Complying with International Safety Standards

It is essential to ensure that the indoor playground equipment you purchase is of high quality and complies with safety standards set for indoor playgrounds. At Zhenghan Playground, we prioritize product safety and quality above all. We manufacture equipment using only the highest quality materials to ensure that we meet or exceed all the safety standards set for indoor playgrounds in North America and Europe. Our standards include TUV, GS-EN1176, and CE for Europe and ASTM, CPSIA, UL94, and NFPA701 for North America.

With many years of experience in the playground industry, Zhenghan Playground is a professional company that designs and manufactures safe indoor parks, including indoor playgrounds, trampoline parks, and ninja warrior courses. Below are the standards that we follow:

(1) ASTM F1918 for North America

ASTM 1918 is the Standard Safety Performance Specification for Soft Contained Play Equipment. ASTM is an international standard organization that develops and publishes voluntary consensus technical standards for a wide range of materials, products, systems, and services. Zhenghan Playground has been designing, manufacturing, and installing indoor playgrounds that comply with the ASTM F1918 (Standard Safety Performance Specification for Soft-Contained Play Equipment). Zhenghan Playground can meet the local safety standards and pass the safety inspections in North America.

(2) CPSIA for North America

The Consumer Products Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) of 2008 is a United States law signed on August 14, 2008, by President George Bush. The legislative bill was known as HR4040, sponsored by Congressman Bobby Rush. It was approved by both the United States House of Representatives and Senate. Laws for kids' safety are very strict in the USA. To meet the safety law requirements and high-quality safety standards, Zhenghan Playground indoor playgrounds are specifically designed, manufactured, and installed in compliance with those laws and standards in every aspect.

(3) NFPA 701 for North America

NFPA has various standards depending on how the fabric will be used. In the case of draperies, curtains, and similar hanging textiles, the standard that applies is NFPA 701: Standard Methods of Fire Tests for Flame Propagation of Textiles and Films. This test measures the flammability of a fabric when it is exposed to specific sources of ignition. All of the materials used for Zhenghan Playground indoor playgrounds comply with the NFPA 701.

(4) UL 94 for North America

UL 94 is the most widely used test for determining a specimen's relative flammability, its ability to extinguish the flame after ignition, and its dripping behavior. UL94 covers two types of testing: vertical burn and horizontal burn. The Standard for Safety of Flammability of Plastic Materials for Part in Devices and Appliance Testing is a plastic flammability standard released by Underwriters Laboratories of the USA. The standard classifies plastics according to how they burn in various orientations and ranks their thicknesses from lowest (least flame-retardant) to highest (most flame-retardant). Zhenghan Playground indoor playgrounds can also meet the requirements and standards of the UL 94.

(5) EN 1176 for Europe

The European Standards for Playground Equipment: EN 1176 and EN 1177 have been published to harmonize existing European standards. The EN1176 including EN1176-10, EN1176-1, and EN1176-3 is a European safety standard made for both indoor playgrounds and outdoor playgrounds. Zhenghan Playground has been in business with many customers from European countries for many years. Zhenghan Playground indoor playgrounds can meet the EN1176 standards to pass the inspections by local safety authorities.

(6) EN 71 for Europe

European standard EN 71 specifies safety requirements for toys. Compliance with the standard is legally required for all toys sold in the European Union. The standard has been published in 13 parts from EN 71-1 to EN 71-13. EN71 is another safety standard widely implemented in Europe and Zhenghan Playground indoor playgrounds can meet this standard.

(7) CE for Europe

CE Marking is the symbol as shown on the top of this page. The letters "CE" are the abbreviation of the French phrase "Conformité Européene" which means "European Conformity". The term initially used was "EC Mark" and it was officially replaced by "CE Marking" in Directive 93/68/EEC in 1993. "CE Marking" is now used in all EU official documents. CE is a very important safety standard in Europe, all indoor playgrounds should meet the CE standard if enter the European market. As a professional indoor park exporter, we have long-term cooperation with our European customers.

(8) EU REACH Regulation (EC) for Europe

REACH is a European Community (EC) safety regulation that deals with the registration, evaluation, authorization, and restriction of chemical substances. EU REACH Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 is a safety certification for Non-Phthalates in Toys and Childcare Article.

(9) AS3533.4.2-2013 for Australia

The AS3533.4.2-2013 is a playground safety standard that is made specifically for indoor playgrounds. Our indoor playgrounds comply with Australian safety standards, especially for our Australian customers. As testing for the Australian standards cannot be done outside of Australia, we are unable to get our products tested for this standard. We strictly ensure to follow the standards in the AS 3533.4.2-2013 document in our designing, manufacturing, and installation process.

(10) CSA Z614-07(R2012) for Canada

Canadian Standards Association (operating as "CSA Group") develops standards through a consensus standards development process approved by the Standards Council of Canada. This CSA Z614-07(R2012) Standard provides requirements for public-use playspaces and play equipment intended for use by children aged 18 months to 12 years with anthropometric limits based on the 95th percentile. This is the safety standard that is commonly referred to by our Canadian customers. Thus, Zhenghan Playground indoor playgrounds are fully in compliance with this standard.

(11) ISO for worldwide

ISO, the International Organization for Standardization, is an independent, non-governmental international organization with a membership of 161 national standards bodies. International Standards make things work. They give world-class specifications for products, services, and systems, to ensure quality, safety, and efficiency. They are instrumental in facilitating international trade. The ISO standard is one of the most implemented international safety standards as almost every country accepts it. Zhenghan Playground indoor playgrounds also meet the requirements of ISO standards in every aspect.
