BSEN1004:2020 - Important Changes You Need to Know!
The standards for towers set out the design rules manufacturers should follow, such as the critical safety features which must be included, the performance requirements and the essential dimensions.
Updating and revising those standards is an important process that continually improves tower safety.
What are the new tower standards?
Towers for sale or hire in the UK are covered by either BS EN 1004 or BS 1139-6. Which standard applies depends on the type of tower.
EN 1004: mobile access towers
Let’s begin with the basic EN 1004 mobile access tower – a straightforward but versatile piece of access equipment. By definition, an EN 1004 mobile access tower is a freestanding, single bay structure with four legs and wheels (so that it’s mobile). It has only one working platform at a time and can reach a maximum platform height of 8m outdoors and 12m indoors. They’re generally made of aluminium or GRP (fibreglass).
A revised European standard for these towers was published in November 2020, known as EN 1004-1:2020 (published by BSI in the UK as BS EN 1004-1:2020). It replaced EN 1004:2004, the previous version, which was then withdrawn in November 2021. The -1 in the number means part 1.
Alongside that came a new second part to the standard, which covers the drafting and content of instruction manuals for these scaffold towers. This standard, which was published in November 2021, is EN 1004-2:2021 and the new part 2 replaces the now withdrawn standard EN 1298.
The main changes in EN 1004 affecting users are:
- Low level towers (under 2.5m), often called room scaffold towers, are now covered by the standard for the first time. This means you might now need stabilisers on some of these towers where they were not previously required. To find out, check the latest copy of the instruction manual for the tower.
- New safeguards have been introduced to help prevent accidents, such as measures to prevent castor wheels falling out and a requirement for the platforms to be secured at both ends.
- Shorter maximum distances between platforms will limit the distance of any potential fall
(max 2.25m, down from 4.2m).
- Shorter maximum distance from the ground to first platform will again limit the distance of potential falls (first platform height 3.4m, down from 4.6m).
- Instruction manuals will be more comprehensive and user-friendly.
