    Significance and Use

    3.1 This guide sets forth minimum standard requirements for use in building codes and ordinances relating to self-closing and self-latching single leaf access, general-purpose gates.

    3.2 This guide does not apply to double leaf or double drive access gates.

    3.3 This guide does not have the effect of law, nor is it intended to supersede Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) guidelines, local codes or ordinances of a more restrictive nature.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This guide establishes the recommended minimum requirements for the design, construction and performance of self-closing and self-latching single leaf, general-purpose access gates. It is intended to provide an added degree of reliability in the performance of the self-closing and self-latching devices mounted to these gates.

    1.2 This guide should be referenced whenever any other standard requires a single leaf access gate to be self-closing and self-latching, with the exception of standards for pool or outdoor child safety gates.

    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. After installation and inspection, it is the responsibility of the homeowner or property manager to inspect and adjust the hardware, or the gate, or both, to compensate for ground movement and other factors so that the gate continues to effectively self-close and self-latch.
