This European Standard specifies materials, properties, requirements and test methods for unreinforced cement bound concrete paving blocks and complementary fittings. It is applicable to precast concrete paving blocks and complementary fittings for pedestrian use, vehicular use and roof coverings, e.g. footpaths, precincts, cycle tracks, car parks, roads, highways, industrial areas (including docks and harbours), aircraft pavements, bus stations, petrol filling stations.
This standard does not deal with the tactility or visibility of blocks
Blocks with side features to provide wider joints for permeable pavements are included.
Permable blocks with large holes or voids or with an interconnected pore structure to allow water to pass through the block to provide a porous pavement are not included.
In case of regular use of studded tyres additional requirements are sometimes needed.
This standard provides for the product marking and the evaluation of conformity of the product to this European Standard.
