Significance and Use
The purpose of this practice is to aid in providing the end user with an appropriate functioning system and release/retention value by providing the rental facility with an ongoing program for monitoring the appropriateness of functional characteristics of the system. It is assumed that these procedures are integrated into the maintenance and operating procedures specified by the equipment manufacturers. This practice is not intended to create additional or redundant requirements for the rental facility. However, this practice should be the basis for the development of rental procedures if the equipment manufacturer's maintenance and operating procedures do not specifically state that they are in compliance with this practice. This practice will aid the rental facility in providing the end user with an appropriate release/retention value.
This practice is applicable to rental facilities that use releasable Alpine ski bindings. It is not intended as a method for evaluating equipment design.
1.1 This practice establishes a uniform method for the sampling and inspection of complete and incomplete Alpine ski/binding/boot systems used in rental operations. This practice is appropriate for use in rental applications in which all or part of the functional components of the system are supplied by the rental facility.
1.2 This practice should be followed by any facility that rents complete or incomplete Alpine ski/binding/boot systems to an end user.
Note 1—Refer to Practice F1063 for equivalent procedures and tolerances for retail systems.
