Commercial Swing Sets for Schools, Churches, Daycares, Parks, Clubs, YMCAs, and HOAs
Swing sets have been a favorite playground equipment and park attraction for children for generations. In fact, swing sets are such an integral part of the play experience, that it’s nearly impossible to envision a proper playground environment WITHOUT swing sets! Swinging is a beautiful combination of leg power, gravity, and physics, and it’s just plain fun for children and adults alike. The Carolina Recreation & Design team are your local experts for everything related to commercial swing sets, and they’re here to take care of you in NC, SC, and VA!
Listen to what some of our many satisfied customers and clients have to say about their experience with
Carolina Recreation & Design
I just built a daycare center and called Carolina Recreation & Design to work with me for playground equipment installation. They were great. The crew they sent out was very professional; they followed the timeline they promised. Great company to work with. The playground they gave me will make a lot of kids happy and safe.
Carolina Recreation & Design was very easy to work with when our neighborhood association decided to upgrade the features at the park. From the initial contact to the final inspection, it was a great all-round experience. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to install a commercial playground in their community.
Our church considers Carolina Recreation & Design a part of our family. They have designed and built three play spaces at our church so far. Carolina Recreation & Design creativity, along with their professionalism, make working with them a joy. The final product is safe, current to industry standards, and, most of all, a fun space for the children. We would recommend Carolina Recreation & Design to anyone interested in upgrading their play spaces.
What’s so great about swing sets? Everything! Swinging isn’t just great fun, it also provides a combination of physical, cognitive, and emotional benefits. Here are just a few ways that playing on a commercial swing set is good for children (and – spoiler alert – swinging is good for adults, too!):
Swinging isn’t just fun; it’s really a great form of exercise. Swinging actually burns as many calories as jogging, to the tune of around 200 calories per hour!
Swinging is a great way to exercise the whole body. It’s a low-impact workout which strengthens muscles, tendons, joints, and ligaments. Swinging also helps to develop balance and strengthen the core.
Swinging isn’t just about working the legs, arms, and torso. It also helps to grow fine motor skills including finger coordination and grip strength. This is of particular benefit to children who are learning to write.
Swinging helps with sensory integration including spatial awareness, which is particularly important for young children or children with developmental challenges. The rocking motion of swinging also stimulates the cerebral cortex – the part of the brain that helps you focus. Playing on a swing set is one effective way to help children be more focused and ready to learn after recess.
While swings can certainly be enjoyed individually, children often gravitate towards swing sets in pairs or groups. Sometimes they play games while swinging beside each other. Other times, a child will push a friend on the swing while waiting his/her turn. In both cases, positive social skills are learned and reinforced!
Adults aren’t the only ones who get stressed; modern children experience more stress than many people realize. The peaceful, rocking motion of swinging is a great way to help children to relax and unwind.
Swinging is a great way to combine play, exercise, and relaxation. Children who exercise regularly in this manner tend to have healthier immune systems and also find it easier to fall asleep at night.
In pretty much every way that swings sets are good for children, they’re good for adults, too! Commercial swing sets from Carolina Recreation & Design come in an array of age-appropriate designs for little ones, but our swings are also rugged and sturdy enough to be enjoyed by adult-sized people, as well. You aren’t limited to just watching your children swing; you can get in there and swing with them, too!
A swing set is a swing set, right? Not at all! Thanks to modern design, engineering, and materials, there are more options than ever before when it comes to commercial swing sets. Here are just a few of the quality swing product options we have to offer you, thanks to our partnership with Playcraft Systems:
Our traditional swings are an old-time classic that utilizes modern design. We’ve taken the fun from the past and brought it into the present with updated materials, design, and durability. Features a sturdy tripod design, slash-proof belt seats, and 2-3/8”-diameter galvanized steel upright posts.
Tire swings are great for promoting cooperation and encouraging socialization. Children can take turns pushing and pulling each other in fun and dynamic ways, in any direction. These tire swings accommodate up to three children per tire for interactive play. The rotomolded tire is crafted to sustain massive use, and the swing is fortified by a heavy-duty 7-millimeter galvanized chain.
The more the merrier with our disc swings! Suitable for kids 5 and up, these swings offer collaborative fun for up to four users. With a seat diameter of 45 inches, the disc swing is made of UV-stabilized rotomolded plastic, and includes a soft rubber safety bumper on two sides. The swing hangs from 8’-tall uprights with a double powder-coated, baked-on finish. This freestanding swing is expandable, and can also be mixed & matched with other swings we offer.
Our arch swings are made of ultra-heavy gauge 3.5” or 5” powder-coated metal swing beams and archer. Thinking about upgrading your swing set in the future? The modular design of these arch swings pairs well with our other add-a-bay products, so there are multiple combination possibilities.
The single post swings are made to conserve space in the play area. These make a great addition to any playground.
These toddler T-swings are perfectly designed for younger children. By adding this swing to your playground, you’ll be allowing these little ones to know the joy that only swinging can bring!
Gently pushing your child from behind is a thing of the past with our Playshare swings. Now parents can get on the swinging action with this specially-designed, two-seat swing. The adult controls the motion, while the child gets to experience the ride!
