The frame for the swing may be specified to be made from timber or steel which ensures that the basket can be supported with a heavy amount of weight inside it.

Different playground equipment will require a Critical Fall Height (CFH); the higher the equipment, the deeper the safety surface ought to be.

This really is based upon Head Injury Criteria testing (HIC) that takes into account the maximum fall height of playground equipment along with the sub-base.

The CFH for each piece of apparatus isn’t necessarily the overall height of apparatus however more often than not the height where a child may fall from.

One example is if there is a train on a play area, the fall height will be the highest platform instead of the roof covering the equipment.
