Spielplatzgeräte und Spielplatzböden - Teil 7: Anleitung für Installation, Inspektion, Wartung und Betrieb

Dieses Dokument ist anwendbar auf Spielplatzgeräte, Spielplatzböden und Zusatzausstattung wie etwa Tore, Zäune, Bänke, Eimer, Blenden usw. Es ist zur Anwendung durch Spielplatzbetreiber (siehe Begriffe 3.4) vorgesehen und soll dabei helfen, ein System für die Inspektion und Wartung für jeden Spielplatz zu erarbeiten.
ANMERKUNG 1   Der Umfang der Inspektionen und die Einbeziehung von Zusatzausstattung sind für die einzelnen Länder verschieden.
ANMERKUNG 2   Zusatzausstattung ist nicht in den Teilen für den besonderen Gerätetyp der Normenreihe EN 1176 enthalten; daher wird sie nicht auf Übereinstimmung mit der Normenreihe EN 1176 bewertet und wird einer Risikobewertung unterzogen.
Dieses Dokument gibt eine Anleitung für die Installation, Inspektion, Wartung und den Betrieb von Spielplatzgeräten und Spielplatzböden um die Geräte herum.

Équipements et sols d’aires de jeux - Partie 7 : Recommandations relatives à l’installation, au contrôle, à la maintenance et à l’utilisation

Le présent document s’applique aux équipements, sols et accessoires d’aires de jeux, par exemple portails, clôtures, bancs, poubelles, voiles d’ombrage, etc. Il est destiné à être utilisé par les exploitants d’aires de jeux (voir définition 3.4) pour les assister dans l’élaboration d’un programme de contrôle et de maintenance propre à chaque aire de jeux.
Note 1   La portée du contrôle et l’inclusion des accessoires varient en fonction de chaque cas.
Note 2   Les accessoires ne sont pas inclus dans les parties spécifiques aux équipements de la série EN 1176 ; leur conformité n’est donc pas évaluée au regard de la série EN 1176 et ils font l’objet d’une évaluation du risque.

European foreword

This document (EN 1176-7:2020) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 136 “Sports,

playground and other recreational facilities and equipment”, the secretariat of which is held by DIN.

This European Standard shall be given the status of a national standard, either by publication of an

identical text or by endorsement, at the latest by October 2020, and conflicting national standards shall

be withdrawn at the latest by October 2020.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. CEN shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

This document supersedes EN 1176-7:2008.
EN 1176, Playground equipment and surfacing, consists of the following parts:
— Part 1: General safety requirements and test methods
— Part 2: Additional specific safety requirements and test methods for swings
— Part 3: Additional specific safety requirements and test methods for slides
— Part 4: Additional specific safety requirements and test methods for cableways
— Part 5: Additional specific safety requirements and test methods for carousels

— Part 6: Additional specific safety requirements and test methods for rocking equipment

— Part 7: Guidance on installation, inspection, maintenance and operation

— Part 10: Additional specific safety requirements and test methods for fully enclosed play equipment

— Part 11: Additional specific safety requirements and test methods for spatial network

This part should be read in conjunction with EN 1176 (all parts) and EN 1177, Impact attenuating

playground surfacing — Methods of test for determination of impact attenuation.

The following European Standards and Technical Reports and others might also apply:

— EN 14960 (all parts), Inflatable play equipment — Safety requirements and test methods

— EN 14974, Skateparks — Safety requirements and test methods

— EN 15312, Free access multi-sports equipment — Requirements, including safety and test methods

inspectors

For requirements on the maintenance of fully enclosed play equipment, see EN 1176-10, Playground

equipment and surfacing — Part 10: Additional specific safety requirements and test methods for fully

enclosed play equipment.

The principal change from the previous edition of EN 1176-7 is that the guidance given in this part of

EN 1176 has been updated in the light of experience of use of EN 1176-7:2008, for example by referring

to other parts of EN 1176 when carrying out an inspection. This resulted in the following changes:

a) wording aligned with EN 1176-1;
b) recommendations mostly transformed into requirements;
c) inspection and maintenance revised split and into separate sections;

d) other CEN documents added to the European Foreword to show relation with this standard to the

reader;
terms and definitions updated.

According to the CEN-CENELEC Internal Regulations, the national standards organisations of the

following countries are bound to implement this European Standard: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria,

Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland,

Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Republic of
