If I'm understanding your question correctly the standard allows for a 6" sweep, to which most or all safety fencing manufacturers design and build to.

Actually, the maximum distance is 180mm or 7 inches. This is in accordance with ISO 13857. Slotted openings greater than 180 mm will allow who body access. The latest ANSI B11.19 provides the same requirements for openings as ISO 13857.

180 mm is the standard. Feel free to contact me if you have a specific application in mind that you are developing. 208-589-4615
