Water based surface embedded Heating and Cooling systems

Water based surface embedded Heating and Cooling systems

The usage of water based surface embedded heating and cooling systems enjoys great popularity in new and old buildings. The decision by public and private builder for heating and cooling systems are not only because of the hidden heating and cooling surfaces.

The following materials are used predominantly in the heating and cooling systems as pipe line systems in Germany:

  • Polyethiene with increased temperature resitance (PE-RT)
  • Networked polythiene (PE-X)
  • Polypropiene (PP)
  • Polybutiene (PB)
  • Copper

An independently tested heat and cooling emission is an important basis for the coverage of heating and cooling requirements. The right buying decision means cash money for customer.

Cofidence is good - DIN-Geprüft is better!

DIN-Geprüft - Heating Piping Systems

With the recognized and neutral certification mark "DIN-Geprüft" (= Tested), DIN CERTCO offers the manufacturer an opportunity to convince its customers of the quality of its products and supports the buying decision by using our DIN mark - which is a synonym for confidence.

New Testing and Certification Basis

With the revision of the standards specified above DIN CERTCO accordingly adapted also its certification scheme. As of September 2008 the following European standards are used as the basis for testing and certification of water based surface embedded heating and cooling systems:

  • DIN EN 1264-1 "Water based surface embedded heating and cooling systems - Part 1: Definitions and symbols"
  • DIN EN 1264-2 "Water based surface embedded heating and cooling systems - Part 2: Floor heating: Prove methods for the determination of the thermal output using calculation and test methods"
  • DIN EN 1264-3 "Water based surface embedded heating and cooling systems - Part 3: Dimensioning"
  • DIN EN 1264-4 "Water based surface embedded heating and cooling systems - Part 4: Installation"
  • DIN EN 1264-5 "Water based surface embedded heating and cooling systems - Part 5: Heating and cooling surfaces embedded in floors, ceilings and walls - Determination of the thermal output"

Quality criterias

The certification scheme defines the requirements and testing procedures for heating and cooling systems. The following quality criterias are part of the test:

  • Heat capacity
  • Planning respectively laying under consideration of the maximum surface temperature
  • Installation hints provided by the manufacturer concerning the construction of the floors, ceilings and wall construction and the corresponding purpose.

Testing and Assessment

Only those water based surface embedded heating and cooling systems are granted the "DIN-Geprüft" mark which provide the accordance with the standards by a successfully passing test in a testing laboratory recognized by DIN CERTCO and subsequent neutral assessment.

After a positive assessment result, DIN CERTCO issues a certificate which is valid for 5 years.

The registration number for a clear identification of the certified product has the following structure: 7F000-F/-D/-W (the additions F, D and W indicate certified use in floors, ceilings or walls).

How should test reports be sent to ensure a smoth processing of certification procedures?

In order to process the certification procedures, DIN CERTCO requires all the necessary test reports on the thermal testing of the heating or cooling capacity and the technical documentation (test report C) on time.

Ideally, these should always be sent by the involved test laboratories as a PDF file to the customer and in parallel to the responsible DIN CERTCO customer service. This saves paper, it is fast and everyone has the complete information for further processing of the certification procedures.

Which changes result from the new certification scheme (Edition: 2021-10)

For many years, planners and installers at home and abroad have relied on the "DIN-Geprüft" mark and the associated trouble-free operation of room-surface integrated heating and cooling systems in accordance with DIN EN 1264 . Whether in Europe or Asia, the DIN certificate opens up access to local markets worldwide.

But even what is good can be made even better. The responsible European Standards Committee has revised DIN EN 1264. The current version was published in 2021-08. Together with our recognized testing laboratories, we have incorporated the changes contained in Parts 1 to 5 into the DIN certification program "Room surface integrated heating and cooling systems with water flow" (as of 2021-10).

In the Documents section you will find the current application documents for certification including the valid fee schedule as well as all current certificate holders.

It is possible to access this as a PDF document on our website at www.dincertco.de. You will also find the current application documents for the certification including the valid schedule of fees as well as all valid certificate holders.

The main changes at a glance:

  • Scope of application clarified
  • Definition of integrated heating and cooling systems specified
  • Types of integrated heating and cooling systems expanded
  • Section "Thermal conductivity of materials, effective thermal resistance of carpet" deleted
  • Conditions for renewal of certificates changed
  • Proof of compliance with the requirements for the heating cables used
  • Data sheet according to annex A revised
  • Editorial changes

What concrete changes will there be for you?

  • For all new heating and cooling systems to be tested, for which the DIN mark is to be applied for, the new certification scheme is to be bindingly applied after its publication.
  • All existing DIN certificates based on the old certification scheme (as of 2009-11) must be converted to the new certification scheme for renewal at the latest. However, this can also be done earlier upon request.
  • Modifications or extensions of DIN-certified products must be carried out according to the new certification scheme.
  • All products must provide proof of conformity with the currently valid standard in the form of a current test report C and a new data sheet by a test laboratory recognized by us.
  • Please make sure that the test report also refers to the valid certification scheme including the date of issue.
  • Furthermore, in order to minimize the processing time, the testing laboratory should send you and us all the necessary reports directly as a PDF file.

We are ready. Our experts know the changes in detail and are happy to answer your specific questions.
