This European Standard is applicable to gully tops and manhole tops made of flake graphite cast iron and/or spheroidal graphite cast iron whether in combination with concrete or not, with a clear opening up to and including 1 000 mm for covering gullies, manholes and inspection chambers for installation within areas subjected to pedestrian and/or vehicular traffic. It is applicable to manhole tops and gully tops for use in: - areas which can only be used by pedestrians and pedal cyclists (at least class A 15); - pedestrian areas and comparable areas, car parks or car parking decks (at least class B 125); - the area of kerbside channels of roads which, when measured from the kerb edge, extends a maximum of 0,5 m into the carriageway and a maximum of 0,2 m into the pedestrian area (at least class C 250); - carriageways of roads (including pedestrian streets), hard shoulders and parking areas, for all types of road vehicles (at least class D 400); - areas imposing high wheel loads, for example, aircraft pavements (at least class E 600); - areas imposing particularly high wheel loads, for example, aircraft pavements (class F 900). This European Standard is not applicable in isolation but only in combination with DIN EN 124-1 and gives guidance for combinations of covers/grating made of cast iron with frames according to DIN EN 124-3, DIN EN 124-4, DIN EN 124-5 or DIN EN 124-6. This European Standard is not applicable to: - cover fillings installed on site, for example concrete, paving blocks, etcetera; - concave gratings for class D 400 installed in carriageways of roads or hard shoulders and concave gratings for classes F 900 and E 600; - gratings/covers as part of prefabricated drainage channels according to DIN EN 1433; - floor and roof gullies in buildings which are specified in DIN EN 1253 (all parts); and - surface boxes.
