Standard Specification for Goggle- and Spectacle-Type Eye Protectors for Selected Motor Sports
|Publication Date:||1 July 2012|
This specification covers eye protectors, exclusive of helmet-mounted visors, designed for use by riders of motorcycles, mopeds, and snowmobiles for off road use that minimize or significantly reduce injury to the eye and adnexa as a result of impact and penetration by objects that may be kicked up from the road, track, trail, or snow surfaces and made airborne and, as such, likely to cause eye discomfort or injury. This specification does not address shield-type eye protectors such as are connected to, integral to, and/or supported by protective helmets. Protective eyewear offers protection only to the eyes and does not protect other parts of the head, face, or neck.
Protectors are divided into two types, goggles or spectacles, depending on their design characteristics.
This specification does not apply to prescription eyewear. (Warning-Impact-resistant prescription spectacles that conform to the standard specifications of ANSI Z87.1 should be used if spectacles are to be worn under goggle-type eyewear as covered by this specification.)
In this specification, the use of the word "shall" indicates a mandatory requirement. The word "should" indicates a recommendation.
Units-The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only. Metric units of measure in this specification are in accordance with the International System of Units (SI). If a value for measurement as given in this specification is followed by an equivalent value in other units, the first stated is to be regarded as the requirement. A given equivalent value may be approximate.
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.
