Freestanding Play Events

Swings, Climbers, Motion Toys and More

It wouldn’t be childhood without them

Some things will never go out of style as long as kids are still kids―this includes swings, monkey bars, sand play, balance beams, teeter totters and freestanding slides.

Though the basic design of these traditional play components remains the same, Henderson has improved on the safety and durability of our traditional equipment over the years, giving you the same quality customers have come to expect from Henderson.

Our traditional play equipment features the same high-quality materials found in our modular playground equipment, including Allied Flo-Coat® galvanized steel tubes, top-quality powder-coat paint finishes, and stainless steel hardware.

All Henderson playground products are designed to meet or exceed the current CAN/CSA Z614, ASTM F1487 and CPSC standards. Henderson is an active participant on both the CAN/CSA Z614 and ASTM F1487 standards.

Henderson’s experienced playground consultants are just a phone call or e-mail away. Call 1-800-265-5462 or email to get your playground project started.

Choose from many different types of freestanding play events. Perfect on their own or great additions to any playground or playspace.

Commercial Swings

Swings keep children physically active while having a great time. The turn-taking, cooperation, sharing and problem solving that happen naturally at the swing set are important lifelong skills. And so are the lessons in friendship learned while friends (literally) hang out together at the swings.

Henderson offers traditional tripod-style swings and modern arch swings in heavy duty and standard grades, 8′ and 10′ heights, and with any number of bays or half-bays, thanks to our Extend-A-Bay™ and Extend-A-Half-Bay™ options. We also offer commercial tire swings, single post swings and t-frame swings, for something a little different in your playground.
