Playground equipment and surfacing - Part 3: Additional specific safety requirements and test methods for slides

This European Standard specifies additional safety requirements for slides intended for permanent installation for use by children. The aim is to provide protection to the user against possible hazards during use. Where the main play function is not sliding, the relevant requirements in this part of EN 1176 may be used, as appropriate.
This document is not applicable to waterslides, rollerways or slide installations where auxiliary equipment such as mats or sledges are used. This document is not applicable to inclined surfaces that do not contain and guide the user, e.g. banister rails (inclined parallel bars).

Spielplatzgeräte und Spielplatzböden - Teil 3: Zusätzliche besondere sicherheitstechnische Anforderungen und Prüfverfahren für Rutschen

Diese Europäische Norm legt zusätzliche sicherheitstechnische Anforderungen an Rutschen fest, die dauerhaft installiert für die Benutzung durch Kinder vorgesehen sind. Das Ziel ist, dem Nutzer Schutz gegen mögliche Gefährdungen bei der Nutzung des Gerätes zu bieten. Sofern die Hauptspielfunktion nicht Rutschen ist, dürfen die entsprechenden Anforderungen in diesem Teil der EN 1176, soweit zutreffend, angewendet werden.
Dieses Dokument gilt nicht für Wasserrutschen, Rollenbahnen oder Rutschanlagen, die mit Hilfsgeräten, wie z. B. Matten oder Schlitten, benutzt werden. Dieses Dokument gilt nicht für geneigte Flächen, die den Benutzer nicht umschließen und führen, z. B. Treppengeländer (geneigte parallele Stangen).

Équipement et sols d'aires de jeux - Partie 3: Exigences de sécurité et méthodes d'essai complémentaires spécifiques aux toboggans

La présente Norme européenne spécifie les exigences de sécurité complémentaires pour les toboggans destinés à être installés de façon permanente et utilisés par des enfants. L’objectif est de fournir à l’utilisateur une protection contre les éventuels dangers pendant l’utilisation. Lorsque la principale fonction de jeu n’est pas la glissade, les exigences appropriées définies dans cette partie de l’EN 1176 peuvent être utilisées, selon le cas.
Le présent document ne s’applique pas aux toboggans aquatiques, aux pistes de patins à roulettes ni aux installations à toboggans nécessitant l’utilisation d’équipements auxiliaires, comme par exemple des tapis ou des luges. Le présent document n’est pas applicable aux surfaces inclinées qui ne contiennent pas et ne guident pas l’utilisateur, comme par exemple les rampes de glisse (barres parallèles inclinées).

This document is not applicable to inclined surfaces that do not contain and guide the user, e.g. banister rails (inclined parallel bars). 2 Normative references The following documents, in whole or in part, are normatively referenced in this document and are indispensable for its application. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any amendments) applies.

In the case of embankment slides, access to the starting section may be gained directly from the mound. For free-standing slides, the maximum vertical height that the first stairs can reach without a change in direction or offset, by a minimum width of the means of access, shall be 2 500 mm. SIST EN 1176-3:2018

EN 1176-3:2017 (E) 7 Where the starting section of a slide is easily accessible the free height of fall (h) shall be 1 000 mm maximum unless guarding is provided (see 4.3.2). For all attachment slides with a fall height greater than 1 000 mm, a rail or crossbar across the access opening shall be provided (see Figure 1a)). The rail or crossbar shall be positioned between the platform guard rail or barrier and the start of the sliding section. The height of the rail or crossbar shall be between 600 mm and 900 mm above the starting section. For attachment slides with a starting section or barrier beyond the edge of the platform, the area of the starting section between the rail or crossbar and the platform shall comply with the same requirements as platforms in EN 1176-1. NOTE Such requirements include the height of guard rail or barrier. SIST EN 1176-3:2018
