How to Buy the Right Swing for Your Playground

/ / Playgrounds

Installing a swing in your commercial playground is a great way to appeal to all age groups in the community, but how do you go about it?

In this article we’ll help you determine how to buy the right swing for your playground, and how the team at Kidzspace can help.

What to Consider When Buying Swings For Your Playground

Installing a swing in your commercial playground might seem like a simple endeavour, but there are actually a number of things you need to consider when making sure it fits your playground for purpose.

In this section, we’ll go through some of the most important things you need to think of:

Size & Space Available

Determining the space you have available for equipment like swings for swing sets will help narrow down which playground equipment is right for your design.

For instance, if your playground is on the smaller side, you might opt for your standard twin swing set, but if it’s larger, you might be able to get away with something more adventurous.


How the swing will be used, and even how often it will be used is something you also need to think of. Think of how it will be used, by who and when?

Age Group

What age group will your playground (and therefore your swing) cater for? If you want to appeal to a vast range of children, you may opt for a couple of different types of swings, but if your age range sits on the younger side, a more traditional swing set may be just what you’re after.


When designing any type of playground, safety is paramount, and much of that comes down to the type of equipment (in this case: swings) you opt for. Will your average child be able to use this equipment safely, or are there certain hazards you need to be aware of (and can circumvent by choosing another option)?

Quality & Durability

When choosing the right play equipment or swings for your playground, you want to ensure the product is quality and durable. In most cases, whatever you choose will need to be able to withstand a lot of wear and tear, and even stand up to a variety of weather conditions.

(This is something you can be certain of when you work with Kidzspace.)
