Standard NBN EN 12871:2001
Wood-based panels - Performance specifications and requirements for load bearing boards for use in floors, walls and roofs
79.060.01 Wood-based panels in general
This European Standard sets out the performance specifications and requirements for load bearing wood-based panels used as structural decking and sheathing in floors, roofs and walls, and provides a method of demonstrating compliance based on prototype testing. Reference is also made to general performance requirements for loads not defined in ENV 1991-1, ENV 1991-2-1 or ENV 1995-1-1. Uniformly distributed loads in accordance with ENV 1991-2-1 are not included in this standard; but can be verified by calculation according to ENV 1995-1-1, see clause 6. The concept of punching shear is included within this standard. This European Standard also specifies requirements for additional properties for load bearing wood-based panels used as structural decking and sheathing in floors, roofs and walls, which are not given in other European Standards.
