Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies (ISO

member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO technical

committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been established has

the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in

liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical

Commission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.

International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 3.

Draft International Standards adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting.

Publication as an International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies casting a vote.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this part of ISO 10542 may be the subject of patent

rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard ISO 10542-2 was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 173, Technical systems and aids

for disabled or handicapped persons, Subcommittee SC 1, Wheelchairs.

ISO 10542 consists of the following parts, under the general title Technical systems and aids for disabled or

handicapped persons — Wheelchair tiedown and occupant-restraint systems:
— Part 1: Requirements and test methods for all systems
— Part 2: Four-point strap-type tiedown systems

Annexes A and B form a normative part of this part of ISO 10542. Annex C is for information only.

Introduction

Providing effective protection for the wheelchair-seated occupant of a motor vehicle usually requires that after-market

equipment be installed to secure the wheelchair and restrain the person in the wheelchair. ISO 10542-1 gives

requirements for all wheelchair tiedown and occupant-restraint systems. The provisions of ISO 10542-1 apply except

as amended and supplemented by this part of ISO 10542, which gives particular requirements and test methods for

wheelchair tiedowns and occupant-restraint systems (WTORS) that use four-point, strap-type wheelchair tiedowns.

Technical systems and aids for disabled or handicapped persons —
Wheelchair tiedown and occupant-restraint systems —
Part 2:
Four-point strap-type tiedown systems
1 Scope

This part of ISO 10542 specifies test methods and requirements for design and performance, for instructions and

warnings to installers and users, and for product marking and labelling for wheelchair tiedown and occupant-restraint

systems (WTORS).

It applies only to WTORS that use belt-type occupant restraints and four-point strap-type wheelchair tiedowns that

are intended for adult-occupied wheelchairs used as forward-facing seats by passengers and drivers of motor

vehicles.

This part of ISO 10542 applies primarily to complete WTORS, but other parts of ISO 10542 can also be applied to

components and subassemblies sold separately and as replacement parts.

This part of ISO 10542 applies to WTORS intended for use with all types of manual and powered wheelchairs

intended for use by adults, including three- and four-wheeled scooters.
2 Normative reference

The following normative document contains provisions which, through reference in this text, constitute provisions of

do not apply. However, parties to agreements based on this part of ISO 10542 are encouraged to investigate the

possibility of applying the most recent edition of the normative document indicated below. For undated references,

the latest edition of the normative document referred to applies. Members of ISO and IEC maintain registers of

currently valid International Standards.

ISO 10542-2:2001(E)

a) Four-point, strap-type tiedowns shall be designed for effective attachment and tensioning on a wide range of

wheelchair types and sizes whilst meeting the angles in Figures 1 and 2, by providing adjustment in strap

assembly length, adjustment in the fore/aft location of vehicle anchor points, or both.

NOTE 1 Figure C.1 shows recommended securement point zones on wheelchairs for which a four-point, strap-type tiedown

system should be effective.

b) All securement-point end fittings of four-point tiedown assemblies shall engage with the securement points of the

surrogate wheelchair shown and specified in Figure E.1 and Figure E.4 of ISO 10542-1:—.

5 Instructions for installers

In addition to the requirements in 5.2 of ISO 10542-1:—, manufacturers' instructions for installers shall include the

recommendations for distances between anchor points of wheelchair tiedowns and the information illustrated in

Figures 1 and 2 indicating that:
� �

a) the side-view projected angle for the rear tiedown straps is between 30 and 45 from the horizontal,

� �

b) the side-view projected angle for the front tiedown straps is between 40 and 60 ,

c) the rear-view projected angle of the rear tiedown straps is within 10 of the wheelchair reference plane, and

d) the front-view-projected angle of the front tiedown straps is within 25 of the wheelchair reference plane, but

angled so as to provide some lateral stability to the wheelchair.

NOTE The angles shown are obtained by projecting the angle of each tiedown strap onto a vertical plane parallel to (side view)

or perpendicular to (rear view) the wheelchair reference plane.
