ASTM WK45373

    Revision of F2291 - 13 Standard Practice for Design of Amusement Rides and Devices

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: F2291 - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: F24.24 | Committee F24 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    The F-24 Strengths and Loads Subtask Group has reviewed the exemption in section 8.30.2 and is recommending this single exemption be deleted. Elimination of this specific exemption will mean the Designer/ Engineer of new portable rides and devices will now use the same existing requirement already in F-2291 section 8.30 for all applicable amusement rides and devices. Elimination of this exemption will not effect amusement rides and devices that are considered Service Proven.
