DESCRIPTION
This standard BS EN 792-13:2000+A1:2008 Hand-held non-electric power tools. Safety requirements is classified in these ICS categories:
  • 25.140.10 Pneumatic tools
  • 25.140.99 Other hand-held tools
  • 25.140.01 Hand-held tools in general
This standard is applicable to fastener driving tools which are handled by one person and in which energy in a linear movement is applied to a loaded fastener for the purpose of driving this into a workpiece of a determined material. During the driving operation, the fastener leaves the tool partially or entirely, with sufficient velocity to overcome the resistance of penetration, and forms a mechanical connection or attachment of different workpieces. The energy required for driving a fastener is provided by compressed air or combustible gases. NOTE 1 Fastener driving tools are also referred to for example as Nailers, Staplers, Tackers, Pinners. NOTE 2 The workpiece material can, for example, consist of wood, wooden materials, plastic material, fibre materials - loose or condensed, cement- and lime materials, metal. This standard contains requirements for the design, marking and information for use of fastener driving tools, corresponding to the specific hazards listed in clause 4. The standard sets out the means of verification for these requirements. Where, for clarity, an example of a safety measure is given in the text, this shall not be considered as the only possible solution. Any other solution leading to the same risk reduction is permissible if an equivalent level of safety is achieved. This standard is applicable to fastener driving tools which have been produced after the date of publication of the standard. This standard is not applicable to stapling pliers and vibration hammers. NOTE 3 "Stapling pliers" are handheld power operated tools equipped with a fixed or moving anvil bar in front of the muzzle, which are used predominantly for joining paper, leather, textiles and similar materials. This standard is not applicable to fastener driving tools in which the energy for driving fasteners is drawn from cartridges or from any type of electric supply.
