Clive Dodd, Director of Consulting Coordination, says “The free height of fall (FHOF) allowed under the new AS4685:2014 is a maximum of 3.0 metres being 0.5 metres higher than the existing AS4685:2004 standard.”
The introduction of this new Australian standard has meant that KOMPAN have been able to drastically increase their product offering. Sue Simpson, Managing Director of KOMPAN said ‘This new standard represents years of collaboration from many parties and we are delighted to be able to open our existing product portfolio to depths never seen before, in total 555 new products for the Australian market.”
According to Clive, “upper body equipment still has a maximum FHOF of 2.2 metres and Supervised Early Childhood Services (SECS) will have a maximum FHOF of 1.8 metres.” (currently SECS 1.5m).
“In general, the fall zones derived from the new AS4685:2014 are either smaller or the same as those derived from AS4685:2004,” he added.
With the introduction of this new standard KOMPAN is delighted to also announce their exclusive partnership with Sik Holz. According to Sue, “Sik Holz unique range of products are very much in vogue with landscape architects and have been for some months now. The market is definitely rediscovering the connection with timber products particularly the distinctive ‘sculptures’ Sik Holz are celebrated for.”
