Critical fall heights for Warco safety tiles
Critical fall height is the maximal height from which a child might fall on the playground. See below which safety tile you should choose for your play area.
|Max. fall height||Suitable safety tile|
|110 cm||NF30 or TZ30 (30 mm thick)|
|110 cm||FS30 (35 mm thick)|
|150 cm||NF40 or TZ40 (40 mm thick)|
|170 cm||FS50 (50 mm thick)|
|240 cm||FS80 (80 mm thick)|
|300 cm||FS10 (100 mm thick)|
These numbers apply to the safety tiles made of polyurethane-bonded rubber granulate by German manufacturer WARCO. Certified critical fall heights depend not only on the tile thickness but also on the granulate type, connection and underside profile, hence different values for apparently similar tiles.
