This new patent-pending new generation swing is unique to anything now being sold in the playground industry. The dimensions of the seat are 24” x 6” x 5/16” or 28 ¼” hanger to hanger. The hangers are stainless steel. It is made of EPDM rubber over Kevlar. It has a Kevlar insert instead of a steel insert. Kevlar is the same material being used in body armor. It is cut resistant and stronger and lighter than steel. You need to use an H172 shackle to connect the swing to the chain. We have tested this swing to 10,000 pounds tensile strength. Kevlar is not sharp if the seat is worn or vandalized. The swing also has stainless steel hangers. If you have a high use, high vandalism area, this is the swing for you. Since it will last so long, it will save you costs overall in labor and replacement swings. Since we believe this swing is so much better than any other in the marketplace, we are offering a five-year unconditional guarantee for this swing.
EPDM: Ethylene-propylene-diene-monomer is a synthetic rubber material which helps prevent crazing, cracking and oxidizing. Natural rubber is often made from recycled tires etc., and you are never sure what the actual rubber mixture is. It often wears off on children’s clothes. It cracks and crazes, making the seat unsightly and allowing moisture to get into the seat. This makes the seat deteriorate at a much quicker rate. Our seats are made of EPDM rubber that is made especially for our swing seats. The rubber does not rub off on children’s clothes, and the seats last much longer than natural rubber swings. Unlike seats made of polymer, seats made of EPDM rubber hold up well in extreme temperatures, both very hot and very cold.
