    Withdrawn Rationale:

    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.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F08 on Sports Equipment, Playing Surfaces, and Facilities, this specification was withdrawn in January 2016 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.

    1. Scope

    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.
