Standard for Fog Equipment Manuals Approved
On May 8, 2001, the Board of Standards Review of the American National Standards Institute approved ESTA's "Entertainment Technology - Recommendations for Inclusions in Fog Equipment Manuals."
This standard now becomes ANSI E1.14-2001, and is the third ESTA project approved as an American National Standard in 2001.
The ANSI E1.14 project was started by a group of fog equipment dealers who were unhappy with the amount and quality of the information found in the manuals of some of the equipment they handle. The equipment manual is the primary document for telling the end-user how to use the equipment safely and effectively, but some of the fog machine manuals said very little beyond "Fill with fluid. Plug in. Make fog." The approved standard lists the information that should be included in fog equipment manuals to ensure that the user has enough information to use the equipment properly.
