    Withdrawn Rationale:

    These standard performance requirements established nationally recognized performance requirements for Class A (residential) and Class B (nonresidential) child's plastic chairs intended for outdoor use.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F15 on Consumer Products, these performance requirements were withdrawn in July 2017 in accordance with section 10.5.3.1 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the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 These standard performance requirements establish nationally recognized performance requirements for Class A (residential) and Class B (nonresidential) child's plastic chairs intended for outdoor use.

    1.2 These standard performance requirements are not applicable to chaises, multi-positional chairs, upholstered chairs, or other types of furniture.

    1.3 These standard performance requirements cover the performance of product regarding aspects of outdoor weathering, impact, static load, and rear leg testing.

    1.4 Products Manufactured from Recycled Plastics:

    1.4.1 Products may be manufactured from recycled plastics as long as the performance requirements are met.

    1.5 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.

    1.6 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.
