No Weight Limits

Redwood: Strongest For The Longest.
Rainbow constructs its playsets from sustainable Redwood. What makes these beautiful woods best for outdoor playsets? They are strong, dimensionally stable, and resistant to both insects and deterioration. And the exceptional strength of the woods we use make Rainbow Play Systems safe for heavyduty use and kids of all sizes (even Dad). Your Rainbow Playset will be enjoyed for years to come.

Hey Dad - Let's have a Swinging contest!

Massive Big-Beam Construction

Bigger Beams. Our redwood lumber premium grade and is hand selected for each component and dimensionally larger than our competitor's - giving our sets greater stability. We begin with hand-selected, premium timbers that are sawn to be free of "heart center." This promotes stability and reduces warping, twisting, or cracking. We mill our own timbers to be bigger and stronger. Rainbow beams measure up to true construction grade dimensions—we never whittle them down.

Un-level Yard?

Rainbow's Adjustable A-Frame designs makes it easy to install in an un-level yard. The A-frame legs can be moved closer together or spread further out to account for an upward or downward slope! We can even order longer A-Frame Legs for your swingset, or even a longer rockwall.  How about that?

Taller entry

All the entries into a Rainbow Play System are taller than average. This makes getting into the playset much easier. Cheaper sets have less than 20" tall openings, making it almost impossible for larger children and adults to play. Rainbow's 31" tall openings are perfect for all sizes and gives your family the ability to enjoy playing for many years to come without outgrowing your playset.

Notched Angled Safety Braces

Notched redwood braces provide added structural support minimizing the load on hardware and reducing the frequency of maintenance. FIRM & SOLID.

Smooth decks

All of our decks (and all of the wood on our playsets) are sanded smooth nice and safe for your little ones.

Full Dimension Lumber

Full Dimension Lumber, definately not thin inferior lumber. Call it beefier, it makes your playset more solid and rigid. Even dad can play!

Extra Headroom

Did you know that a Rainbow Play System has a lot of Headroom? Perfect for your children, they don't have to worry about where they are standing in the playset to watch out for the roof! Adults who like to play inside the set tell us what a big difference this makes to them.

Heavy-duty hardware

Strongest and Biggest Bolts. Heavy Duty Hardware adds to the Quality construction and the more through-bolts, a more rock-solid feel for superior safety and structural integrity, which also means less maintenance.

Coated Swing Chains

Coated Heavy Duty Swing Chains - Feel our chains and you will see the difference. Extra heavy Plastisol coating over galvanized beefy swing chains means no pinching of little fingers, no rusting and a comfortable grip.

Heavy-Duty Swing Hangers

Heavy-Duty Swing Hangers are a must for all Rainbow Play Systems. Even dad can swing.


With natural, sustainable redwood and aesthetic design, Rainbow Play Systems complements residential settings with unrivaled good looks.
