Additional Guidelines and Recommendations
- Other guidelines for all types of climbing equipment include:
- All rungs on climbing equipment are generally round and secured to prevent them from turning.
- Maximum rung diameter for toddlers is 1.20 inches (preferred 0.90) and for preschool/school age maximum diameter is 1.55 inches (preferred 1.25).
- Use zone extends a minimum of 6 feet from the perimeter of a stand-alone climber.
- Use zone of a climber may overlap other equipment if other equipment allows for overlapping use zones and there is at least 6 feet between the two pieces of equipment (9 feet when adjacent play surfaces are more than 30 inches high).
- Appropriate surfacing guidelines must be followed underneath and around equipment.
- Signs are posted to indicate the appropriate age and rules for play equipment.
