This document specifies test methods for the determination of strength of the structure of free standing or screen and wall hanging office storage furniture as well as stability of free standing units. This document is applicable to mobile furniture, with the exception of the test described in 5.2 which is replaced by the test described in 6.7 of EN 14074:2004. This document does not apply to high density mechanized filing systems, rotary filing systems, or plan files. The tests are intended to simulate overbalancing forces and structural loads, which may occur during normal functional use, as well as misuse that might reasonably be expected to occur. Safety depending on the structure of the building is not included, e.g. the strength of wall hanging cabinets includes only the cabinet and its parts. The wall and the wall attachment are not included. Safety requirements can be found in EN 14073-2. Assessment of ageing is not included.
