CSA B45.8/IAPMO Z403-2023 Terrazzo, concrete, composite stone, and natural stone
Terrazzo, concrete, composite stone, and natural stone plumbing fixtures
0.1 This harmonized Standard was developed in response to an industry request for a Standard for evaluation of terrazzo, concrete, composite stone, 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.
0.2 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).
1.1 This Standard covers terrazzo, concrete, composite stone, and natural stone plumbing fixtures and specifies requirements for materials, construction, performance, testing, and markings of these fixtures.
1.2 This Standard covers the following plumbing fixtures:
a) bathtubs and combination tub/showers;
c) shower bases and shower stalls; and
i) bar sinks;
ii) kitchen sinks;
iii) laundry sinks;
iv) service sinks; and
v) wash fountains.
