What exactly ARE the safety requirements for a face shield (mask)
Posted 09 October 2008 - 03:27 PM
someone posted on one of my other threads about mask safety and I got to thinking; what exactly are the safety requirements for masks? When I mean exactly, I mean, "it must sustain up to Xfps", and not, "it needs to meet osc standards".

Did a bit of googling, and found this ANSI STANDARDS
Also ran across this over at ATSM. Paintball masks specs
If you search for paintball on their site, they have all kinds of stuff.

and you would never be allowed onto a legit field. 98% of fields have rules against modding your mask at all, or letting you wear a modified mask. Insurance regulations. To build one on your own and tell them it's ok to use... No offense, but they will laugh in your face and hand you a rental mask.
Even if it can take 8600 lbs, they have no proof of that other than your word, and it isn't ATSM approved. So their insurance wouldn't cover them if they let you play and you got injured, which would then end that field's life in a giant lawsuit brought on by your parents.
