Spain’s Technical Building Code (the CTE) is the regulatory framework that establishes the basic quality requirements for buildings and their installations, to ensure compliance with the basic requisites for safety and habitability established in the Building Ordinance Law, or LOE. Part 1 of the CTE establishes the basic safety requirements for structures in case of fire and for use in general, and for habitability, in connection with hygiene conditions, protection against noise, and energy savings.
Part 2 of the CTE comprises the Basic Documents or BD that are regulatory in nature, and which take the place of the existing Basic Standards (NBE). The Basic Requirement for energy saving, HE2: Performance of thermal installations, is currently implemented through the applicable Regulations for Thermal Installations in Buildings (RITE).
The BRASELI Technical Sheets include the dimensional requirements, mechanical and physical properties, assembly instructions, tests carried out according to its Regulations ..., of the pipes and accessories corresponding to each Fitting System.
