Shower hoses for (PN10) sanitary tapware (NF EN 1113)
SERCOVAM Laboratories test the shower hoses for (PN10) sanitary tapware according to the norm EN1113. The visible surfaces of chromium-plated and Ni-Cr shower hoses are subjected to accelerated ageing, like corrosion test and thermal-shock aging according to the norm NF-EN248. Dimensional and functional characteristics must be previously checked. Then, mechanical characteristics will be controlled according to a strength resistance test under a load of 500 N and a bending endurance test of the hose. Our hydraulic experts must verify the hydraulic performance, through waterproofness test under pressure, with high temperature, and liquid thermal shock by circulation between 20 and 70°C.
