Do We Need Insurance?

We would highly recommend that all providers take out insurance on their site.  If your site is providing additional facilities in addition to your current facilities, e.g. children’s playground, there should not be any additional cost for insurance.  In any event, the costs are very reasonable, and there are several companies willing to quote.  We have not encountered any situation so far where a group was unable to arrange insurance cover for their gym.  For a list of insurance companies contact us.

Can you visit our proposed site?

Yes, we are more than happy to meet with you on site to discuss your requirements and to advise on best location, selection of equipment etc., without obligation.

What is involved in site preparation?

All of our equipment is installed on concrete pads with incorporated bolt-down cages. There is no requirement for soft surfacing.  Obviously, if you are installing a gym around an existing pathway, this will reduce costs as there is no need for the provision of access points or circulation spaces between machines.

How much does site preparation cost?

The work involved in each site will vary depending on site layout/ground conditions/access/number of machines etc. An average cost of providing a concrete base, designed for the installation of 2 stations, 2 stand-alone machines side by side or a centre pole with a machine either side, would be in the region of €400 to €500.

What is the lead time from order to installation?

OutFit generally carries a large stock of equipment, and would normally be in a position to deliver and install your equipment within two weeks of your order, subject to site preparation work having been completed.

Can we have 2 different stations on the same centre support?

Yes, most of our equipment is fully interchangeable. All of the moving parts (stations) are fixed to the centre support using nuts and bolts which allows you to have any combination of stations either side of the centre support.  This is particularly advantageous for smaller sites where you wish to give the widest possible choice of exercise to your users at minimum cost.

What is the difference between your two varieties of centre supports?

All of our equipment can be fitted to both the single round pole support and the double pole with panel support. Aside from the centre poles, the moving parts/stations are identical in design and quality.  The centre supports are of the same sturdy structure but the double pole with panel has the advantage of allowing for a much larger area for instructions/notices etc., to be affixed to.  There is also ample space for fixing promotional material to in the event that a company or business sponsors a machine.  This design also allows for additional privacy between the users working out either side of the centre support.

Which safety standards does your equipment meet?

The most recent up to date European Standard is EN16630.  All adult outdoor fitness equipment sold in the EU must now comply with these safety standards.  All of our equipment is now manufactured to meet EN16630, and certificates are available on request.

Can we have our site inspected by an independent assessor?

RoSPA currently inspects and certifies installations of outdoor gym equipment. Although this is not mandatory, several of our clients have availed of the services of RoSPA for this purpose.  OutFit holds RoSPA membership and can arrange to have inspections carried out independently or you can arrange inspections yourself.
