What Equipment Is Needed To Create A Skate Park?

WINAM would like to introduce a wide variety of equipment used in public skating facilities. The design of skating obstacles is limited only by imagination. Some home designs have been developed despite contradictions to the laws of physics. Such equipment often finds its way into public skating facilities. Below is a description of the most prevalent obstacles in public skate parks.

The typical equipment of the skate park

Quarter pipes are popular pieces of equipment found in skateparks. The curved surface of a quarter pipe directs riders up and above the ramp, enabling riders to perform a trick and then land back onto the ramp and roll away.
Skate park banks are similar to quarter pipes but without a curved surface. Typically placed at the perimeter of a skatepark for riders to drop in, start a session or perform a technical trick.
Two quarter pipes, configured back-to-back without a deck make a spine ramp. A narrow ridge or spine is created at the top to provide users with an obstacle for performing challenging maneuvers.
Pyramids allow riders to change the direction of flow while doing a trick and generating speed. Rails and ledges are sometimes added to the top deck to create additional, challenging obstacles.
The drop-in is a multilevel obstacle typically consisting of a quarter pipe joined end to end with a bank ramp by a connecting mid-deck. This equipment can vary widely in length and width. It sometimes contains stairs, rails and ledges to offer a variety of riding experiences in one piece of equipment.
Launch boxes are two curved ramps connected by a raised platform. Launch boxes allow riders to approach from one side, catch air, land on the deck or fly over it. This is a popular piece of equipment found in skateparks.
Two quarter pipes, banks or combinations are arranged at 45- or 90-degree angles and connected by a shared deck to make a skate park hip ramp. This shared platform helps redirect flow patterns and is popular among skateboarders.
Two quarter pipes facing each other with a flat bottom surface in between create a half pipe. The half pipe allows riders maintain speed necessary to executing multiple tricks.
Grind boxes are smooth flat platforms (with or without steel edging) designed for more advanced sliding and grinding tricks.
Styled after stairway rails, riders can finesse their balancing skills while grinding their way to the end. Grinding rails provide challenges for experienced and novice skateboarders. The rails are also used for jumping over. Several varieties of grind rails are present in skateparks.

Important Note

As stated in the Layout section of this part of these guidelines, equipment or obstacles within the park should be placed with a clearance zone of at least six feet around each piece of equipment or obstacle. Clearance zones should be free of any obstacle or hazard that may interfere with the intended or unintended travel of users and/or skateboards.
