    Abstract

    This specification establishes the installation, safety, performance, and labeling requirements for devices intended to address the risk of injury and death associated with accidental falls from windows by children five years old and younger. It applies to window fall prevention devices that are to be used on any window, including those that are designated for emergency escape (egress) and rescue (ingress). It is, however, not intended to meet the unique requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

    This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification establishes requirements for devices intended to address the risk of injury and death associated with accidental falls through open windows by children five years old and younger.

    1.2 This specification is not intended to meet the unique requirements of Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA).

    1.3 This specification applies to window fall prevention devices, including window opening control devices, window fall prevention screens, and fall prevention window guards, that are to be used on operable windows, including those that are designated for emergency escape (egress) and rescue (ingress).

    Note 1: A separate safety specification, Safety Specification F2006, covers window fall prevention devices for non-emergency escape (egress) and rescue (ingress) windows in installations more than 75 ft6 (23 m) above ground level in multiple family dwelling buildings since windows at these heights are beyond the reach of rescue ladders currently in use.

    1.4 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    1.5 This standard does not purport to address all safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and to determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
