US bias[edit]

This article makes the assumption that the reader is in the United States, for example saying that a playground surface 'must' meet American standards. DJ Clayworth (talk) 16:11, 16 December 2009 (UTC)

I fixed some of this - but it still needs more work. Rklawton (talk) 05:27, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
EN 1177:1997 "Impact absorbing playground surfacing – Safety requirements and test methods", BS 7188:1998 "Impact absorbing playground surfacing - Performance requirements and test methods" and AS/NZS 4422:1996 "Playground surfacing - Specifications, requirements and test methods". I don't have copies of these European, British and Australian/NZ standards, so I don't have any idea how they relate to ASTM F 355-01 or ASTM F 1292-99 referred to in the article. Fingers crossed someone will know more than me.
There is a discussion paper from UTS that discusses some of the issues. Maybe the bit on the standard requirements could be fleshed out a bit. (talk) 06:28, 10 July 2013 (UTC)

Lack of references[edit]

Abysmal lack of references, including nothing on the figures in the safety section. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:24, 13 June 2010 (UTC)

Engineered Wood Fiber[edit]

This article was obviously written as a promotional piece for Engineered Wood Fiber - probably by an employee or marketing firm. However, the subject is notable, and there's nothing to stop editors from salvaging some of the material and turning this into an encyclopedic rather than marketing article.

Link removal[edit]

I follow wikipedia guidelines... — Preceding unsigned comment added by Senordiamond (talkcontribs) 06:30, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

You are mistaken. The guideline on external links forbids links mainly intended to promote a website and links to suppliers and/or manufacturers. - MrOllie (talk) 13:54, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
