Load classes A 15 – F 900
The European Standard EN 1433:2002 uses six load classifications between A15 – F900 for drainage channels for vehicular and pedestrian areas. The specified values refer to the test load in kilonewtons (kN).
Dynamic forces and increased traffic frequency change the requirements for drainage systems! If in doubt, choose a higher load class. If you have any questions, our experts will be happy to advise you on the selection of the right system!
Load classes for ultra heavy-duty loads and dynamic forces
The load classes of the EN 1433 standard are sufficient for many installation situations. For areas that are subject to a high frequency of ultra heavy-duty vehicles exerting extremely high loads and dynamic forces, they need to be more carefully considered on a project-specific basis. There are several factors that need to be taken into account such as steel reinforcement and expansion joints at the installation stage. Our technical support team are able to provide help and advice in these cases based on our knowledge and experience.
