Who is King Swings Commercial?
Using the words “affordable” and “commercial playground equipment” in the same sentence usually results in a phrase like, “I wish there were affordable commercial playground equipment options.” Another popular phrase is, “How can I find affordable commercial playground equipment?”
We get it. You may be a small daycare, a medium-sized private school with tight budgets, or a church that wants a playground but not an overpriced one. In fact, if you are reading this, there is a good chance you were voted onto a “Playground Committee” and feel overwhelmed with all the results Google produced.
You could also be a small city park looking to add some fun to a public area or a property manager who notices the children are getting into trouble and want to provide the families in your building with something the children are encouraged to climb on. You never bought a playground before and are unsure what codes the playground must abide by to fit into your project.
Whatever your situation, you do know that you need a high-quality commercial playground that you know will pass inspection but not shatter your budget for the year.
We at King Swings Commercial hear you. That is why we are pleased to share our affordable commercial playgrounds with you. Our playgrounds are made in the USA and are manufacturer direct. This allows us to offer our handmade commercial playgrounds at a reasonable price with no middlemen driving up your cost.
What are our playgrounds made out of?
The structural strength of our playgrounds comes from pressure-treated Georgia Yellow Pine, and this wood has a lifetime warranty against rot, decay, and insect damage.
The wood is then inserted into a vinyl sleeve. This protects the wood from the elements and provides a durable, attractive, splinter-free finish. The vinyl can be white or ivory in color.
The metal brackets are powder-coated, stainless steel. Swing chains are made of stainless steel. The ballisters and tower braces are made out of poly lumber. Our commercial roofs are poly board and cut out on our CNC router.
The decking on our towers, ramps, and the backing of our climbers is TrexⓇ decking. These deck boards won’t wrap, sprinter, or rot. As a bonus, they are made from 95% recycled materials.
How and where are the playgrounds made?
Our playgrounds are made in Parkesburg, PA. Our local Amish craftsmen assemble each set here in our manufacturing facility. We take great pride in their hard work and effort in crafting high-quality products.
King Swings Commercial playgrounds are an Amercian product. Our Avalanche slides are made not far from our Parkesburg location, and TrexⓇ is a tremendous Amercian-made product. The vinyl over our lumber is made in the USA. Our deluxe toddler swings, Beuta border, and open spiral slides are rotationally molded in Strasburg, PA.
Our playgrounds meet or exceed ASTM standards, are designed by certified playground safety inspectors, and are delivered and installed by our in-house crews.
How did King Swings Commercial get started?
King Swings Commercial had its genesis in Lancaster County, PA, when Ben King started making residential playground equipment in his barn. The company has grown considerably under Elmer King, Ben’s son, and King Swings is now turning its proven product and processes to the commercial world.
King Swings has spent more than 30 years working with families in the residential sector. We learned much about what people like and didn’t like in a playground purchasing journey. We are taking what we learned and applying it to the commercial world.
King Swings and Kings Swings Commercial are Amish owned. The manufacturing team is majority Amish, and the office team is majority “English,” as the Amish say. It is that unique blend of hard-working-get-it-done attitude and modern playground designs that meet code that makes King Swings Commercial unique.
What separates us from the others?
Here is what we believe separates us from our competition:
- Transparent Pricing – We display the playground cost without any gimmicks or tricks. No red sales text, no slash-through pricing, just a fair price on a playground. Each playground has a pricing pdf of common playground surfacing and swing beam packages pairing so you understand your cost well.
- Delivered and Installed – We don’t outsource our delivery and installation. Our manufacturing bays build your playground, load it onto our equipment, and our crews take it out and install it for you.
- Enjoyable Process – We take great pride in our process. From sales to customer service, we are in it to make this project as easy and stressless as possible for you. We understand that you may have a thousand questions, and that’s ok. Fire away. That is what we are here for.
King Swings Commercial believes that getting commercial playground equipment can and should be easy and enjoyable. If you are overwhelmed, please send us an email or pick up the phone and give us a call at 717-687-8210 or email Blake at [email protected].
