SCHEDULE 1(Section 6)Test for Strength of Parts Made of a Textile or Other Pliable Material that are Permanently Affixed to a Rigid Structural Component

  • 1 The following method is to be used for testing the strength of playpen or accessory parts that are made of a textile or other pliable material and that are permanently affixed to a rigid structural component of the product:

    • (a) assemble the playpen or accessory according to the manufacturer’s instructions, omitting any attachments that could interfere with the conduct of the test;

    • (b) over a period of five seconds, gradually apply a force of 130 N using a clamp with a 19-mm diameter clamping surface to a part that is made of a textile or other pliable material and that is permanently affixed to a rigid structural component, in the direction that is most likely to cause the part to tear or become detached from the component, and maintain the force for 10 seconds; and

    • (c) repeat the step set out in paragraph (b) for all the other playpen or accessory parts that are made of a textile or other pliable material and that are permanently affixed to a rigid structural component.
