Standard Specification for Binding Mounting Area Dimensions on Alpine Skis and Bindings

Significance and Use

4.1 This specification defines the area wherein parts of the binding may be mounted. Standard dimensions and location for a binding mounting area enable a ski designer to locate reinforcing elements within this area. Standard dimensions also enable the binding designer to determine all interface dimensions for binding unit size, screw locations, etc. Bindings and skis built in compliance with this specification are compatible. This specification does not apply to any bindings or skis manufactured prior to Jan. 1, 1979.

Abstract

This specification covers dimensions for binding mounting areas to be used in alpine skis and mounting-related dimensions on alpine ski bindings, in order to optimize the compatibility of the functional unit" ski-binding-retention device- boot." The area wherein parts of the binding may be mounted is defined. Standard dimensions and location for a binding mounting area enable a ski designer to locate reinforcing elements within this area. Standard dimensions also enable the binding designer to determine all interface dimensions for binding unit size, screw locations, etc.

Scope

1.1 This specification covers2 dimensions for binding mounting areas for alpine skis and mounting-related dimensions on alpine ski bindings as part of an interface (“ski-binding-boot”) system, in order to optimize the compatibility of the functional elements of the system. It contains data needed for the manufacture of alpine skis, and for manufacturers of alpine ski bindings, specifically with respect to the binding mounting area. This specification is applicable to alpine skis of the following chord lengths (see Terminology F472 for the definition of chord length, LN):

Group 1: LN 1700 mm

Group 2: 1400 mm LN < 1700 mm

Group 3: 1000 mm LN < 1400 mm

Group 4: 750 mm LN < 1000 mm

1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.3 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
