This is the first edition of CSA B45.8/IAPMO Z403, Terrazzo, concrete, and natural stone plumbing fixtures. This Standard supersedes CSA B45.8-2002, Terrazzo Plumbing Fixtures, and IAPMO PS 99-2007, Terrazzo, Marble, Concrete, Granite, and Slate Plumbing Fixtures.


0 Introduction



This harmonized Standard was developed in response to an industry request for a Standard for evaluation of terrazzo, concrete, and natural stone plumbing fixtures that would be acceptable for use in both Canada and the United States. Standards for plumbing fixtures made of other materials are also available or under development.



Harmonization activities for plumbing fixtures standards were undertaken in 2005 by a Joint Harmonization Task Group (JHTG) on Plumbing Fixtures, in which the CSA and IAPMO plumbing fixtures committees were equally represented. The responsibility for procedural matters and final approval of technical content was assumed by technical committees at higher levels within each standard development organization (SDO).


1 Scope



This Standard covers terrazzo, concrete, and natural stone plumbing fixtures and specifies requirements for materials, construction, performance, testing, and markings of these fixtures.



This Standard covers the following plumbing fixtures:

(a) bathtubs and combination tub/showers;

(b) lavatories;

(c) shower bases and shower stalls; and

(d) sinks:

(i) bar sinks;

(ii) kitchen sinks;

(iii) laundry sinks;

(iv) service sinks; and

(v) wash fountains.



In this Standard, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard.


Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.


Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.


Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (nonmandatory) to define their application.
