Description / Abstract:

This European Standard specifies the constructional and performance characteristics, safety specifications, relevant test methods and marking of barbecues burning liquefied petroleum gas, referred to in the body of the text as "appliances".

This European Standard covers barbecues and contact grills, used outdoors and operating with the gases. They are fitted with at least one cooking device.

This European Standard applies to these appliances and their functional sections whether or not the latter are independent or incorporated into an assembly.

This European Standard also applies to appliances designed to be built-in.

This European Standard only applies to type testing.

Appliances supplied with third family gas at pressures greater are outside the field of application of this European Standard.

During the consideration of this text, it was apparent that the concept of thermal efficiency with regard to appliances such as barbecues was not appropriate.

This is because:

— during cooking, there is an additional transfer of heat due to the meat juices falling onto the refractories;

— there is no relation between the item to be cooked and the useful area;

— the barbecue is an outdoor appliance in which the action of the wind is important in relation to efficiency.

In consequence there is no specific requirement covering thermal efficiency for this type of appliance.

This European Standard does not state all applicable requirements for integral equipments of other nature (for example burners covered by EN 484).
