IEC 60335-2-80:2015 RLV is one of the standards featured recently on our webstore and in advance of hot summer days serves as a good example of the impact our work has on everyone’s daily life. So why is this standard important? Let’s have a look at its scope:
Examples of fans that are within the scope of this standard are ceiling fans; duct fans; partition fans; pedestal fans and table fans. This standard also applies to separate controls supplied with fans. Appliances not intended for normal household use but which nevertheless may be a source of danger to the public, such as appliances intended to be used by laymen in shops, in light industry and on farms, are within the scope of this standard. As far as is practicable, this standard deals with the common hazards presented by appliances that are encountered by all persons in and around the home.
This means that producers of fans used at home but also around you in industrial context need to follow the safety requirements described in this document. They need to be produced and installed in a manner which does not cause any risk to your health. To find out more please check the description of this standard on our webstore.
This is one of many examples of how our work is crucial to your daily life and we will share more in the near future on this blog.
