This European Standard specifies design loads for lighting columns. It applies to lighting columns of nominal height (including any bracket) not exceeding 20 m. Special structural designs to permit the attachment of signs, overhead wires, etcetera are not covered by this European Standard. The requirements for lighting columns made from materials other than concrete, steel, aluminium or fibre reinforced polymer composite (for example wood, plastic and cast iron) are not specifically covered in this standard. Fibre reinforced polymer composite lighting columns are covered in this standard, in conjunction with Annex B of EN 40-7:2002. This European Standard includes performance requirements for horizontal loads due to wind. Passive safety and the behaviour of a lighting column under the impact of a vehicle are not addressed. Such lighting columns will have additional requirements (see EN 12767). The committee responsible for this standard is Working Committee NA 005-10-29 AA "Lichtmaste und Leuchtenansatzstutzen (SpA zu CEN/TC 50)" ("Lighting columns and spigots (national mirror committee for CEN/TC 50)") at DIN.
