We pride ourselves in using only high quality steel in all of the playgrounds that we manufacture. Our swing sets are manufactured using only the best materials. The structure is manufactured using only the highest quality heavy gauge Super 40 steel. This steel meets stringent quality, and reliability requirements, as well as many steel industry certification standards. This pipe has a triple outside diameter coating, which includes high purity zinc, a chromate conversion layer, and a new superior clear organic coating. This, combined with a special I.D. coating creates a product that looks good, and has the excellent corrosion resistance that you expect. The steel must also pass humidity, and salt spray testing from certifying agencies, and provides a very high level of customer satisfaction.
The structural steel meets or exceeds ASTM F-1043. We have not found a competitor on the market who uses the same or equivalent grade of steel. By contrast, most competitors are using thin 18-gauge tubing with a lower quality of galvanizing, and we have not found anyone else who has pipe that is galvanized on the inside. We promise that our equipment will stand the test of time, and look good longer than any other swing set on the market.
Our metal swing sets are maintenance free – Wood swing sets require regular sanding, and staining to keep the wood free from splintering, and cracking. Our equipment is bolted together, tightened down securely, and will remain tight and secure – wood swing sets will have to be checked and re-tightened on a regular basis to insure the safety of your children. Our swing hangers are clamped and bolted around the top rail for maximum safety – swing hangers on wood swing sets are most commonly just lag bolted into the top beam. Because of the swinging motion, lag bolts will work loose in the hole, and eventually fall out. Even if the swing hangers are bolted through the top beam of a wooden swing set, they will still become loose with use, and time. Our metal swing sets have much taller swing heights than wood swing sets. Our metal swing sets can confidently be used by kids of all ages and adults – As they grow, kids will become bored with wooden swing sets, generally because of the low swing height, and because they become loose, and wobbly. Our Component Playgrounds brand metal swing sets will be strong and secure for as long as you own it – wooden swing sets will become loose, creaky, and wobbly with age.

Our playgrounds must be installed into concrete footings. Purchase 80-pound bags of high quality concrete mix at your local hardware store. Each individual set will have different amounts of concrete required. Please refer to instruction sheets for the amount necessary for your set. Each leg and ladder has the extra length necessary for cementing into the ground.
All of the tools necessary are common and found in most toolboxes, or they are easily purchased at the local hardware store. Each set comes with written instructions that include a list of the tools needed to complete the installation. Some of the tools that are necessary and common to all of the sets we offer are: Shovel, digging bar or pick, 9/16” wrenches or ratchets, level, and a wheelbarrow. Depending on the set, a cordless or electric drill, various drill, and driver bits may be required.
