Outdoor Gym Equipment In Public Places - Conformity
(as from January 1st 2009) Outdoor gym equipment supplied by Island Recreation conforms to Standards ISO 9001: 2000, AS/NZS 4486.1:1997, AS/NZS 4422:1996 and depending on the item, AS/NZS 4685 - 2004. Standard AS/NZS 4685 – 2004 is a playground equipment standard and does not apply to outdoor gym equipment. Appropriate signage should also be installed on the site by the land owner where outdoor gym equipment is located indicating that it is not children’s playground equipment but outdoor gym equipment and participants must use the equipment sensibly at their own rate and children should be supervised in its use. It is not a requirement to fence an outdoor gym equipment site but it is advisable to install equipment further than 50 metres from a designated playground equipment area.
