Commercial Playground Swings

An all-time favorite for many,the commercial playground swing is a type of equipment commonly found in playgrounds and outdoor recreational spaces. It typically consists of a suspended seat or platform that is attached to sturdy chains or ropes, and is designed to be propelled back and forth by the user's weight and momentum.

Swings for playgrounds are a popular choice for any setting. Three main elements determine the type of swing: the materials used for the posts, their shape/size and the seat type. Commercial swings for playgrounds come in many sizes, variations, and shapes: From classic A-frames to contemporary swings that can carry groups of children.

Time spent on playground swing structures is ever-present in our childhood memories, and rightly so. They provide one of the first breakthrough moments in our development. It's where we moved past the dependency of a push from adult hands to daredevil swing-as-high-as-you-can independence. The commercial swing set is still a playground classic, but it's evolved from the traditional swinging seat into other exciting classes. Today, it's possible to swing with friends on the Bird's Nest Swing, on the Cocowave Pendulum, or enjoy the new experience of the Duo Swing, where solo swinging becomes face-to-face fun. And speaking of face-to-face, the You & Me Seat lets two generations enjoy the ride together

Benefits of Playground Swings

Besides being extremely fun, commercial swing sets contribute to essential aspects of motor-skill development. When swinging, children train and improve agility, balance, coordination and spatial awareness - all necessary skills when judging distance and navigating safely in traffic. The swinging movement works the arm, leg and core muscles, and the impact from jumping off increases bone density. Play activity on commercial swing sets also enhances:

Sensory experiences

Swings offer a variety of sensory experiences. They'll feel the wind in their face, experience weightlessness, and hear the sound of the chains creaking.

Social interaction

Commercial playground swings allow children to play and interact with one another, fostering social skills and teamwork.

Versatility

Swings for playgrounds can be used by children of different ages and abilities, making them a popular and inclusive playground feature.

Promotes exercise

Swinging is a low-impact form of exercise that build a child's strength and coordination in an enjoyable way.

Vestibular stimulation

Commercial swing sets provide a repetitive, rhythmic motion that stimulates the inner ear, leading to improved balance and coordination.

Therapeutic value

Playground swing structures can be a therapeutic tool for children with special needs, helping with physical and emotional development.

The motion of swinging requires younger children to anticipate cause and effect and manage rhythms. The height and speed of swinging trains children's judgment of distance and height. These essential cognitive abilities are crucial for a child's development through childhood.

KOMPANs commercial swing sets can be constructed with as many sections as you want. All types of KOMPAN swings are compatible with our frames and come with industry-leading warranties. They are all compliant with industry standards.

How to Choose the Right Commercial Playground Swing

There are a few things to consider when contemplating freestanding playground equipment, such as commercial swing sets.

Age and abilities of users

Choosing a playground swing structure for your public site depends on the key user group and the shape and size of your playground area.

Types of Frames for Swings

The types of swing frames you choose can add an additional element of excitement and novelty for your playground. Although traditionally shaped in the form of an A, modern swings are not limited to this setup and come in a larger and more fun variety.

A-Frame

Available in 6.5 feet and 8 feet height with posts of hardwood or hot dip galvanized steel.

Portal frame

Vertical posts of hot dip galvanized steel or powder coated on a pre-galvanized steel base. Swing frame end connectors and crossbeam of hot dip galvanized steel or powder coated on hot dip galvanized steel base.

Cocowave Pendulum swing

Available in multiple options: untreated Robinia wood, brown pigmented or green colored version, rope or stainless steel chain suspensions, wood inground or steel footings.

Types of Seats for Swings

Seats create an incredible opportunity for choice and individuality – as a single stand-alone or in a mix that best fits your needs. We offer standard swing seats, duo swing seats, baby seats, toddler seats, You & Me seats and bird nests with various diameters.

Standard seat

The standard seat is a classic design that is made from durable commercial-grade materials. It is a great choice for all ages and provides a comfortable and secure place to sit and swing.

Duo seat

The duo seat is designed for two riders and features two seats that are side by side. This is a great option for children who want to swing together or for parents who want to swing with their child.

Baby swing seat

The baby swing seat is designed for infants and features a secure harness that keeps the child safely in place while they swing.

Toddler seat

The toddler seat is designed for young children who are too big for a baby swing seat but not yet ready for a standard seat. It features a secure harness and a smaller seat size to ensure a comfortable and safe ride.

You & Me seat

The You & Me seat is designed for two riders, with one rider facing forward and the other facing backward. This is a great option for parents and children or for friends who want to swing together while facing each other. It typically features a secure harness and a comfortable, ergonomic design that allows for a fun and enjoyable ride. It's a staple for an inclusive playground. All of our products are available with either hot dip galvanized chains or stainless steel chains, with anti-wrap suspensions as an option to prevent the chains from becoming tangled. Select products with low-carbon emissions are available in Greenline versions, made mainly from post-consumer ocean waste.
