Significance and Use
This test method is intended to measure the maximum arrest force and dynamic strength on treestand FAS and components or subsystems. This test is intended for program quality assurance and production quality control purposes. It is not intended to be an independent material or product acceptance test.
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the load capacities for treestand fall arrest systems (FAS) and components or subsystems.
1.2 This test method addresses equipment used in hunting situations requiring personal protection against falls from heights and applies to the manufacturers, distributors, purchasers, and users of such equipment.
1.3 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.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the 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 determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
