What should I look out
for when planning
a park?


How big should it be?

The minimum area should comprise 250 m2, mainly due to the safety areas and the distances
between the individual features.

Which surface is best for skating on?

Asphalt: good elasticity with balanced vibration performance. Frost damage and stress cracks are
extremely unlikely. Negligible wear and abrasion due to skating. Given regular care, particularly
with regard to lesser-used areas, the asphalt should last a good 20 years.

Surface structure:

  • filter layer made of gravel, granulation 8/32, layer depth 10 cm
  • load-carrying layer made of anti-freeze, granulation 0/32, layer depth 15 cm
  • lower asphalt layer made of bitumen grit approx. 100 kg/m2, depth 4 cm
  • upper asphalt layer made of refined asphalt concrete, granulation 0/5 or 0/8 approx. 60kg/m2,
    depth 2.5 cm


Approx. €35 – €50 per

How should the skate park be secured?

Wherever possible the park should be closed off with a perimeter fence. Fixed opening times
should be agreed with local residents; the park should be closed to unauthorised persons outside
opening hours. In the event that the park is located by a through road or thoroughfare, it must in
any case (by law) be secured by a clear boundary

How should the park be equipped?

Safety has priority.

Please note that the decision must clearly be taken in favour of facilities approved by the local Health and Safety Executive!! Even though they may make a good impression at first sight or even though the terms TÜV or GS appear in the catalogue, not all facilities, ramps or rails, etc. are fully tested or adequately safe.

The regulations pursuant to DIN 33943 apply in all cases and the
customer should request an expertise by the Health & Safety
Executive from the other bidders with regard to the desired obstacle.

What does the beginner need?

  • space to practise
  • circular run to practise riding along bends
  • small Jump Ramps and low Launch Boxes to practise jumps

What does the advanced skater need?

  • plenty of space, obviously, to skate
  • higher Jump Ramps and Launch Boxes
  • Banks and Curbs for approach and grinding exercises
  • Spine Ramp
  • Mini Ramp

What does the proficient skater need?

  • Mini Pipes and Half Pipes
  • Fun Boxes
  • Rails
  • Quarter Pipes for the approach

How safe does a skate park have to be?

  • As mentioned above, the park should be fenced off in the interests of protecting the users; we also urge the building of an embankment.
  • No compromises should be made concerning the integrity and safety of the facility. Peace of mind can only come from facilities approved by the local Health and Safety Executive: in principle, there is no other way than to comply with this requirement.
  • DIN 33943 sets out precisely how the facilities are to be erected. Extremely important: the height chosen for each feature must also take into consideration the width required.

A ramp (Mini Ramp, Quarter Pipe, etc.) with a platform height exceeding 1.5 metres and a width of 3 metres is not allowed, even though other bidders feature these in their programmes.

Never forget that the operator is always liable in case of damage or accident; lack of knowledge is no excuse in this case, only correct advice and guidance can eradicate such problems from the outset.

User information signs should be attached to the entrances in
clearly visible places; we also supply such signs!
