What Makes for the Best Cedar Wood Outdoor Playsets?

Only The Best In Cedar Wood Playsets

The best outdoor playsets are made from 100% natural cedar.

Why cedar wood playsets and swing sets are the best

1. Durability

All cedars are conifer trees, a highly revered, durable lumber species that is naturally resistant to rot, decay and insects. University studies show cedar has high durability to outdoor applications, which plays a big factor in our outdoor playsets being the best.

2. Beauty

Aesthetically, there really is no substitute for the natural beauty of cedar. Ingrained with decidedly crisp, yet superbly rich, tonal properties, cedar enhances traditional outdoor home decor and inspires innovative eye-pleasing architecture.

3. Sustainability

Independent studies prove that when it comes to environmental performance, natural cedar is exceptional to synthetic products in every way. While other building materials generate greenhouse gases, cedar actually removes greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. And unlike plastics and vinyl, cedar is renewable & biodegradable. Plus, cedar is sourced from the most sustainably managed forests in the world.

Rainbow is dedicated to being environmentally responsible by teaming up with SFI-certified mills that harvest utilizing the Sustainable Forestry Initiative. Supporting these sustainable initiatives is one of the reasons we offer truly the best outdoor playsets.

Types of cedar wood in our playsets:

  • Cunninghamia Lanceolata: Grown and harvested in China, this is a prized species and is renowned for its durability for hundreds of years in outdoor applications.
  • Thuja Plicata: Also known as the western red cedar, this is the premier species in North America for decking, fencing, gazebos, patio furniture and wooden swing sets. This species has a track record of success for hundreds of years in outdoor applications.
  • Cupressus Nootkatensis: USA-grown cedar that is parallel in beauty, quality and outdoor durability to western red cedar and is the perfect lumber species for manufacturing Rainbow Play Systems. Rainbow celebrates over a quarter-century of proudly manufacturing our Play Systems from the best lumber species available, 100% natural Cedar.
