Modern backyard swing sets and play structures are so large that many people assume they are inherently stable.
While they are designed to be safe and secure, you may not realize with most play structures that they do not simply sit on top of the ground; they are actually connected to the ground in some way.
Most play structures available for DIY installation at home use twisted ground anchors to secure the unit to the ground. Play structures that are installed by professionals may use these same ground anchors or they may use other things, such as rebar, to secure play structures to the ground.
For Safety – Yes
At Level Dry, we believe that the most important feature of a swing set is safety for your kids.
Without safety, even the best swing set will not provide what you think you are purchasing – a secure backyard play space for your children.
We also believe that, while typical ground stakes may be good enough to provide safety in some circumstances, if you want to really ensure safety and stability, you are going to want to use rebar stakes to secure your play structure to the ground.
While many swing set manufacturers do not include stakes in their design plans or in their materials, our Level Dry system is designed to work with rebar stakes for maximum safety and stability. In fact, we pack rebar stakes with our starter sets for your convenience, or you can buy them separately.
Rebar Swing Set Anchors Benefits
You may wonder – why do we think rebar is important for the structural stability of swing sets?
Well, rebar, which is just a steel bar, is used in a wide variety of building projects to provide strength and stability to other materials. As we all know, steel itself is a very strong and stable material, and the most common place you might not expect to find rebar is in your sidewalks, as it is used all the time to strengthen concrete.
Rebar swing set anchors have become the industry standard for a number of reasons:
- First, it is stronger than fiberglass or steel cables
- Second, rebar is a surprisingly affordable option
- Third, rebar swing set anchors act as reinforcers, reducing movement which reduces wear and tear on soft materials like wood and vinyl
- Fourth, rebar swing set anchors provide structural stability as they anchor deep in the ground, which is especially useful for rainy or muddy days
- Bonus reason, our Level Dry system works well with rebar swing set anchor stakes
