BS EN 124:2015 “Gully tops and manhole tops for vehicle and pedestrian areas. Parts 1 to 6.” • Contains the essence of the 1994 standard together with the introduction of some new, additional tests. For iron castings, these additional tests comprise of cover stability under edge loads and resistance to unauthorised chamber access by minors. • Separate requirements for products made of different materials. • This standard is published and available for purchase from BSI. • The European Commission has yet to harmonise this standard and therefore CE marking does not currently apply. • All of Wrekin’s castings conform to this standard. • Wrekin was the first company globally to have its ironwork range Kitemarked to this standard.
Fully complies with BS EN 124:2015 and has patented features that make it superior to competing products.

In the UK, BS 7903 has just been updated to the 2020 version, which supersedes the 1997 version. It gives guidance for the selection and installation of manhole tops and gully tops conforming to BS EN 124: 2015 used in conjunction with other components and materials in highway applications. It expands on EN 124, with particular reference to UK practice, and is an important normative reference contained in many UK standards, regulations and specifications, including CD 534.BS 7903 advises its users to consider the desirability of obtaining third-party certification of conformity with BS EN 124. It goes into much more detail than EN 124 on the importance of installation materials and their compatibility and interaction with the frame. Regarding classification and place of installation, it also highlights the need to consider pre-service loads such as construction site traffic. Also to be taken into account are dynamic forces from traffic leading to seating wear and frame bearing pressure.
