Some might not notice this but commercial swings come in many shapes and sizes. As you plan for your school or community playground structures, remember to add swings since no playground is complete without them. Here’s what you should know about the different types of commercial swings.
One important part of a swing is the frame. The frame serves as a foundation for the swings and if there is no frame, there are no swings. Therefore, it is crucial to decide on which frame fits best with your design idea. We offer several durable and functional frames such as the single post swing frame, arch swing frame, T-Swing frame and pod swing frame. Constructed from steel, the straight, single post swing frame is a traditional yet affordable option while the arch swing frame is attractive and long-lasting. The T-Swing frame is great for children from the ages of 6 to 23 months or 2 to 5 years and can be paired with full or half bucket seats.
Another thing to consider is the type of swing seat. The typical swing seat seen in many playground swing sets is the belt seat. Available in red, yellow, green, blue, black, and tan, our belt seats are also sold as a set of two. A second option is a bucket swing seat. Designed for your little ones, the bucket swing seat features high backs. A third, fun option is a tire swing seat made from durable, black molded plastic. We want everyone to be able to experience the feeling of soaring through the air so therefore, we also offer an inclusive team swing. Using an arch swing frame, kids are sure to love this swing. For children who need a little extra help, we offer an inclusive swing seat below that supports children to maintain a seated position. Check out this site that talks more about how kids with special needs enjoy inclusive play equipment and swings!
If you know your school or community has a lot of children, then you might want to consider adding several bays. In the playground world, a swing bay has two swings attached to it and the bay can be thought of as a section. Thus, in order to provide enough swings for your group of children, it is necessary to plan for additional sections or swing bays. If you want to have 6 swings, then you would need a triple bay swing set.
Swings are meant to last for years and that’s why we only use the best materials and provide professional installation. When you buy with us, you’ll also receive a warranty.
