EN 131-7

UNI EN 131-7:
NORMA EUROPEA PER
SCALE MOVIBILI CON PIATTAFORMA.

30kg

TESTO ESTRATTO DAL DOCUMENTO UFFICIALE UNI DELLA NORMA EUROPEA EDIZIONE LUGLIO 2013.

La norma definisce i termini e specifica le caratteristiche generali di progettazione delle scale movibili con piattaforma. Si applica alle scale movibili con una piattaforma di lavoro, con un’area massima di 1 m2 e un’altezza massima di 5 m, utilizzabili da parte di una persona alla volta. Il carico massimo è di 150kg che comprende un carico massimo combinato: utilizzatore, utensili, attrezzature e materiali.

LA PROVA PIÙ IMPORTANTE:
Il test al ribaltamento viene eseguito con l’applicazione di 30 kg circa per spinta laterale.
La prova viene effettuata per ogni lato.

ALTRI TEST E PROVE DIMENSIONALI RENDONO LE SCALE A NORMA EN 131-7 VERAMENTE UNICHE PER UNA SICUREZZA A 360°.

La normativa si aggiorna dal 1° NOVEMBRE 2019 ed introduce l’obbligo per le scale superiori a 3m, di utilizzare LA BARRA STABILIZZATRICE COME BASE D’APPOGGIO, fino alla larghezza max. di 1,2m.

Nelle scale trasfomabili, il 2° ed il 3° elemento (se maggiori di 3m di lunghezza), non potrà più essere sfilato dalla base per essere utilizzato come elemento singolo.

1998 INTRODUCTION OF THE CERTIFICATION OF THE PRODUCTION PROCESS
with serial number and certificate for each product, including the components of the scaffold tower.

PROTECTION GENERAL MEASURES

  1. The general measures to be taken to protect the health and safety of the workers are:
    • risk assessment for health and safety;
    • elimination of the risks in relation to the knowledge acquired according to the technical progress and, where this is not possible, their minimisation;
    • reduction of risks at source;
    • information, training, consultation, and participation of the workers, i.e. of their representatives, to issues related to occupational health and safety in the workplace standards;
    • suitable instructions provided to
      the workers.
  2. Measures related to safety, hygiene and health during operations must never involve financial charges for the workers.

SCALA SYSTEM, WORK PLATFORMS PL AND ELEVAH FULLY PROTECT THE WORKER.

ITALIAN LEGISLATIVE DECREE N. 81

ART. 4. 1. The following note has been added to article 34, paragraph 1, of the legislative decree, after letter c):
«c-bis) working at height: work, which exposes the worker to risk of falling from a height of 2 m compared to the stable surface».

Faraone - Norme

1. The employer chooses the most suitable access system to temporary work sites at height in relation to the frequency of movement, difference in level, and duration of use.

The access system used must allow evacuation in case of imminent danger.

The passage from and to a platform, scaffolding, gangway access system must not involve further risks of falling.

Faraone - Norme

2. The employer provides a ladder to be used as a work station at height in the event the use of other work equipment deemed safer is not justified due to the limited level of risk and brief usage or due to the characteristics of the sites that cannot be modified.

Faraone - Norme

3. According to the type of equipment used in compliance with the previous paragraphs, the employer must identify the measures required to minimise the risks for the workers, which are related to such equipment, installing, where necessary, falling-prevention devices.

These devices must be configured and resistant enough to prevent or stop falls from work stations at height and prevent, as far as possible, workers from injuries.

Collective protection devices against falls can be interrupted only in points where ladders are installed.

ART. 36-TER

OBLIGATIONS OF THE EMPLOYER CONCERNING THE USE OF LADDERS

1. The employer must guarantee the stability of the ladders during use and according to the following criteria:

a) portable ladders must rest on a stable, fixed and resistant surface and with suitable dimensions in order to guarantee the horizontal position of the rungs;

f) Mobile ladders must be secured firmly before being used.

2. The employer must guarantee that workers always have a safe support and grip. In particular, manually transporting a weight on a ladder must not prevent a safe grip.

Faraone - Norme

ELASTICITY

Materials with elasticity lower than 5% cannot be used.

In the event of overload the ladder must not fail suddenly.

Standard EN131 states: "Aluminium alloy parts must have minimum fracture elongation (A) of 5% (EN131/2 page 4 section 3.1.1).

This means that any component: rungs, uprights, hinges, bases, etc., in the event of overload (see test) can «bend but not break» to protect the safety of persons and give them time to step down.

Die-cast aluminium components may suddenly fail. Therefore, WE AT FARAONE DO NOT USE THEM.


Faraone - Norme

TO CONCLUDE, considering that a high percentage of injuries occurs by falling from a height, we recommend using ladders that comply with Standard EN 131- 7 to guarantee total protection or using ladders with large rungs and comfortable inclination, to ensure safety and comfort.

For heights exceeding 2 mt, scaffold towers or aerial platforms.

In addition to standard products, this catalogue describes a product, which has been conceived, designed, and manufactured for any requirement.
