ASTM F1292 PDF

A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. A superscript epsilon E indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval. Severe head injuries are the most frequently implicated cause of death in playground equipment-related falls. Use of appropriate impact-attenuating surfacing materials in the use zone of playground equipment can reduce the risk of fall-related injury. In particular, it is believed that the risk of life-threatening head injuries is reduced when appropriate surfacing materials are installed.

A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. A superscript epsilon E indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval. Severe head injuries are the most frequently implicated cause of death in playground equipment-related falls. Use of appropriate impact-attenuating surfacing materials in the use zone of playground equipment can reduce the risk of fall-related injury.

In particular, it is believed that the risk of life-threatening head injuries is reduced when appropriate surfacing materials are installed. G-max is the measure of the maximum acceleration shock produced by an impact. The Head Injury Criterion or HIC score is an empirical measure of impact severity based on published research describing the relationship between the magnitude and duration of impact accelerations and the risk of head trauma. The standard includes procedures allowing surfacing materials to be performance-rated before installation and for installed surfacing materials to be tested for conformance with the specification.

The purpose of this specification is to reduce the frequency and severity of fall-related head injuries to children by establishing a uniform and reliable means of comparing and specifying the impact attenuation of playground surfaces. Its use will give designers, manufacturers, installers, prospective purchasers, owners, and operators of playgrounds a means of objectively assessing the performance of surfacing materials under and around playground equipment and hence of evaluating the associated injury risk.

Scope 1. Current edition approved Jan. Published January Originally approved in Last previous edition approved in as F - The laboratory test is mandatory for surfaces to conform to the requirements of this specifica- tion.

There is only limited evidence that conformance with the requirements of this specification reduces the risk of other kinds of serious injury for example, long bone fractures.

NOTE I-The relative risk of fatality and of different degrees of head injury may be estimated using the information in Appendix Xl, which shows the relationships between the Head Injury Criterion HIC scores of an impact and the probability of head injury. While it is believed that conformance with the requirements of this specification will reduce the risk of serious injury and death from falls, adherence to this specification will not prevent all injuries and deaths.

The SI units given in parentheses are for information only. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appro- priate safety and health practices and determine the applica- bility of regulatory requirements prior to use. Referenced Documents 2.

IPEMA offers great benefits like the certification programs, market sales benchmarking and the educational safety academy series, but its greatest benefit is the forum it provides for uniting play practitioners and promoting the importance of play. The IPEMA member companies may be competitors in the sales arena, but their representatives to the organization share my passion for play and we are united in the effort to have a positive impact on child development through play. The IPEMA education and certification programs greatly assist communities to create safe playgrounds for children. The membership is beneficial because of the industry information and resources available. IPEMA Certification is very valuable to our business, creating credibility for our products and company in the market. They are always quick to respond, thorough and professional!

More F G-max is the measure of the maximum acceleration shock produced by an impact. The Head Injury Criterion or HIC score is an empirical measure of impact severity based on published research describing the relationship between the magnitude and duration of impact accelerations and the risk of head trauma.. Two test methods shall be used to determine the impact attenuation of a playground surface or surfacing materials: critical fall height test, and installed surface performance test.
