Swing Impact Tester


Canadian Playground Advisory Inc. in response to the need to provide special test devices for the En1176 playground standard in Europe, developed the test device that will allow to test a swing seat for as it is installed in the field or in a laboratory or factory setting.  This test procedure has now been taken up in the ASTM F1487 standard. 




Canadian Playground Advisory Inc., provides support and training programs as to how these devices are used in conjunction with the relevant standards, including the measurement and reporting of the performance requirements.
