BS EN 15939:2019 pdf download.Hardware for furniture – Strength and loading capacity of wall attachment devices
1 Scope
This document specifies test methods for the verification of the loading capacity of all types of wall attachment devices for storage furniture and their components. It does not apply to devices intended to prevent the overturning of storage furniture. The tests consist of the application of loads and forces simulating normal functional use, as well as misuse that might reasonably be expected to occur. With the exception of the corrosion test in 6.3, the tests are designed to evaluate properties without regard to materials, design/ construction or manufacturing processes. The tests can be applied to the part attached to the furniture alone or to the combination of the part attached to the furniture and the part attached to the wall. The attachment into the wall is not included. The strength tests are carried out in a test frame with specified properties. The test results are only valid for the devices tested. These results can be used to represent the performance of production model, provided that the tested model is representative of the production model. With the exception of the corrosion test, ageing and influences of temperature and humidity are not included. Annex A (normative) includes requirements for product information. Annex B (informative) includes a method for the determination of loading capacity. Annex C (informative) includes an approximate calculation of vertical and horizontal forces.
