Our tennis tables comply with the safety standards prescribed by the European Harmonized Rules on the tennis tables safety EN 14468-1 (table) and EN 14468-2 (net and posts).
However, to ensure the complete children safety at all times, we recommend that you follow some extra precautions.
Unpacking should be carried out entirely by adults. Keep children away during all steps.
Immediately clear off the packing, particularly the nylon parts and the straps which may cause children to suffocate.
Assembly, disassembling, part replacing
Assembly (and, whenever necessary, disassembling and part replacing) should be carried out entirely by adults.
Keep children away during all assembly steps to avoid that they may be fortuitously hit by the table components as well as preventing them from seizing parts that, if improperly used, could be very dangerous.
Effect the assembly correctly (following the Instructions supplied with the table) and take care not to leave any screw or bolt loose: if they are tightened properly it will be impossible for a child to take them off.
Tennis table balls have a 4cm diameter, therefore larger than the dimensions indicated by the law (3,17 or smaller) as potentially dangerous for children younger of 3 years, that could swallow them. However a certain attention is advisable if children of that age are around.
