This document is applicable to playground equipment, surfacing and ancillary items, e.g. gates, fences, benches, bins, shades, etc. It is intended for use by playground operators (see definitions 3.4) to assist them in developing an inspection and maintenance regime for each playground.
Note 1 The scope of the inspection and inclusion of the ancillary items will vary individually.
Note 2 Ancillary items are not included in the specific equipment-type parts of the EN 1176 series; hence they are not assessed for compliance with EN 1176 series and are subject to risk assessment.
This document establishes guidance on the installation, inspection, maintenance and operation of playground equipment and surfacing around the equipment.
