What type of swing set lasts the longest?

A top-quality swing set or playset will always deliver two things: safety, which is our main concern as parents, and durability. These kinds of playsets do not usually come cheap, but in companies such as Adventure World Playsets, you can rest assured knowing that you are getting your every penny’s worth and that your investment will last for many, many years!

If you are going to invest in a playset for your family, you must make sure that the set is built sturdy, safe, and from the best materials. When you start looking around for a swing set or a full playset, check out that they have the following 4 traits that will ensure a long life for them:

Vinyl-covered wood:

Imagine the strongest kind of wood for outdoor playsets, like the kind they use in parks. That’s pressure-treated wood, and it’s super tough! But even tough wood can get grumpy from being outside all the time; rain can make it soggy, sun can crack it, and bugs might want to nibble on it. That’s where the vinyl jacket comes in! It’s like a superhero suit for the wood. This special vinyl is super strong and wraps around the wood like a hug. It keeps little hands safe from splinters and blisters, because vinyl is smooth and soft. But most importantly, it protects the wood from all that nasty weather and creepy crawlies.

Rain slides right off, the sun can’t get through, and no bugs can get in to munch on the wood. So, vinyl-covered wood keeps your playset strong and happy for years to come!

Ground Anchors

Imagine a super strong gust of wind blowing through your backyard, trying to tip over your swing set! That wouldn’t be any fun, right? That’s why it’s super important to make sure your swing set is like a rock, nice and stable. Here at Adventure World, we use two ground anchors for each swing beam, just like extra strong roots holding a tree down. These anchors dig deep into the ground and grip it tight, so no matter how hard the wind blows, your swing set will stay put. This might sound like a small detail, but it makes a big difference in preserving the life of your swing set. Some cheaper swing sets might only use one anchor, or none at all, which can be dangerous in strong winds. So remember, two anchors for each swing beam is like a superhero cape for your playset, keeping it safe and strong for years of fun!

Busy Basecamp Package #B55-8 Strong Fasteners: 

Imagine your kids are having a blast on the swing set, going up and down, back and forth; all that swinging creates a lot of wiggling and pulling on the parts that hold the swing set together. Some cheaper playsets use wooden lags to hold things together, kind of like tiny nails. But these lags don’t go all the way through the wood, and over time, as your kids play harder, the holes around the screws get bigger and bigger. This makes the whole swing set weaker, like a loose tooth that might fall out.

We use special super strong fasteners which are like metal braces that go all the way through the wood beams and are bolted tight on both sides. It’s like having superhero muscles holding the swing set together. No matter how hard your kids play, the whole structure will stay strong and secure for years of fun adventures!

Custom made:

Think about building a giant fort for your backyard, but you have to do it super fast! Things might get a little messy, and maybe you miss a step or two in the instructions.

That wouldn’t be very safe, right? The same thing can happen with swing sets that are built super fast in big factories. Sometimes mistakes get made, and that can lead to problems down the road.

At Adventure World, We Don’t Take Shortcuts

Our swing sets are built with care, one at a time, by Amish craftsmen. They take their time and make sure everything is perfect, just like building a special project from scratch. This careful attention to detail makes our swing sets super strong, safe and durable, so your kids can play for hours, days and years!  It’s like having a super strong fort built just for them, ready for years of endless adventures!

As you can see, the swing set or playset that will last the longer will be the one that is built with vinyl-protected wood, has strong ground anchors and fasteners, and is made individually and carefully. At Adventure World, we build all of our swing sets and playsets this way, which allows for us to give you a 20-year warranty!

We have been trying to purchase one of these play sets for months and none of the dealers in our area will call us back about purchasing one. I wish the purchasing process was easier than "find a vendor in your local area". No one here wants to build them! The Happy Hideout looks like an amazing product for my toddler to grow into. I'm sad no one will build them or call us back. Edit: The company contacted me personally and found a vendor in my area!
