Corporate Social Responsability: Safety

Ensuring safety and eliminating any physical danger for those who use the Garlando products has always been one of the company priorities, in which Garlando has invested considerable energies and resources.
 
The lines of products for which the regulations prescribe particular safety requirements are manufactured in compliance with the same. The CE mark on products - on the packing and on the Assembly Manual- guarantees for the conformity to the European rules. 
 
For all the others, in the absence of specific laws, we assure the respect of the normal safety standards: a product is considered safe when its use, if appropriate, does not involve risks except for the ones linked with the use itself. 
 
Football tables for home use
 
This line of products, mainly meant for a family public, has been the object of a special attention: Garlando has obtained the Declaration of Compliance with the European Harmonized Rules of Safety EN 71, specific for the category of toys. 
 
Although extremely sturdy products, with a few differences only from the coin operated football tables, they are bound to the same safety prescriptions as toys, as they can be used by children between 3 and 14 years of age. 
 
The tables compliance with the European safety regulations has been verified by means of appropriate test and assessment procedures effected by the Istituto Italiano Sicurezza Giocattoli (Italian Institute for Toy Safety).
 
The tables have undergone the following tests: 
 
Physical & mechanical for compliance with Rule 71-1.
 
This group of tests guarantees that Garlando home football tables:
 
have the necessary stability on the ground 
 
do not contain parts that may cause contact injuries
 
do not involve any risks for someone to get trapped inside
 
do not cause any physical harm because of the parts movement. 
 
Flammability for compliance with Rule 71-2
 
This group of tests guarantees that Garlando home football tables:
 
do not contain flammable substances or compounds 
 
do not contain elements or substances that can explode
 
do not contain substances or chemicals that can explode when mixed up, or heated up, or following a chemical reaction 
 
in the event of a fire is set to a football table, the flame propagation speed is lower than the safety threshold prescribed
 
Chemical tests on the migration of certain elements for compliance with Rule 71-3. 
 
This group of tests guarantees that Garlando home football tables:
 
do not contain irritant materials or substances which are dangerous in contact with the skin or if inhaled.
 
In addition, Garlando freeplay football tables are manufactured with non-toxic materials: formaldehyde-free wooden compounds (plywood or MDF) and plastic parts not containing polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. 
 
Assembly Manuals supplied with football tables include a Safety Warning for the safest use. 
 
Coin operated football tables 
 
Italian law 313 of 27.09.1991, in actuation of the European directives in this matter, defines as not belonging to the category of toys the Professional games installed in public places. 
 
Coin operated football tables are therefore expressly excluded from complying with the safety standards which are binding for toys. 
 
Nevertheless, Garlando applies to this line of articles the same safety standard which are valuable for home football tables. 
 
Likewise the home models, the coin operated football tables are manufactured with non-toxic materials: formaldehyde-free wooden compounds (plywood or MDF) and plastic parts not containing polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. 
 
The football tables equipped with electrical devices (playing field lighting system, electromechanical or electronic coin validation systems) comply with the Harmonized Rules on Electromagnetic Compatibility (89/336/CEE) and Safety 73/23/CEE) in that they guarantee what follows:
 
the tension is adequately insulated
