CEN/TC 229 Precast concrete products

European Norm


This European Standard specifies criteria and material-specific requirements of precast concrete noise barriers and acoustic elements to be used in the construction and rehabilitation of new and existing traffic roads.
Furthermore, this European Standard describes test methods and defines quality control, type and scope of factory production control and certification of conformity, which can also be used for other Transport systems. In this case additional requirements could be necessary.
This European Standard does not apply to load bearing components, such as posts or other supporting members, whose principal function is to support noise barriers and acoustic elements. It also does not apply to the acoustic properties of noise barriers and acoustic elements.
