Standard Specification for Shock Attenuation Properties of Fencing Surfaces
|Publication Date:||10 February 1996|
|ICS Code (Sports facilities):||97.220.10|
1.1 This specification covers shock absorption properties of fencing surfaces as measured by a drop test. The minimum performance standard for shock absorption is defined. Guidelines for other features and properties of fencing surfaces are described.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
1.3 This specification does not purport to address all the safety concerns, if any, associated with fencing surfaces and will not prevent all surface-related injuries. It is the responsibility of the user of the surfaces to establish appropriate safety and health practices, including, but not limited to, foot movement, footwear (shoes), and training practices. Specific precautionary statements are given in 5.3.
