As standard, the playground equipment is installed on underground foundations. Alternatively, the equipment can be surface mounted. Please specify when placing your order if you wish to opt for surface mounting. Playground equipment and other items must be permanently fixed to the ground. Some equipment can be fixed to the ground using anchoring parts that must be ordered separately. The traditional use of concrete foundations is only required in certain cases. Details of specific foundations are given within the installation instructions.
According to the EN standards, playground equipment must
be assembled on a surface the critical fall height of which
corresponds to the fall height of the equipment. If loose
materials, such as sand with a grain size of 0.2–2 mm or gravel
with a grain size of 2–8 mm, are used, the required layer
thickness varies between 25 and 40 cm. Safety tiles, which are
made of bonded rubber shred, present an easy-to-clean option
for a safe floor material. Elements can be assembled on top of
grass, as long as their critical fall height does not exceed 1 m.
In addition to the shock absorbing base shown in the
drawings, the safety sphere extends to at least 150 cm around
all parts of the product upon which users can climb. Different
countries may have different regulations regarding this space.
Most countries prohibit allowing sharp and hard objects in this
area, such as cut stones or rough tree stumps.
More detailed information on safe floor materials will be supplied
with the assembly instructions.
Commissioning of the Playground
Before using the play area, a handover inspection should be performed. The handover inspection, log book and assembly instructions accompanying the order confirmation or delivery are provided to facilitate the inspection into the safety of the play area and to ensure that the facility has been correctly installed. Please remember that the play area should not be used until the site has been cleared and the playground declared safe!
