ASTM F1004-21 pdf free download.Standard Consumer Safety Specification For Expansion Gates And Expandable Enclosures.
This consumer safety specification addresses incidents of head and neck entrapment in children’s expansion gates and expandable enclosures.It also addresses the ability of a pressure gate to resist a push-out force.
The U.S.Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) identified incidents that generally involved a child’s head or neck,or both,becoming entrapped in diamond-shaped openings and strangulation of children in V-shapes at the top of accordion style expansion gates or expandable enclosures.Additional incidents and injuries were identified that involved children attempting to climb up and over expansion gates and expandable enclosures,and pushing or pulling pressure gates out of doorways.
This consumer safety specification is written within the current state-of-the-art of gate and enclosure technology.It is intended that this consumer safety specification will be updated whenever substantive information becomes available,which necessitates additional requirements or justifies the revision of existing requirements.
This specification does not address incidents in which gates or enclosures are blatantly misused although warnings and safety instructions are required to be displayed prominently on and with each gate or enclosure.
This consumer safety specification covers minimum safety performance requirements, test methods, and requirements for labeling and instructional material to minimize hazards to young children resulting from the normal use and reasonably foreseeable misuse and abuse of expansion gates and expandable enclosures.

Products known as expansion gates and expandable enclosures, or by any other name, which are in the scope of this consumer safety specification are intended for young children aged six months through 24 months, and are defined in Section 3.

Expansion gates and expandable enclosures defined in Section 3 are for domestic use and are not to be confused with other types of gates or enclosures that may be specifically designed for commercial, institutional, agricultural, pet use, or any other such use.

No expansion gate or expandable enclosure as defined in Section 3, that is, produced after the approval date of this consumer safety specification either by label or other means, shall indicate compliance with this specification unless it conforms to all the requirements contained herein.

For expediency, expansion gates and expandable enclosures as defined in Section 3 will heretofore be referred to in this consumer safety specification as “gates” and “enclosures” unless referred to definitively.

The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
