Specification for masonry units - Part 5: Manufactured stone masonry units; German version EN 771-5:2011+A1:2015

Title (German)

Festlegungen für Mauersteine - Teil 5: Betonwerksteine; Deutsche Fassung EN 771-5:2011+A1:2015


This European Standard specifies the characteristics and performance requirements of manufactured stone masonry units for which the main intended uses are facing or exposed masonry in load bearing or non-load bearing building and civil engineering applications. The units are suitable for all forms of coursed or random masonry walling, including single leaf, cavity, partition, retaining and the external masonry to chimneys. They can provide fire protection, thermal insulation, sound insulation and sound absorption. This standard covers concrete masonry units manufactured to resemble natural stone using casting or pressing techniques with or without textured surfaces produced, by casting, splitting, washing, blasting or tooling and with or without variable outline effects. It covers homogeneous masonry units and those consisting of different facing and backing concrete mixes, but excludes those manufactured with an adhesive bonded decorative face. This standard does not cover masonry units intended to conform to EN 771-3. It defines the performance related to, for example strength, density, dimensional accuracy, surface appearance and provides for the assessment and verification of constancy of performance (AVCP) of the product to this European Standard. The marking requirements for products covered by this European Standard are also included. This European Standard does not apply to storey height panels, masonry units used for chimney flues or units manufactured with an adhesive bonded decorative face. It does not include products intended to be used as a damp proof course nor does it specify standard sizes for manufactured stone masonry units or work dimensions and angles of specially shaped units. It does not cover units with an incorporated thermal insulation material bonded to the faces of the unit susceptible to be exposed to fire. From the German side the experts of NA 005-06-02 AA "Koordinierungsausschuss Mauersteine (SpA zu CEN/TC 125/WG 1)" ("Coordinating committee Masonry Units (Mirror Committee of CEN/TC 125/WG 1)") have accompanied the work.
