Over deze norm
This standard presents dimensions for access openings that ensure the best compromise between the need for free space for movement and the compactness of equipment and installations machinery. It describes how anthropometric data (plus certain allowances) determine the minimum dimensions of access openings for different body positions. It includes dimensions as specified in Part 3. Dimensions for access openings are based on the values for the 95th percentile whereas reach distances are based on the values for the 5th percentile, in each case the least favourable body dimension of the adult population of the expected user population being used as a basis. The same considerations apply to the location of access openings. The anthropometric data used as a basis originate from static measurements of nude persons. In other words: The data specified do not take into account body movements, clothing and equipment nor machinery specific conditions (operating conditions) nor environmental conditions. The dimensions given in this standard ensure access for the user population. Where it is necessary to prevent people reaching to a hazard, other standards shall be used.
