transfer, and describes how to calculate load transfer capacity.

BS8204-2: 2003 

This British Standard relates to the abrasion resistance of the concrete floor's surface - so has an influence on the use and performance of our dry-shakes.

It offers a test method for calculating abrasion and gives recommendations for constituent materials, design, work on site, inspection and testing of in situ concrete direct finished base slabs.

It applies to both ground-supported floors and suspended floors.

the construction products regulation and CE marking

The Construction Products Regulation (EU Regulation No. 305/2011) – abbreviated to CPR – was enacted on 9th March 2011 and came into force on 1st July 2013.  All construction products manufactured from this date for sale in the European Economic Area must conform to the CPR.  They must be CE marked if a relevant Harmonised European Standard or European Technical Approval exists.

All our products comply with the Construction Products Regulation and hold appropriate CE marking. Some of our products carry the CE mark, and some do not need to.

Follow this link to the European Commission website to find out more.

A 'question and answer' document about Permaban's conformance to the CPR can be downloaded from the box on the right, together with sample certification documents similar to those which will be issued with orders.
