Play Area Recommendations
All Aarons Educational Play Equipment meet standards, but the following recommendations when designing your play are should be considered.
Safe Fall Zones / Impact Areas
For any fall heights over 600mm, a 1500mm clearance zone is required from all points of equipment. Keeping the children in mind, Aarons recommend this clearance at all times. In addition, a 2000mm clearance is required from any slide exit.
For play equipment which causes a forced movement, i.e. swings and slide, or around any equipment with a fall height over 600mm, attenuating surfacing over the entire impact area is required. A minimum of 250mm of compacted loose fill is recommended. Loose fill material (soft fall and sand) must have an impact absorbing certificate.
All rubber surfacing will have an Impact Attenuating Rating which will determine the thickness of rubber required, based on the fall height. It is recommended that loose fill or synthetic grass is installed on top of rubber surfaces where forced movement is present.
Accessibility for Adults
Adults must be able to gain access to assist children using the equipment. Enclosed parts of equipment with an internal distance of more than 2000mm must have at least two access openings.
Have Fun in the Sun
Sun shades or roofing are important to minimise the harmful effects of UV exposure to children, but also reduce the potential of severe burns from exposed hot surfaces.
Preparation of the Site
With the exception of Swing Frames, all Aarons Educational Play Equipment is freestanding. This allows for the equipment to be moved when required and to make installation that bit easier. However, surfacing must be considered prior to installation. For cemented products, organise to have surfacing laid after installation.
