1.1 This specification applies to eye, face, and head protective devices, designed for use by players of the sport of paintball, which minimize or significantly reduce injury to the eye, adnexa of eye, face, and head due to paintball impact or penetration, or both.
1.2 EHPDs by nature provide three types of protection. The first type of protection is for the eyes and adnexa of eye and not necessarily for any other parts of the face or head. The second type of protection adds coverage for the ears and face. The third type of coverage adds cranial coverage in addition to that provided to types II and III. These coverage types are defined in Section 8.
1.3 This specification does not limit the wearing of eyeglasses or contact lenses when used in conjunction with the EHPD.
1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given 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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.6 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.
