Rainbow sturdy swing sets

Big Beam Construction
Rainbow Play Systems are engineered to be rock solid and the foundation of our design is the abundance of big beam construction. Massive 4″ x 4″ & 4″ x 6″ timbers are utilized as structural components.

Notched Beam Construction
Essential for long lasting and durable structure. The notches that are cut into each end of the brace are designed to gain maximum support by bracing wood against wood. This greatly reduces the force on the lag bolt that holds the brace in position.




Rainbow safe swing sets

Vertical Spindle Safety Rails
Parents appreciate vertical slats because they prevent youngsters from climbing upwards. We use thick 2″ x 3″ boards which are attractively turned 90º to permit greater play supervision as well as allowing the natural surroundings behind the play structure to be seen.
