ABOUT THE PROJECT INSPECTION
Inspection standard adopted
ISO2859/MIL-STD-105E/GB2828, single sampling plan for normal inspection.
Critical - Regulatory requirement - Potential product removal from market or safety related issue - Critical non-conformity is not allowed;
Major - Potential customer dissatisfaction or product return - AQL1.5 for major non-conformity;
Minor - Minimal effect with no customer dissatisfaction or product return -AQL4.0 for minor non-conformity;
- Water retention test:
A few small drops of water on the outside of the water retaining area are acceptable. 1. A temperature not exceeding 38 °C. 2. Adjust the flow rate to (11 ±1) l/min Test A: Spray for 1 min across the width and height of all door(s)/panel(s) of the shower enclosure at 90°to their surface from a distance of 30 cm using the test shower head. Restrict the spray to the area within 30 cm below the top of the door(s)/panel(s) and 30 cm above the bottom of the door(s)/panel(s). Note the appearance of any leaks from the water retaining area
- Thermally toughened safety glass test
When tested in accordance with 5.1of EN14428, the Min. particle count shall be 40pcs in 50 x 50mm
- Corrosion resistance test
All corrosion protection shall conform with the relevant requirements specified in European and International Standards. For example: −−
the Min. paint adhesion performance for powder-coated or wet-painted surfaces shall comply with a cross-cut value ≤ 2 when tested in accordance with EN ISO 2409; −−
the Min. average thickness of coating on aluminium shall be of grade AA 8 when tested in accordance with one of the methods given in ISO 7599. In no cases shall the Min. local thickness be less than 80 % of the Min. average thickness.
- Endurance test:
Shall not show any functional deterioration after 20 000 closing-opening cycles.
- Stability test:
When tested in accordance with 5.6 of EN14428, shower enclosures shall withstand an energy representing the impact of a human body on a large impact area (e.g. blow from shoulder, fall) without any functional deterioration which could result in injury to the user.
