When Only the Best Will Do

 EVERPLAY Compliance to Standards and Testing

 

PLAYGROUND Protective Surfacing must meet the performance Standards  ASTM F1292 and CSA Z614 for Critical Height Testing and compliance in the field.

 

EVERPLAY has been actively involved in the development of the ASTM 2479, Standard Guide for Specification, Purchase, Installation and Maintenance of Poured-In-Place Playground Surfaces.  This standard provides owners and specifiers with information when attempting to provide these types of surfaces for their projects.  It also outlines potential problems that can occur with the technology, installation procedures and environmental conditions at the time of the installation.  One of the breakthroughs of this document is the outlining of conditions that should be in any warranty documents to protect the owner and the children into the future.

 

In the coming few months a new performance Standard for the Poured-In-Place surfacing should achieve approval of the ASTM process.  This Standard will require compliance with ASTM F1292 as a fundamental performance, but will also expand performance testing to consider durability, quality of raw materials, and compliance with the accessibility requirements where needed.  There will be test methods and procedures with measurable performance criteria.  This should provide exceptional assurance to owner/operators of surfaces that comply with this standard.

 

EVERPLAY as a participant in the drafting of the new Poured-In-Place performance standard is already complying with its requirements, however when it is published, EVERPLAY will make every effort to submit to the testing and become one the first surfaces to achieve the New Standard's compliance designation.

 

EVERPLAY is proud of its achievements and the test result from Detroit Testing Laboratory, Inc. for compliance to ASTM F1292 confirm the excellence of the system with regard to impact attenuation.

 

Along with compliance to ASTM F1292 at -60, 230 & 490C (240, 720, & 1200F), EVERPLAY is providing the user of this website with field test result that demonstrate that EVERPLAY has the capability to carry the laboratory performance through to the field with ASTM F1292 field testing.

State of the art is not a limit, it is a point of departure
