When choosing a manufacturer, it is essential to ensure that your indoor playground equipment that you will purchase is of the highest quality as well as in compliance with the safety standards set for indoor playgrounds. The safety of the playground users are of the top priority for any indoor playground owners. Indoor playgrounds that do not meet the required safety standards can be a hazard to the children playing on them. Indoor Playgrounds International in conjunction with Funlandia Playground’s only manufacturers indoor playgrounds that are in compliance with the International Safety Standards.
Indoor Playground International’s indoor playgrounds are designed and manufactured in compliance with the world’s most comprehensive safety standards that are specifically developed for ‘Soft Contained Play Equipment’. By complying with these standards, we can minimize the injury hazards in the indoor playground and make sure that it will pass safety inspections in any country, mandatory or voluntary.
It takes many years of experience in this industry to be able to understand these safety standards along with great investment in both resources and efforts in order to truly implement and incorporate them correctly in the design and distributing process. Below are the standards that we follow:
1) ASTM F1918-12 of USA
The ASTM F1918-12 is the first safety standard that was made specifically for indoor playgrounds and is used as one of the most authorized indoor playground safety standards in the world.
The materials used in our indoor playgrounds have been tested and certified to the anti-toxic and fire retardant standards set by the ASTM 1918-12 document.
We have been designing, distributing, and installing indoor playgrounds and equipment that complies with ASTM standard for years. All the playgrounds we have installed in North America have passed the safety inspections, health inspections, and fire inspections required and are running safely and successfully.
2) EN 1176 of Europe
The EN 1176 is a safety standard made in Europe for both indoor and outdoor playgrounds. It might not be as specialized as the ASTM1918-12 for indoor playgrounds, but it is also used and referred as one of the main international standards for indoor playgrounds.
The materials used in our indoor playgrounds have been tested and certified to the EN1176 standard. All playgrounds we built in Europe have past the inspections by their local safety authorities, including the safety inspection in Holland and Norway, which are known as the most strict playground inspections among all European countries.
3) AS 3533.4.2-2013 of Australia
The AS3533.4.2-2013 is another playground safety standard that is made specifically for indoor playgrounds. We also make sure that our indoor playgrounds are in compliance with the Australia safety standards especially for the customers who are in Australia.
As, testing for the Australian standards cannot be done outside of Australia, we are unable to get our products tested for this standard, however, we do make sure to follow the AS 3533.4.2-2013 document which we have procured when designing, distributing and installing the playground.
4) CSA Z614-07(R2012) of Canada
The CSA Z614-07(R2012) is a safety standard made by Canada for indoor and outdoor playgrounds. This is the safety standard that is used by the customers in Canada and thus we do make sure that our indoor playgrounds are also in compliance with this standard.
The safety standards above are the international safety standards that we have researched and followed strictly in our designing, distributing and installation process. We already have the test reports and certifications we have done for our products which have proven that we work with China’s most professional indoor playground manufacturer.
Should you request it, we can provide the test results of the testing we have done. There are some factors that you should consider when reading this test reports from the different manufacturers.
Test Laboratories used for the Testing and Certification
All of the testing of Funlandia’s materials and indoor playground products are done by SGS S.A. which is the world’s biggest and most reputable testing laboratory. The testing standards that we use for our products are the standards that are used for indoor playgrounds. Some other companies would also provide their customer with the test reports, but their tests maybe have been done on an outdoor playgrounds, which uses completely different materials and follow very different test standards.
Authenticity of the Reports and Test Reports Contents
Our test reports will show all the tests that have been done. You will also find in the document the contact information of SGS who you can contact directly to check the authenticity of the report by providing them with the testing number listed in the report.
Some of the test reports provided by other Chinese manufacturers would only show that some items have past the tests, and some items have not.
Aside from all of the vigorous testing we have done, the biggest evidence that can verify the safety of our indoor playgrounds are the indoor playgrounds that we have installed all over the world. We have had customers from many different countries including North America and Europe which have some of the strictest international safety standards. In these continents, there are countries whose indoor playgrounds will not be allowed to open unless they have been safety inspected and have passed the safety requirements set.
