As a child grows and moves into the flat or strap type swing seat, developing a good swinging technique is generally easier with chains. This is because the user is not merely holding on to the chain, rather they must grip and pull on the chain very hard as they manipulate their bodyweight in order to accelerate the swing.
Although this sounds counterintuitive, rope is actually a lot less pleasant on the hands than chain is when it is being gripped and worked in this manner and can be slippery when wet.
If your chain is required for an Early Learning or Childcare centre, we can supply our Public Use Chain, designed specifically for this age group to minimise any finger entrapment hazard. Due to its size, profile and quality finish, this chain also has a very smooth, comfortable grip.
In fact, all of the chain products we supply have been specifically manufactured for playground use. It comes down to personal preference. Some like the feel of the plain galvanised chain, while others prefer the smooth feel and colours of the powder coated chain We even have stainless steel chain for uncompromising strength and good looks…the choice is yours!
