This European Standard BS EN 14960 applies to inflatable play equipment intended for use by children fourteen years and under both individually and collectively. This standard specifies safety requirements for inflatable play equipment for which the main activities are bouncing and sliding. It sets measures to assess risks and also to minimise accidents to users for those involved in the design, manufacture, supply and operation of inflatable play equipment. It specifies information to be supplied with the equipment. The requirements have been laid down bearing in mind the risk factor based on all available data. EN 14960 specifies the requirements that will protect a child from hazards that he or she may be unable to foresee when using the equipment as intended, or in a manner that can be reasonably anticipated. The standard does NOT apply to inflatable water-borne play and leisure equipment, domestic inflatable toys, air-supported buildings, inflatables used solely for protection, inflatables used for rescue, or other types of inflatable toys where the main activity is not bouncing or sliding.
