In addition to the requirements given in EN 15182-1, this document applies to hand-held combination branchpipes (nozzles) PN 16 with a maximum flow rate up to 1 000 l/min at a reference pressure of 6 bar (0,6 MPa). It deals with: - safety requirements; - performance requirements; - test methods. This document applies to branchpipes as defined in Annex A of EN 15182-1.

This document applies to hand-held branchpipes. It deals with: - safety requirements; - performance requirements; - test methods; - classification and designation; - instructions for use and maintenance; - marking. It is advised to read this document in conjunction with parts 2, 3 or 4. This document does not apply to branchpipes covered by EN 671, foam branchpipes covered by EN 16712-3, powder branchpipes, or branchpipes with a maximum working pressure above 40 bar. NOTE 1 The Working Group has thoroughly addressed and discussed the issue of electrical safety in relation to using water branchpipes. However, an electrical test is not incorporated into this document as international experience, as well as research (NFPA handbook, French research, etc) have shown that any "artificial" or "laboratory style" testing will not take into account poor visibility and other conditions present on any fireground, nor the problem of estimating distances under these conditions. The end user is advised (through the operating instructions, see 8.1) that when fighting fires in or near electrical installations, the power should be cut off as soon as possible. Also, it is advised to maintain a maximum possible safety distance (at least 1 m up to 1 000 V) and to use a spray jet with a minimum spray angle of 30 °. NOTE 2 It is essential to take into account reaction forces into consideration before choosing and operating branchpipes.

In addition to the requirements given in EN 15182-1, this document applies to hand-held branchpipes with smooth bore jet and/or one fixed spray jet angle branchpipes PN 16, with a maximum flow rate of 1 000 l/min at a reference pressure of 6 bar (0,6 MPa). It deals with: - safety requirements; - performance requirements; - test methods. This document applies to branchpipes as defined in Annex A of EN 15182-1. WARNING 1 - These branchpipes offer no or inadequate protection for firefighters when the spray angle is less than 30 ° and therefore, should not be used in high risk firefighting situations such as internal attack. WARNING 2 - These branchpipes should not be used when fighting fires in or near electrical installations when the spray angle is less than 30° without written authorisation from the manufacturer in the manual. This authorisation from the manufacturer should include safety distances.

In addition to the requirements given in EN 15182-1, this document applies to hand-held high pressure branchpipes (nozzles) PN 40 with a maximum flow rate up to 250 l/min at a reference pressure of 6 bar (0,6 MPa). It deals with: - safety requirements; - performance requirements; - test methods. This document applies to branchpipes as defined in Annex A of EN 15182-1.
