EN 14120:2003+A1:2007 (E) 4 Introduction Roller sports are all the pastimes and competitions in which roller sports equipment is used. This equipment includes for example roller skates, inline skates and skateboards. The users range from small children to adults of all ages. The main threat to most roller sports equipment users is an impact with the surface and with obstacles which may cause physical injuries. Wrist, palm, knee and elbow protectors for users of roller sports equipment are intended to protect the wearer against abrasion, bruises and fractures. Protectors will not necessarily prevent all injuries in roller sports accidents.

ranges of body mass as follows: a) range A: Users of up to 25 kg body mass; b) range B: Users of body mass more than 25 kg to 50 kg; c) range C: Users of body mass above 50 kg. Combined protectors such as palm and wrist protectors shall meet the requirements for each protector. 5.2 Ergonomics Protectors shall be so designed and manufactured that in the foreseeable conditions of use for which they are intended the user can perform the roller sports normally and unhindered whilst enjoying protection at the specified limit. 5.3 Innocuousness Protectors shall be safe to use and fit for their purpose. They shall be designed and manufactured to provide protection when used according to the manufacturer’s instructions, without endangering the user or others. There shall not be hard or sharp edges, seams, buckles or other items on the surfaces of the products that could harm the user or others during normal use. Examination shall be made according to 6.3. Construction materials and incorporated substances, shall not harm those coming into contact with them. The manufacturer shall list in the information supplied with the protectors the main composition of the protectors and shall label any protector containing substances or preparations generally known to be hazardous. Information about determining the chemical innocuousness of protectors is given in annex A. SIST EN 14120:2003+A1:2007

The size shall be designated by the range of body mass of the intended users, see 5.1. 5.5 Restraint Protectors shall not be easily displaced from the areas they are designed to protect during normal movements and when subjected to impacts. When tested in accordance with 6.4 the central point of a protector shall not move more than the appropriate value in Table 1.

Testing in accordance with 6.1. 6 Testing 6.1 General If no specific methods are specified compliance with the requirements of this European Standard shall be examined by measurement, visual inspection and tactile examination. For the tests new protectors shall be used. Measuring instruments unless otherwise specified shall be accurate to ± 2 % of the pass/fail level of the characteristic being measured. For each of the required sequences of measurements performed in accordance with this standard a corresponding estimate of the uncertainty of the final result shall be determined. The uncertainty of measurement shall be expressed in the form ± X. It shall be used in determining whether a “Pass” performance has been achieved. If the final result minus X is below the pass level when the requirement that a certain value shall be exceeded, the sample shall be deemed to have failed. NOTE It is anticipated that values of uncertainty of measurement will be usually between 2 % and 5 % of the measured value for force and length measurements. SIST EN 14120:2003+A1:2007
