    Rationale

    Figure A1.3 currently shows an upper platen thickness of 50 mm [2 in.]. A negative voter on a previous ballot item pointed out this should be a minimum dimension and not a specified dimension. The revised figure changes the dimension currently shown from 50 mm [2 in.], to the more correct dimension, TPLU Minimum 50 mm [2 in.]. This new dimension is consistent with the other figures in the standard.
