ISO 20187:2016 pdf download,Inflatable play equipment — Safety requirements and test methods
1 Scope
This International Standard is applicable to inflatable play equipment intended for use by children up to 14 years of age individually and as a group activity. This International Standard specifies safety requirements for inflatable play equipment for which the primary activities are bouncing and sliding. It sets measures to address risks and also to minimize accidents to users for those involved in the design, manufacture, and supply of inflatable play equipment. It specifies information to be supplied with the equipment. The requirements have been laid down bearing in mind the risk factor based on available data. This International Standard specifies the requirements that will protect a child from hazards that he or she may be unable to foresee when using the equipment as intended or in a manner that can be reasonably anticipated. This International Standard is not applicable to inflatable water-borne play and leisure equipment, domestic inflatable toys, air-supported buildings, inflatables used solely for protection, inflatables used for rescue, or other types of inflatable toys where the primary activity is not bouncing or sliding.
The maximum wind-speed in which inflatables shall be used outdoors is 38 km/h (Force 5 on the Beaufort Scale; see Annex B). When used outdoors, the inflatable shall be secured to the ground, preferably with ground stakes where the ground is suitable. Each anchorage point on the inflatable and all of the components of the anchorage and/or ballast system, e.g. ropes, webbings, metal attachments, stakes, and weights shall withstand a force of 1 600 N. The direction of the exerted force shall be at an angle to the ground of 30° to 45°. Ground stakes shall incline away from the direction of the exerted force. Ground stakes shall be a minimum of 380 mm in length and a minimum of 16 mm in diameter and their tops shall be rounded. The system shall expose no more than 25 mm of the stake above ground level (see Figure 3). When the inflatable is used indoors, the anchorage and/or ballast system should be used, when necessary, to maintain stability.
On hard standing where ground stakes cannot be used, the inflatable shall be secured to the ground by equally effective method, e.g. attaching each of the anchorage points to fittings already in the ground, or to sandbags or other weights, if these are capable of supporting the 1 600 N load. If the inflatable is secured to a vehicle or other movable machinery, such vehicles or machinery shall be immobilized and be under the control of an operator.
