Toy safety standard EN71 test commonly used in Europe

To ensure the safety of products, different regions have developed a safety standards for the production of the different stages of rigorous testing and production process control, in which European standards should be considered a relatively wide range of applications. Any of the products to Europe, they always have to go through rigorous testing EN71 standard for toys is no exception. One of the most commonly used is Torque & Tension, Drop Test, Impact Test, compression Test.

First, the torque - tension test (orque & tension)

Torque test equipment required: stopwatch, torque meter, torque clamp (two kinds, depending on the model chosen for the tool)

5 seconds on the internal components to exert a clockwise torque, torque to 180 degrees or 0.34Nm, 10 seconds

Then the parts back to the relaxed state

Repeat the process of counter-clockwise

Less than equal to 6mm, the applied force of 50N +2 N

If the parts is greater than the maximum outstanding size 6mm, then applied 90N +2 N force.

5 seconds on the pounds for 10 seconds

Criterion

Is too small to sit up independently designed children's toys can not have cracks cracks. If the crack does not cause significant harm, it is acceptable. 3 years of age to play with toys, children can not produce small parts, sharp points can contact, sharp edges. Masks and helmets can not have exposed sharp points, sharp edges, or loose material can enter the eye. Mouth moving toys and water toys have small parts of the valve can not.

Second, the drop test (Drop Test)

Instrumentation devices: EN floor

Test steps:

The toys to the most stringent in the direction from 85cm +5 cm height drop to the floor five times EN.

Criteria:

Is too small to sit up independently of the outer surface of toys designed for children can not have a crack crack. If the crack does not cause significant harm, it is acceptable. 3 years of age to play with toys, children can not produce small parts, sharp points or can contact sharp edges. Masks and helmets can not have exposed sharp points, sharp edges, or loose material can enter the eye. Become accessible drive mechanism can not have harmful.

Third, the impact test (mpact Test)

Apparatus:

Diameter of 80mm +2 mm, weight 1kg. +0.02 Kg. Steel weight

Test steps: toys to the location of the most easily damaged steel placed on a horizontal plane, with the weight from the free-fall drop height of 100mm +2 mm toy once.

Criteria:

Is too small to sit up independently of the outer surface of toys designed for children can not have a crack crack. If the crack does not cause significant harm, it is acceptable. 3 years of age to play with toys, children can not produce small parts, sharp points or can contact sharp edges. Masks and helmets can not have exposed sharp points, sharp edges, or loose material can enter the eye. Become accessible drive mechanism can not have harmful.

Fourth, the stress test (Compression Test)

Test steps:

The level of the toys placed on the rigid plane, and make toys in the upper part being tested.

Diameter of 30mm +1.5 mm by rigid metal pressure head applied to the measured area of ​​the pressure 110N +5 N, 5 seconds on the pounds for 10 seconds.

Instrument image criteria:

Surface can not be too small to sit for the independent children's toys designed to crack the outer surface can not have cracks. If the crack does not cause significant harm, it is acceptable. 3 years of age to play with toys, children can not produce small parts, sharp points or can contact sharp edges.

Masks and helmets can not have exposed sharp points, sharp edges, or loose material can enter the eye.
