Standard Test Methods for Evaluating Design and Performance Characteristics of Selectorized Strength Equipment
|Publication Date:||1 December 2017|
|ICS Code (Metrology and measurement in general):||17.020|
These test methods specify procedures and apparatus used for testing and evaluating selectorized strength equipment for compliance to Specification F2216. Both design and operational parameters will be evaluated. Where possible and applicable, accepted test methods from other recognized bodies will be used and referenced.
Requirements-Selectorized strength equipment is to be tested in accordance with these test methods or Test Methods F2571 for all of the following parameters:
Edge and corner sharpness,
Weight stack travel,
Weight stack selector pin retention,
Function of adjustments and locking mechanisms,
Handgrip design and retention,
Rope and belt systems:
End fitting design,
Chain drive design,
Rope pulley design,
Belt pulley design,
Pull in points,
Weight stack enclosure design,
Loading and deflection:
Intrinsic loading and associated deflection,
Extrinsic loading and associated deflection,
Documentation and warnings verification, and
Additional universal design and construction requirements.
This test method2 contains additional requirements to address the accessibility of the equipment for persons with disabilities.
