How does ActiveFit minimize THE potential for rusting?
ActiveFit uses galvanized steel piping for its construction, powder primer, and finally coated, using the most advanced polyester powder coating pre-treatments and applications. This combination results in strong protection against the environmental challenge of Canadian weather and reduces (does not eliminate) rust-creep when product is vandalized by scratching.
What are the primary materials used in ActiveFit construction?
- Primary structural (main frame) materials are 3.0″ (0.12 wall) and 5.0″ (0.186″ wall) OD.
- Secondary structural (sub-frame) materials are 1.66″ (0.12 wall) and 2.375″ (0.134 wall) OD
- Handles are 1.66″ (0.12 wall) OD
- Foot, back and seat rests are 3/4” High-Density Polyethylene. Foot Rests are designed to prevent slippage.
- All exposed fasteners are stainless steel.
- Bushings are self-lubricating, Ultra High Molecular Weight Poly Propylene (UHMWPP)
- Main Pivot points consist of a 0.62” to 1.18” OD solid stainless-steel shaft.
Is there a regulation or industry standard governing the design, manufacturing and installation of fitness equipment?
No. Well at least not yet in Canada. However, as an industry standard we have adopted the use of ASTM-F3101 as the standard specifications for the design, manufacturing and installation of outdoor fitness equipment.
