Find out about use zones, plus easily estimate your square footage with our calculator.
In order to ensure our playgrounds are properly designed to minimize safety risks, we meet or exceed applicable standards for playground safety use zones. The safety use zone is the minimum free space around a play structure required to meet Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and American Society for Testing and Materials International (ASTM) standards. Use zone measurements vary depending upon the type, elevation and intended use of the equipment.
Here are some helpful tips for use zones:
Find out your structure's available square footage here. The majority of our commercial structures have a safety use zone. This zone includes the space that the structure occupies and the buffer space surrounding the area. Measurements will be listed as XX' L x XX' W (e.g. 22' L x 24' W). Multiplying length by width will generate your square footage.
