This guide establishes the safety, performance and maintenance requirements pertaining to above-ground (indoor/outdoor), public-use skatepark facilities and any elements included therein that are intended to be used in the performance of the sports including skateboarding, inline skating, and BMX biking. The skatepark elements covered here are guardrails (including return guardrails and adjoining resting deck guardrails), protective edging/surfaces, riding surfaces, copings, approaches/thresholds, stairs, and portable and stand-alone elements. Items such as fencing, lighting, and operational structures are not addressed here.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
1.1 This guide covers safety and performance guidelines pertaining to public skatepark facilities and any element included therein. These guidelines pertain to any elements intended to be used in the performance of the sports including skateboarding, inline skating, and BMX biking. Items such as fencing, lighting, and operational structures are not intended to be a part of this guide.
1.2 This guide applies to above-ground (indoor/outdoor) skatepark elements, intended for recreational use.
1.3 The text of this standard references notes and footnotes which provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in tables and figures) shall not be considered as requirements of the standard.
1.4 Tolerances – General Measures, Tolerances, and Conversions—The general dimensional tolerances for this specification (unless otherwise noted) are as follows:
|X in. or ft||±0.5 in. or ft|
|X.X in. or ft||±0.05 in. or ft|
|X.XX in. or ft||±0.005 in. or ft|
Note 1—These tolerances still apply to a dimension even when terms like greater than, less than, minimum, or maximum are used.
1.5 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
Note 2—The conversion factor from inch-pound to SI units is 1 in. = 25.4 mm, and 1 lb = 0.45359 kg.
1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
