Timber structures – Test methods – Performance of structural floor decking

This standard specifies a test method for determining the performance of structural floor decking subjected to:

  • Specified concentrated static load due to impose action from persons, furniture and equipment
  • Specified impact loads produced by human motion.

The decking considered is constructed from wood-based panels (plywood and OSB) supported on timber joists.  This standard is referenced in the harmonised European standard for wood-based panels – EN 13986.
