Permanently installed outdoor fitness equipment. Safety requirements and test methods

Status : Current, Under review   Published : April 2015



This European standard specifies general safety requirements for the manufacture, installation, inspection and maintenance of permanently installed, freely accessible outdoor fitness equipment. This standard does not cover electrically driven equipment, functional training facilities (typically with unrestrained weights) nor military style obstacle courses.

The equipment is intended for youths and adults or users having an overall height greater than 1 400 mm to promote fitness by using the equipment to exercise. Equipment covered by this standard is not playground equipment for children ( EN 1176 series), indoor stationary training equipment ( EN 957 series) or free access multi-sports equipment ( EN 15312) even if it meets the requirements of each of these standards.


In this standard “permanently installed outdoor fitness equipment” is simply called “fitness equipment”.
