|Publication Date:||10 April 1998|
|ICS Code (Sports facilities):||97.220.10|
1.1 This specification covers the manufacture, assembly, recommended maintenance and use of complete residential basketball systems.
1.2 This specification is intended to reduce the potential hazards associated with the installation and use of residential basketball systems.
1.3 This specification is not intended to apply to the following:
1.3.1 Equipment intended to be used in places of public assembly, such as, but not limited to, schools, parks, public and private recreational facilities.
1.3.2 Individual components, such as rim, backboard, pole, portable base system, net, or other component when that component is not sold as a complete residential basketball system as defined in this specification.
1.3.3 Any residential basketball system that is mounted to any structure or surface other than that which is purchased as part of a complete residential basketball system. Examples include, but are not limited to, roof mounting, wall mounting, or any locally or self-manufactured components.
1.3.4 Any basketball equipment that does not use a full size rim, 18-in. (45.72-cm) diameter, or is designed for operational heights of less then 6 ft 6 in. (1.98 m) from the playing surface to the bottom of the backboard.
1.3.5 Accessories and add-ons.
1.4 This specification shall apply only to products manufactured after six months from the date this specification is published.
1.5 This specification does not cover product performance or quality, except as related to safety.
1.6 The tests are intended to uncover hazards, rather than to demonstrate the reliability of the system. The fact that a mechanism or material of a system fails during testing only is relevant if the failure creates a potential hazard.
1.7 The rationale for provisions in this specification are given in Appendix X1 and Appendix X2.
