Outdoor Play Sets

by Aiden Chen Wooden Swing Set is Best Game

An Outdoor Play Sets are a structure, which is erected outside to enable playing on and around for children. Towers, bridges, ladders, sandboxes, slides, swings and monkey bars comprise the typical components of an outdoor play set. 

 

A major component of an outdoor play set is a tower. It is a vertical structure, having one or more decks, placed at different levels. A deck is basically a horizontal play surface, which is either contained within or attached to a tower. 

 

Bridges act as connectors between different towers to enable children to walk through them. They are of two kinds, fixed bridges or chain bridges. 

 

Rope ladders and fixed ladders are the most common essentials for play sets. Slides and sandboxes often accompany an Outdoor Play Sets. Playground slides may be covered or uncovered. 

 

Free-standing Swing Sets also form a primary requirement of an outdoor play set, since swings are mounted on them. Besides bridges, monkey bars also act as a connecting medium for towers. 

 

Numerous materials are opted for surfacing the ground around a play set. Sand, pea gravel, wood chips, shredded rubber, rubber mulch and asphalt are some of them. The perimeter of the play yard is built from concrete or wood material. 

 

The surfacing depth of the play area must be done on the basis of CPSC recommendation for the type of surface material and maximum possible fall height. 

 

Rubber mulch is a type of mulch, which is made from recycled rubber. It is mainly used in gardens and for the purpose of sustainable landscaping. It consists of waste tire buffings or nuggets of synthetic rubber. 

 

Both the nuggets and buffings insulate the soil from heat, permitting a two or three degree Fahrenheit higher soil temperature difference over wood mulch. For this reason, it is widely used in playgrounds as a surfacing material. 

 

It is non-porous and doesn't absorb water penetrating through the soil, hence is beneficial for soil moisture. Its elasticity renders it a springy quality, making it an ideal choice for playgrounds, where the extra springiness provides safety for children, if they fall off from any play set component.
