The indoor playground structure requirements are based on the assumption that they will be composed in large part of combustible materials. If the desire is to place them in a corner of the buidling, then additional safeguards may be necessary to help cpntain any fire that may be in the playground area including added fire resistance ratings and supplemental suppression protection.

Not to highjack this topic, but I have a question about play structures installed inside. Section 424.4 states, “Children’s play structures shall have a horizontal seperation from building walls, partitions and from elements of the means of egress of not less than 5 feet.” Many of our structures are built in the corner or adjacent a wall per customer requests and a 5 foot space all around the structure would not be acceptable.
Would anyone have insight on possible solutions around this or steps to getting the wording amended?

Echoing what Andrew said, Section 1109.15.3 of the 2012 IBC (remember POA adopted the 2012 Chapter 11 provisions) applies to the freestanding playground equipment. Section 1108 of the 2009 ICC/ANSI A117.1 applies specifically.
I would also apply Section 1604 for the structural aspects of the elements. Assuming that they are play elements, there really isn’t a means of egress issue. Adequate widths will be determined by the accessibility needs noted above. Additionally, the safety glazing provisions in Section 2406 need to be included (as applicable). Weather protection/roofing isn’t a big concern since they aren’t true “buildings” intended for occupancy. If you’re outside playing in the rain, you can expect to get wet.

There are accessibility requirements for play equipment.

Is there a design standard enforceble by the 2009 IBC that regulates construction of site constructed playground equipment? In PA, we have ommited the administration chapter of the IBC. I have several headaches, I mean structures, in a recreational vehicle park, and wanted to know how to enforce construction requirements.
The structures are mini-sized buildings that represent an “old west” theme. They are obviously not occupiable by an adult, but are capable of holding 5-10 children. Egress width? Stair requirements? Emergency lighting? Glazing? Finish material?
Any suggestions enforceable by the code, except chapter 1, would be appreciated.
