This European Standard has been prepared in order to specify the general design criteria for spectator facilities (permanent, movable, demountable and telescopic), with the purpose of enabling their functionality. Within this standard, minimum and recommended values for dimensions are occasionally presented. It should be recognised that these values are to be considered as values that, in part, recognise different national requirements as a basic provision. Attention is drawn to the fact that in certain countries additional/different requirements may be applicable due to existing national regulations or the equivalent. This European Standard specifies product characteristics for demountable (temporary) stands at permanent or temporary entertainment venues including sports stadiums, sport halls and indoor and outdoor facilities. Stands in fairgrounds and amusement parks are excluded from this standard (see EN 13814). This European Standard is not applicable to stands of moveable type in which the last row of places for spectators is less than 1 m height from the ground. This document (EN 13200-6:2012) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 315 "Spectator facilities", the secretariat of which is held by UNI (Italy). The responsible German committee is Working Committee NA 005-01-34 AA "Zuschauertribünen (SpA zu CEN/TC 315)" ("Spectator facilities (national mirror committee for CEN/TC 315)"). This standard differs from DIN EN 13200-6:2006-10 as follows: a) the scope has been rendered more precise (this standard is not applicable to stands of moveable type in which the last row of places for spectators is less than 1 m height from the ground); b) the term "stands of moveable type for spectators" has been defined in 3.10; c) EN 13814 has been included in the Bibliography.
