Because we have distribution around the world we take every advancement in our engineering to ensure that we not only exceed the North American standard for structure safety, but every region that we serve.
Our Engineering standards exceed the following industry expectations:
In the interest of playground safety, the International Play Equipment Manufacturers Association (IPEMA) provides a Third Party Certification Service whereby a designated independent laboratory, TUV America, (TUV), validates an equipment manufacturerâ€™s certification of conformance to ASTM F1487, Standard Consumer Safety Performance Specification for Playground Equipment for Public Use, except sections 7.1.1, 10 and 12.6.1; to CAN/CSA Z614, Childrenâ€™s Playspaces and Equipment, except clauses 9.8, 10 & 11; or both. The use of the corresponding logo in Dynamo Playgrounds' Website signifies that Dynamo Playgrounds has received written validation from the independent laboratory that the product(s) associated with the use of the logo conforms to the requirements of the indicated standard. Check the IPEMA website (www.ipema.org) to confirm product validation.
The American Society for Testing and Materials is an independent and world renowned developer of technical standards utilized in testing a multitude of products. ASTMâ€™s F15.29 committee, chaired by Dr. Francis Wallach, met consistently for over a decade in the continual development of the F1487 Standard Consumer Safety Performance Specifications for Playground Equipment for Public Use. The original standard, F1487-93 was published in 1993 and subsequently replaced by the current version F1487-07aε1, published in 2007.
Product Service, an international testing and certification organization is a European Union Notified and Competent Body providing services which include product testing and certification. The highly visible TĂśV-Mark demonstrates to customers that safety testing and certification has been completed by an independent third-party organization.
The Canadian Standards Association is an independent and renowned developer of technical standards utilized in evaluating a multitude of products. The CSA standard on Childrenâ€™s Playspaces and Equipment 1990 edition was revised in April 2007 and is now officially CAN/CSA-Z614-07, entitled Childrenâ€™s Playspaces and Equipment. The CSA standard is significantly harmonized with the ASTM F1487 standard.
