Swing heights, clearances and fallzones!


Just tap in your beam height and seat height and leave the rest to us, we’ll tell you all the need to knows!


An easy-to-use online calculation tool that uses formula to calculate the compliance requirements of a swing as per the EN1176, NZS5828 and SANS 51176 Standards.


The useful tool calculates the following:


  • Swing seat separations
  • Swing pivot height (surface to pivot)
  • Seat Height (surface to top of seat)
  • Suspension member length (incl seat)
  • Side Clearance (Frame to swing)
  • Seat Separation (seat to seat)
  • Max free height of fall (Fhf)
  • 60 Degrees (0.867)
  • ECE Fallzone Required - (1.50m)
  • Synthetic Fallzone Required - (1.75m) + excludes +0.5m no obstacles buffer
  • Loosefill Fallzone Required - (2.25m)



The calculator works by submitting two crucial measurements:

  • Swing pivot height (surface to pivot)
  • Seat Height (surface to top of seat)


To use measure and input the height from the surface vertically up to the pivot point, and measure and input the seat height from the surface to the top of the seat.


The download comes with a lifetime-link digital file with instructions and calculator link.
