Playground equipment

The working group NA 112-07-01 AA "Playground equipment" of the national Sports Equipment Standards Committee is responsible for the standardisation of playground equipment and surfacing for children. The scope comprises playground equipment which is destined for the use in schools, day-care centres, public playgrounds, restaurants, malls and similar publicly available places. In addition to the general safety requirements, extra safety requirements have been defined for the following special playground equipment: swings, slides, cableways, carousels and rocking equipment. Current projects are dealing with fully enclosed playground equipment and spatial networks. Important aspects of the standardisation of playground equipment are safety related specifications e.g. test methods, marking, guidance on installation, inspection, maintenance and operation. The safety related standards are listed in the Directory 2 of GPSG (law for safety of equipment and products). The Sports Equipment Standards Committee also holds the secretariat of the European working group CEN/TC 136/SC1/WG11 "Climbing equipment" and assigns its convenor. Additionally, delegates of this committee represent the German standardisation interests in further working groups on European level.
