Significance and Use
4.1 The purpose of these tests are to provide valid and repeatable methods for the evaluation of fitness equipment assembled and maintained according to the manufacturer’s specifications. Use of these test methods in conjunction with Specification is intended to maximize the reliability of fitness equipment design and reduce the risk of serious injury resulting from design deficiencies.
1.1 These test methods specify procedures and apparatus used for testing and evaluating fitness equipment for compliance to Specification . Both design and operational parameters will be evaluated. Where possible and applicable, accepted test methods from other recognized bodies will be used and referenced.
1.2 It is the intent of this standard to specify test methods for fitness products for use by individuals age 13 and above.
1.3 Requirements—Fitness Equipment is to be tested for all of the following parameters:
1.3.2 Edge and Corner Sharpness.
1.3.3 Tube Ends and Holes.
1.3.4 Function of Adjustments and Locking Mechanisms.
1.3.5 Handgrip Design and Retention.
1.3.6 Foot Supports.
1.3.7 Load Development and Transmitting Systems.
1.3.8 Chain and Gear Drive Design.
1.3.9 Entrapment Zones and Guarding.
188.8.131.52 Intrinsic Loading.
184.108.40.206 Extrinsic Loading.
220.127.116.11 Handlebar Loading.
18.104.22.168 Endurance Loading.
(1) Seat frame endurance loading.
1.3.11 Switch and switch actuation mechanism endurance.
1.3.12 Electrical Guarding.
1.3.13 Maximum Surface Temperature.
1.3.14 Documentation and Warnings Verification.
1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values in parentheses are for information only.
1.5 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.
