Rainbow Safety and Design Features: What Makes Rainbows Safer
Rainbow Play Systems is committed to building safe, durable, stable, and fun swing sets. This is what sets us apart from other swing set manufacturers. We put care and attention into the details. Their heavy beam construction, and safe secure hardware are what makes Rainbow the best swing sets.
Rainbow uses the highest quality material, from massive timbers, big beam construction to the safest hardware components. And Rainbow uses heavy duty material, from the thickest canopies, safe ladders, to coated safe handles that protect your children. These safety and design specifications make Rainbow swing sets simply the best.
Big Beam Construction
Rainbow Play Systems are engineered to be rock solid and the foundation of their 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.
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.
Recessed & Safety Capped Hardware
Extra attention to detail and safety includes recessed hardware throughout the play structure. The recessed hole has a routered edge and the bolt is double nutted capped off with an acorn nut.
Massive 1/2″ Hardware
Rainbow’s Castle and Clubhouse feature massive 1/2″ diameter thru-bolt hardware utilized in the entire structure for unparalleled strength and stability.
Dual Bolt Construction Detail
Dual bolted construction detail throughout the play structure creates tremendous rigidity at the connection points for a vastly more stable structure when compared to the single bolt construction used by competitors.
Ladder & Rock Wall Brackets
Used to brace the Ladder and Rock Wall securely to the play structure creating a safe “no lift” design.
Heavy Duty Ductile Iron 360º Tire Swing Swivel
Ductile Iron has more carbon steel than traditional ironand is unmatched in strength. 360º swivel is double bolted and double nutted, includes 3 ultra safe carabiner mountain climbing clips and is backed by Rainbow’s Exclusive Lifetime Warranty.
Super Duty 360º Tire Swing Swivel
Rainbow’s Super Duty 360º Tire Swing Swivel is built with durability and strength beyond compare. It comes equipped with a rubber casing enclosure over the swivel action to keep it free from any entanglements.
Heavy Duty 18 oz. Canopy
Rainbow’s Heavy Duty Canopy offers protection from sun or rain to make everyday a great day to play. Their removable canopy is easy to clean, thicker than most in the industry & manufactured with UV protective material to mitigate fading.
Angled Safety Ladders
Logical safety design in all Rainbow climbing components, the angled ladder design is much easier to climb up & climb down.
Plastisol Dipped Ladder Rungs
Plastisol Dipped Ladder Rungs provide children a better surface to grip with their hands & feet as they climb while reducing slipping. Plastisol is extremely durable & won’t chip or scratch. It also insulates the rungs from the heat or cold.
Plastisol Dipped Safety Handles
Plastisol Dipped Safety Handles reduce slipping as your child pulls themselves up or lowers themselves down. Plastisol is extremely durable & won’t chip or scratch. It also insulates the handles from the heat or cold.
Powder Coated Safety Handles
Powder Coated Safety Handles installed in key areas contribute to a feeling of comfort as a child is gaining access to an entrance or exit on their Rainbow Play System.
Full 1″ Thick Rope
Rainbow only uses 1″ thick rope – no thin 1/2″, 5/8″ or 3/4″ rope. Utilizing a full 1″ diameter rope creates an easy to grab rope, very large knots & eliminates tangling.
Full Bucket Swing
Safely secures little ones in the swing seat. This full bucket design originated in the commercial playground industry and has been used for many decades as the safest possible swing for smaller children.
