Lappset design criteria ensures effi cient packaging for ease
of transportation. The packages are placed on pallets to speed
up the loading and handling, and significantly reduce transport
damage and costs.
With each Lappset product we attach clear assembly and installation instructions. Components are clearly numbered in order to make the installation as easy as possible. In the illustrated installation instructions you will find all the necessary information regarding frame connections, assembly of wall elements, panels, roofs and the installation of the structural elements such as posts, bars, nets, suspension bridges, steps and slides.
Minimum safety zones
The safety area for each product is shown in the catalogue and also in the installation instructions. Since products may change during the validity of this catalogue, the safety area must always be built according to the installation instructions provided with the product. Up-to-date documents can also be found on the Lappset website.
As standard, the playground equipment is installed on underground foundations. Alternatively, the equipment can be surface mounted. Please specify when placing your order if you wish to opt for surface mounting. Playground equipment and other items must be permanently fixed to the ground. Some equipment can be fixed to the ground using anchoring parts that must be ordered separately. The traditional use of concrete foundations is only required in certain cases. Details of specific foundations are given within the installation instructions.
According to the EN standards, playground equipment must
be assembled on a surface the critical fall height of which
corresponds to the fall height of the equipment. If loose
materials, such as sand with a grain size of 0.2–2 mm or gravel
with a grain size of 2–8 mm, are used, the required layer
thickness varies between 25 and 40 cm. Safety tiles, which are
made of bonded rubber shred, present an easy-to-clean option
for a safe floor material. Elements can be assembled on top of
grass, as long as their critical fall height does not exceed 1 m.
In addition to the shock absorbing base shown in the
drawings, the safety sphere extends to at least 150 cm around
all parts of the product upon which users can climb. Different
countries may have different regulations regarding this space.
Most countries prohibit allowing sharp and hard objects in this
area, such as cut stones or rough tree stumps.
More detailed information on safe floor materials will be supplied
with the assembly instructions.

Elevation and footing depths of the equipment must follow
the instructions. The vertical parts must be vertical and the
horizontal parts must be horizontal, as otherwise certain
planned inclinations in the equipment may not conform to safety
norms. If the guidelines for minimum safety zones mentioned
in the installation instructions are not followed, the installer
may have to accept the consequences of this negligence and
compensate for any injuries sustained within the minimum
Commissioning of the Playground

Please remember that the play area should not be used until the
site has been cleared and the playground declared safe!
