    This clause of Part1 is replaced by the following. This European Standard deals with the safety of electric room heaters for household and similar purposes, their rated voltage being not more than 250V for single-phase appliances and 480V for other appliances. NOTEZ101 Examples of appliances that are within the scope of this standard are convector heaters; fan heaters; heaters for use in greenhouses; liquid-filled radiators; panel heaters; radiant heaters; tubular heaters; ceiling mounted heat lamp appliances.. For extraction fans of ceiling mounted heat lamp appliances, EN60335‑2‑80 is applicable as far as is reasonable. Appliances intended to be used by laymen in shops and other premises for normal housekeeping purposes, are within the scope of this standard. NOTEZ102 Examples of appliance for household environment are appliances for typical housekeeping functions used in the household environment that may also be used by non expert users for typical housekeeping functions: in shops and other similar working environments; in farm houses; by clients in hotels, motels and other residential type environments; in bed and breakfast type environments. NOTEZ103 Household environments include the dwelling and its associated buildings, the garden, etc. As far as is practicable, this standard deals with the common hazards presented by appliances that are encountered by all persons in household and similar environments. However, in general, it does not take into account: children playing with the appliance; the use of the appliance by very young children; the use of the appliance by young children without supervision.
