Buyers of swing sets are opting for a metal swing set as the preferred type of swing set for their children. The dangers involved in having swing sets built from pressure treated lumber play a large part in the decision. Swing sets made from galvanized metal are just as sturdy as wooden sets and can withstand the elements. The main attraction in using galvanized metal for swing sets is that it won’t rust and will last for many years and so will make a great addition to any backyard swing sets area you may already have or going to build.
The metal swing set has to be anchored securely in the ground by using concrete around the base. Built this way, they are designed to be strong enough for both adults to use as well as children. Nowdays the standard swingsets found in public playgrounds are almost always made of galvanized metal, which helps to stop rust and so ensures it stays solid & strongly built. If they are not galvanized they are probably painted to prevent rust.
The top metal bar of a metal swing set should be the same thickness as a nickel and a dime would be if they were placed on top of each other. These type of swing sets can usually support seventy plus pounds. Normally they are usually factory-made and easily purchased from your the local store. The purchaser can assemble them if they are a bit of a handy man or women or an installer can be hired to install the swing set. This of course depends on the financial costs involved. An ordinary metal swing set costs less than a wooden one and looks just as nice in the backyard. If it is galvanized you won’t have to worry about rust and this aspect of the metal swing set is usually guaranteed.
