TEST FOR DETERMINATION OF MESH OPENING SIZES
1. The method to be used for testing the size of mesh openings on a crib, cradle or bassinet is as follows:
(a) cut a sample of mesh with dimensions of 305 mm × 305 mm;
(b) apply a uniformly distributed test load of 0.15 N/mm to two opposite edges of the sample so as to induce a state of uniaxial tension in the sample;
(c) attempt to insert the tip of the probe illustrated in Figure 1 through openings in the mesh, without cutting the fibres of the mesh, using a force of not more than 22 N at 10 randomly selected areas in the sample; and
(d) repeat the procedures set out in paragraphs (b) and (c) on the other two opposite edges of the sample.
