    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification establishes parameters for the design and manufacture of outdoor fitness equipment as defined in 3.1.30.

    1.2 It is intended that these fitness products will be used in an unsupervised outdoor setting or environment and will be permanently anchored.

    1.2.1 It is the intent of this specification to only specify requirements for outdoor fitness equipment and its installation and not the design of the facility or grounds on which the products are to be installed.

    1.3 The specifications set forth in this standard are intended to minimize the likelihood of serious injuries.

    1.3.1 The specifications set forth in this standard are for outdoor fitness equipment intended for use in an unsupervised setting by individuals age 13 and older.

    1.4 The values stated in SI (metric) units are to be regarded as standard. The values in parentheses are for information only.

    1.5 General Measures, Tolerances, and Conversions: 

    1.5.1 The general tolerances for this specification (unless otherwise specified) are as follows:



    X mm (X in.)

    ± 13.0 mm (0.5 in.)

    X.X mm (X.X in.)

    ±1.3 mm (0.05 in.)

    X.XX mm (X.XX in.)

    ±.0.130 mm (0.005 in.)

    1.5.2 These tolerances still apply to a dimension even when terms like greater than, less than, minimum, or maximum are used.

    1.6 This standard is to be used in conjunction with Test Methods F2571 and Specification F2276. If a design or installation concern is not addressed in this specification then the applicable requirements of Specification F2276 shall be used.

    1.6.1 This standard takes precedence over Specification F2276 and Test Methods F2571 in areas that are addressed in this document.

    1.7 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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    1.8 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
