    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification establishes minimum characteristics for those factors that determine accessibility. This specification applies to all types of materials that can be used under and around playground equipment.

    1.2 The material under and around playground equipment that meets this specification must also comply with Specification F1292 if the surface is within the fall zone.

    1.3 This specification does not imply that an injury cannot be incurred if the surface system complies with this specification.

    1.4 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The SI units given in parentheses are for information only.

    1.5 The following precautionary statement pertains only to the test method portions, Sections 6 and 7, of this specification: 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.

    Note 1-Specification F1951-99 replaces ASTM PS 83, Provisional Standard Specification for Determination of Accessibility of Surface Systems Under and Around Playground Equipment.
