Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 1 November 2016
Status: active
Page Count: 52
ICS Code (Sports facilities): 97.220.10
scope:

This European Standard specifies requirements for parkour equipment for use mainly by users starting from 8 years of age. This European Standard recognizes that parkour movement is personally determined by users, using controlled physical exertion from, to and through equipment elements and structures; both permanently installed and portable.

The requirements are intended to protect users from hazards that they might be unable to foresee when using the equipment as intended, or in a manner that can be reasonably anticipated.

This European Standard also specifies requirements for the installation and maintenance of parkour equipment, including area, height, flow, location and separation from other facilities, including children's playgrounds and multi-use games areas (free access multi-sports equipment).

NOTE As listed above, this European Standard is only applicable to parkour equipment, installation and maintenance, but not for example to parkour activities.
