EN 13830 Curtain walling products CE Certification
Summary： Curtain walling products CE Test, CE Certification requirements
1. EU Regulation for Curtain walling products CE
Construction products (CPR) Regulation (EU) No 305/2011
2. Curtain walling products CE standards
EN 13830:2003 Curtain walling - Product standard
Latest version : EN 13830:2015
3. EN 13830 Applicable Product
This European standard specifies requirements of curtain walling kit intended to be used as a building envelope to provide weather resistance, safety in use and energy economy and heat retention and provides test/assessments/calculation methods and compliance criteria of the related performances.
The curtain walling kit covered by this standard should fulfil its own integrity and mechanical stability but does not contribute to the load bearing or stability of the main building structure, and could be replaced independently of it.
This standard applies to curtain walling kit ranging from a vertical position to ±15° from the vertical. Any sloping parts should be contained within the curtain walling kit.
This standard is applicable to the whole of the curtain walling kits, including the fixings.
Curtain walling according to this standard is intended to be used as part of the building envelope.
This European standard does not include:
- ‘patent glazing’(glazed sloping roofs) kits;
- roof glazing constructions;
- facades made of precast concrete panels as part of the wall(see EN 14992)
4. Curtain walling products CE Test Item：

l Durability of air permeability: - of gaskets; - of sealant
5. Curtain walling products CE Certification system
Curtain walling products CPR certification，can choose the following system：
Performance Level（fire ）
Curtain walling kit
As external walls subjected to reaction to fire requirements
A1,A2,B,C (products/materials for which a clearly identifiable stage in the production process results in an improvement of the reaction to fire resistance）
As external walls not subjected to reaction to fire requirements
6. CE mark-& CE nameplate
Construction products shall be marked with CE, and then can export to EU market，each certification standard for CPR list the detailed requirement for the CE mark and CE label, Professional certification engineer of Shanghai GOM will help and guide the Chinese factory to prepare and design the CE nameplate，to meet European market requirements.
7. Declaration of Performance for CPR
After the implementation of CPR regulations，EU require the construction products must provide DOP when export to EU，and CPR Regulation (EU) No 305/2011 detailed list the content and requirement of DOP，professional certification engineer of Shanghai GOM will help and guide the Chinese factory to prepare this document，this will help manufacturers to smoothly enter the EU market.
