Metal Swing Sets for Everyone.

Component Playgrounds builds metal swing sets and home playground equipment products to the highest standard of quality. Playgrounds are a fundamental part of the childhood experience and they should be safe havens for our children. All of us have memories of playing on playgrounds in our neighborhood parks and at recess in the schoolyard. Our swing sets have been designed with childhood memories, safety, and durability in mind. The structure is manufactured using only the highest quality heavy gauge Super 40 galvanized steel.

Metal Swing Set: Frequently Asked Questions

Are Metal Swing Sets Safe?

Metal swing sets, typically comprised of galvanized steel, are strong, durable, and safe, making them the perfect fit for both residential and commercial use. As long as your children, grandchildren or students follow the safety guidelines recommended by the manufacturer and do not exceed weight limits—which is pretty hard to do with steel—you can rest assured they will be safe playing on the swing set. Also, while metal is a heat conductor, most manufacturers put a plastic layer or protective coating over the swing chains on your metal swing set, which prevents them from overheating in the hot Utah sun and also from pinching tiny hands. Additionally, you don’t have to worry about kids getting splinters, which is one of the downsides of a wood swing set or playground. While families love our larger equipment with multiple features, such as the metal swing set with slide, we also offer more compact swing sets that are ideal for smaller spaces, so your children can safely play and swing with adequate clearance.

How Much Weight Can a Metal Swing Set Hold?

Each of our outdoor swing sets has been designed to hold 500 pounds per swing. This means that a swing set that has three swings can hold up to 1500 pounds! We have high-quality metal swing sets that have been designed to hold as much weight as possible. Our chain has a 750-pound test rating, meaning that it will be able to stand up to anything that is thrown its way.

How Much Space Should Be Between Swings?

Each of our pieces of equipment has the required amount of ground listed as well as the minimum amount of required space that should be present between swings. Take these measurements to your residential location and ensure you have enough room for your swing set.

Do You Provide Installation for Your Products?

We do! If you would like professional installation for your swing set, we can provide this service. We also provide instructions for DIY if you would like to install quality metal swing sets on your own. Component Playgrounds offers local installation to our customers throughout the Salt Lake Valley for an additional fee. Our installation staff is highly trained to provide you with a simple, hassle-free installation experience when you buy a metal swing set from us. However, you are also welcome to install the swing set on your own. At Component Playgrounds, we ship the swing set to you along with easy-to-follow instructions and diagrams, as well as a list of the tools you will need to properly install the swing set. With at least two adults on the job, smaller swing sets generally take about 1.5 hours to install, while more complex swing sets could take up to 12 hours to install. Regardless of whether you pay for our professional installation service or do it on your own, our staff will be available to answer any questions that might arise during the installation process.

How to Keep Metal Swing Set From Rusting?

Some metal rusts when exposed to moisture and oxygen; however, that is not a problem with our swing sets! We make our swing sets out of galvanized steel (instead of aluminum), which means they will not rust! As our wide range of swing sets are all made from high-quality, heavy-gauge galvanized steel, you don’t have to worry about rusting. During the galvanizing process, the steel receives a long-lasting protective coating made from zinc that is meant to deter the formation of rust. In addition to being rust-resistant, galvanized steel swing sets are also ideal for harsh climates. They are virtually maintenance-free and exceptionally durable, which means your stainless steel swing set won’t bend, splinter, or warp.

What Is the Metal Swing Set Warranty?

We provide a lifetime warranty on all defects related to our products as well as a 1-year warranty on all moving parts. This includes chains, swing hangers, swing seats, and connectors. The warranty does not extend to scratches, dents, fading, or issues related to the paint. In addition, for the warranty to be valid, the equipment has to be used in a normal and expected manner. We provide a large warranty because we are confident in the quality of our construction.

What Parts Are Needed for a Playground Swing?

There are several parts that are needed to make a playground swing function properly. These include a swing hanger, a connector, a chain or rope, and a seat for the swing itself. At Component Playgrounds, We make all of our parts from the top materials on the market to ensure they withstand routine wear and tear. The number of each of these parts required will vary depending on the number of swings attached to the swing set.

Can I Attach Chain to Eyebolts?

Absolutely not! We recommend against using eyebolts on your swing beam. This is because the eyebolts will wear against other pieces of metal, leading to major safety concerns. This could even cause the chain to break, which could lead to serious injuries. This is why we recommend using quality swing hangers instead.

Is There a Guarantee on the Metal Swing Set?

At Component Playgrounds, all our equipment, including our wide variety of swing sets, is backed by a limited lifetime warranty. Metal swing sets are popular for being durable and requiring little maintenance, even when exposed to heavy use by active children and harsh weather conditions. On top of that, we want to make sure the products you receive are superior quality and free from defective materials or workmanship. That’s why we offer a one-year warranty on all moving parts, including the chains, swing hangers, connectors, and swing seats. The warranty is valid only if the equipment is properly installed and it cannot be transferred to someone other than the original purchaser or property owner.

How Long Does It Take to Receive My Metal Swing Set?

Usually, it takes between five and ten business days to get the order ready for shipment. After this, it will take around one to two weeks for the swing set to reach its final destination. Shipping times will vary depending on how far the swing set has to travel. We try to get our swing sets shipped as quickly as possible.
