The first two digits of the approval number indicate that the Regulation already contained the 07 series of amendments at the time of approval. 6.8.1.2.2. The second digit is a capital letter which designates the location of the seating position in a row, as viewed in the direction of forward motion of the vehicle; the following letters shall be used: 2. A line through the "H" point sight buttons shall be parallel to the ground and perpendicular to the longitudinal centre plane of the seat. The surfaces of the rear parts of seats to be checked are those situated in the areas defined below which can be contacted by a 165 mm diameter sphere when the seat is mounted in the vehicle. For the purposes of clause 3.1 a "new model" is a vehicle model first. In the case of bench seats without head restraints, this area shall extend between the longitudinal vertical planes situated at 100 mm on either side of the longitudinal median plane of each designated outboard seating position defined by the manufacturer and above a plane perpendicular to the reference line 100 mm below the top of the seat‑back. It shall reach the obstacle on a course perpendicular to the collision wall; the maximum lateral misalignment allowed between the vertical median line of the front of the vehicle and the vertical median line of the collision wall shall be " 30 cm; at the moment of impact the vehicle shall no longer be subjected to the action of any additional steering or propelling device. Section A-A is to be made in a point of the gap area which allows the maximum sphere intrusion, without exerting any load. Annex 6 - Test procedure for checking energy dissipation . The function of this vehicle standard is to specify requirements for seats, their attachment assemblies, their installation and any head restraint fitted, to minimise the possibility of occupant injury due to forces acting on the seat as a result of vehicle impact. 17 under the approval number 072439. If you have a kitchen bench height of 105cm, then stools which are 75cm high are perfect for you. What does this mean for you? 4.4.3. Equivalent procedures (see paragraph 6.9. of this Regulation). The recording instruments used shall be such that measurements can be made with the following degrees of accuracy: frequency class of data channel:  class 600 corresponding to ISO Standard 6487 (1980); cross‑axis sensitivity =  < 5 % of the lowest point on the scale. The test conditions of paragraph 6.3.1. shall be considered to be satisfied if, at the request of the manufacturer, they are replaced by a collision test of the complete vehicle in running order against a rigid barrier as laid down in paragraph 2. of annex 7 to this Regulation. Attach the foot and lower leg assemblies to the seat pan assembly, either individually or by using the T‑bar and lower leg assembly. 6.3.1. 5.1.4. Reposition the 3‑D H machine on the seat by one of the following methods: 4.9.1. The front and rear zones are respectively bounded by the horizontal plane tangential to the top of the head restraint as determined in paragraph 6.5. of this Regulation. As from the official date of entry into force of the 07 series of amendments, no Contracting Party applying this Regulation shall refuse to grant ECE approvals under this Regulation as amended by the 07 series of amendments. Vehicles certified to ADR 3/04 or a later version need not comply with this rule. 6.4.3.6. 2.1. 3. Locking systems for armrests or other comfort devices are not necessary unless the presence of such devices will cause additional risk of injury to the occupants of a vehicle in the event of a collision. The application for approval of a vehicle type shall be submitted by the vehicle manufacturer or by his duly accredited representative. At the moment of impact the vehicle shall run free. The requirements of Appendix A clause 6.2 must be met, except that instead of “longitudinally and rearwards to the upper part of the seat-back frame through a component simulating the back of the manikin shown in (Appendix A) annex 3”, a force producing a moment of 53 daNm in relation to the R point may be applied directly to the upper cross member of the seat-back in a rearward longitudinal direction either: 6.3.1.                              horizontally; or. This will give you 25cm of space between your legs and the height of the bench which is usually a good amount of room. Both these options give adequate space between your legs and knees, and the height of the bench to ensure you dont bump your knees. Annex 7 - Method for testing the strength of seat anchorages and their adjustment, locking and displacement systems . = clause renumbered. Hence, it is easy to use the toilet. It shall be accompanied by the following documents in triplicate and the following particulars: 3.2.1.     a detailed description of the vehicle type with regard to the design of the seats, their anchorages, and their adjustment, displacement and locking systems; 3.2.1.1. LEP & LEG category vehicles must comply with M1 and N1 category vehicle requirements respectively. 5.10. If the "H" point or the actual torso angle does not satisfy the requirements of paragraph 3.2.2. above, the "H" point and the actual torso angle shall be determined twice more (three times in all). Reason(s) of extension (if applicable)  .................................. 17. only one "H" point and one "actual torso angle" shall be determined for each row of seats, the 3-D H machine described in appendix 1 to this annex being seated in a place regarded as representative for the row. For suspension seats, the vertical position shall be rigidly fixed corresponding to a normal driving position as specified by the manufacturer. "Folding seat" means an auxiliary seat intended for occasional use and normally folded; 2.10. The back and seat pans are constructed of reinforced plastic and metal; they stimulate the human torso and thigh and are mechanically hinged at the "H" point. If the vehicle submitted for approval pursuant to this Regulation meets the relevant requirements (seats fitted with head restraints or capable of being fitted with head restraints), approval of the vehicle type shall be granted. At the request of the manufacturer the test pulse described in annex 9 - appendix, may be used alternatively. Check the lateral spirit level for zero position; if necessary, apply a lateral load to the top of the back pan sufficient to level the 3‑D H machine's seat pan on the seat. Frame: Mild steel Battens: Australian Hardwood Timber | Enviroslat Recycled Battens. When each foot is placed back in the down position, the heel is to be in contact with the structure designed for this. 6. The seats to be tested shall be mounted on the vehicle body for which they are designed. DETERMINATION OF THE HEIGHT AND WIDTH OF HEAD RESTRAINTS, Details of lines and measurements taken during tests, 2a. 12. 6.3.2.                              normal to the seat back. Vehicles subject to the requirements of this standard that are fitted with seats must comply with the requirements of Appendix A, except as varied by Section 6 Exemptions and Alternative Procedures. Where the head restraint is separate, it shall be secured to the part of the vehicle structure to which it is normally attached. The barrier of reinforced concrete and earth may be replaced by obstacles having the same front surface, provided that they give equivalent results. PROCEDURE FOR DETERMINING THE "H" POINT AND THE ACTUAL, TORSO ANGLE FOR SEATING POSITIONS IN MOTOR VEHICLES, The procedure described in this annex is used to establish the "H" point location and the actual torso angle for one or several seating positions in a motor vehicle and to verify the relationship of measured data to design specifications given by the vehicle manufacturer. Determination of the height of the head restraint. 17 included the 07 series of amendments but Regulation No. Figure 2:  Testing of a partitioning system above the backrest. ), annex 7 (document TRANS/WP.29/78/Rev.1/Amend.2). The approval mark shall be clearly legible and be indelible. This vehicle body shall be firmly anchored on a test trolley as prescribed in the following paragraphs. 4.4.2.     the number of this Regulation, followed by the letter "R", a dash and the approval number, to the right of the circle prescribed in paragraph 4.4.1. In the case of head restraints adjustable for height one or more gaps, which regardless of their shape can show a distance "a" of more than 60 mm when measured as described in paragraph 6.7. below, are permitted on the part of the device serving as a head restraint provided that, after the additional test under paragraph 6.4.3.3.2. below, the requirements of paragraph 5.11. below are still met. For each seating position where reference data are required in order to demonstrate compliance with the provisions of the present Regulation, all or an appropriate selection of the following data shall be presented in the form indicated in appendix 3 to this annex: 3.1.1.     the co‑ordinates of the "R" point relative to the three‑dimensional reference system; 3.1.3.     all indications necessary to adjust the seat (if it is adjustable) to the measuring position set out in paragraph 4.3. below. 6.8.1.1.1.
