The TRIAX TOUCH E-Missile is the latest evolution of playground surface impact testing devices. It is fully compliant with American (ASTM F1292), European (EN 1177), and many other worldwide standards for the measurement of shock (G) and head injury criteria (HIC) values as would be experienced during an impact of a head-on a surface system. Since 1988, continuous engineering development combined with ongoing participation in worldwide standards development has resulted in a device that produces accurate and consistent measurement results in both field and laboratory use.
Accurate and repeatable measurements require accurate fall heights, which are provided by TRIAX Tripod. Using the standard set of legs fall heights of up to 12 feet can be accommodated, extending to 14 feet with an optional additional set of leg sections. Snap together quick connect couplers for the tripod leg sections speed setup time allowing operators to get more work done in less time.
The collaboration of Alpha Automation and Canadian Playground Advisory has resulted in the advancement of standards for the protection of children at play and athletes around the world. A key element to the work behind TRIAX Touch is the provision of training, educational seminars, and participation in standards around the world.
