FibarSystems | General Information

The 2012 Federal Accessibility Law requires all playground surfaces to be accessible. Surfaces must pass ASTM F1951 (accessibility) and F1292 (impact) to ensure compliance with the Law. It is essential that the surface is installed correctly including ADA FibarMat wear mats and an accessible entryway. The
surface must be maintained according to Fibar’s maintenance instructions.

Prior to the start of construction, you will receive a binder with all the necessary information to properly construct your Fibar System playground safety surface. It will also include special tools to make the job more efficient, and to help ensure playground equipment safety. Additional copies are available upon request at no charge.

These rubber wear mats provide extra protection and accessibility. To prevent displacement of the Fibar in high-use areas, FibarMat wear mats must be installed under all swings, tire swings, slide exits, and all other wear areas, including sliding poles. This will help to ensure compliance with the Federal Accessibility Law of March 15, 2012. Note: A FibarMat wear mat must be installed under all swings and slide exits to preserve the Warranty.

A Use Zone of at least 6 feet must surround all equipment for complete playground equipment safety; with the exception of:

  • Swings: A Use Zone equal to 4 times the height of the top rail is needed in front of and behind swings (2 times in front and 2 times behind) to ensure a safe swing set.
  • Slides: For playground protection on slides, the Use Zone surrounding a slide should be a minimum of 6 feet, except for the slide exit area where the Use Zone shall be a minimum of 6 feet or the distance between the highest point of the slide to the protective surfacing. The Use Zone at the slide exit need not exceed 8 feet.
