Make sure the restraint device meets these requirements

You must

  • Make sure the restraining device or barrier can withstand a rim wheel separation that occurs at 150 percent of the maximum tire pressure specified.
  • Make sure the restraining devices and barriers will contain any components that may be thrown out during a wheel separation of any rim wheel.
  • Make sure restraining devices and barriers are visually inspected:
    • - Prior to each day's use
      and
    • - After any separation of the rim wheel components or sudden release of air.
  • Make sure any restraining device or barrier that shows damage is immediately removed from service. Examples of damage include:
    • - Cracks at welds
    • - Cracked or broken components
    • - Bent or sprung components caused by mishandling, abuse, tire explosion or rim wheel separation
    • - Pitting of components due to corrosion
      or
    • - Other structural damage that would decrease its effectiveness.
  • Make sure restraining devices or barriers removed from service aren't used until they are repaired and reinspected.
  • Make sure restraining devices or barriers that need structural repair aren't used until they are certified by either:
    • - The manufacturer
      or
    • - A registered professional engineer.

Note

Note:

  • The certification needs to show that the barrier can withstand a force of 150 percent of the maximum tire pressure in the event of wheel separation.
