Adding The Best Safety Features
Your child’s safety is always our top priority. Features such as safety coated swing chains, commercial grade hardware, wide and flat ladder steps, self-reinforced slides, and 4x6 swing beams have made our swing sets some of the safest available anywhere. We continue to raise the bar within the industry through patented safety equipment like our One-Piece A-Frame Bracket™, which ensures an extremely stable swing set.
BELOW ARE OVERVIEWS OF JUST A FEW OF OUR SAFETY FEATURES:
PRE-SANDED & PRE-DRILLED LUMBER
We discovered early on that we could sand the lumber twice for extra peace of mind, ensuring that our wood comes out smooth, beautiful, and ready to use. We even pre-drill the main beams to save you time and eliminate possible mistakes during installation.
SAFETY COATED SWING CHAINS
Our swing chains have a soft plastic coating that is durable, flexible, and remains cool even in direct sunlight. Moreover, it does not pinch small fingers and will not pull hair. The comfortable grip instills confidence in your little ones.
All materials used on our swing sets are safe for children, plants and pets. The micronized copper process used to preserve our pine lumber is GreenGuard™ certified as safe for children. This process offers protection for the lumber and increases its life span and durability.
Our hardware consists of oversized bolts and heavy lag screws that are electro-galvanized to prevent corrosion. We bolt our iron swing hangers completely through our swing beams with lock nuts & carriage bolts. Decks, wall slats, and wood roofs all use commercial grade zinccoated deck screws. Nails, which can work loose, are never used in the construction of our swing sets. We even recess bolts into the wood and cap them in order to prevent injuries.
HEAVY-DUTY BEAMS FOR SUPPORT
Huge 4x6 swing beams are standard on all swing sets. Lifetime Series swing sets include unique 4x4 undercarriages and heavier hardware. They can handle additional weight and do not need to be anchored into the ground. In fact, our Southern Yellow Pine swing sets are the heaviest and most durable units on the market.
UV PROTECTED & REINFORCED SLIDES
Our slides are designed from the ground up to fit perfectly with our swing sets. They are made of polyethylene and have built-in UV protection, which resists color fading even in direct sunlight. Thick rails, wide and solid bases, and double wall construction (available on most slides) ensure our slides are some of the safest in the industry. They never need additional reinforcement.
