Product description

Classification of Indoor Environment 2008 is intended for use in construction and building design and in associated contracting, as well as by the building materials industry, in striving for healthier and more comfortable buildings. The classification can be used for new constructions and, when applicable, also for renovation. The classification specifies target and design values for indoor climate and supports the work of developers, designers, equipment manufacturers, contractors, and maintenance personnel. It can be referred to in preparation of construction and mechanical specifications (appendix cards to building specification models and mechanical specification models). The classification supplements the National Building Code of Finland, General Requirements for Quality in Construction Work (MaalausRYL 2001, RunkoRYL 2000, SisäRYL 2000, TalotekniikkaRYL 2002), Model Specifications for Constructions (RT 15-10723), Model Specifications for HVAC Systems of Buildings (LVI 03-10360), the General Agreement between Contractors (RT 16-10699, LVI 03-10299), RT and HVAC standards sheets published by the Building Information Foundation RTS, and other documents related to construction. The classification does not overrule official building codes or interpretations of them.
Classification of Indoor Environment 2008 replaces Classification of Indoor Environment 2000.
In finnish published as HVAC, RT, KH, Ratu and SIT standards sheets LVI 05-10440, RT 07-10946, KH 27-00422, Ratu 437-T and SIT 05-610065.
