Selwood Monkey Bar Swings

The swing beams can either be a single beam or a monkey ladder swing. The single beam means that it has one purpose, which is to support the swings. The monkey bar ladder swing has two functions: to support the swings and also is a monkey bar. The monkey bar ladder swing provides the perfect opportunity for your children to test their limits and see how far they can swing. These swings are great to help build your child’s upper body strength.

Monkey Bar Safety Notice: We advise Swings & Swing Accessories should be removed from a combination monkey bar swing before using it as a monkey bar.


Seat Positions: 

The Swing beams can either have enough room for two swing positions or three.

Please note: None of our frames come with a one position swing beam. In order to have a one-position swing beam you will have to manually shorten the beam by measuring up the length equally on both sides of the beam and sawing it.


Swing Features:

We have three different products available for the swings,

Belt Swing: They are made from supple, flexible plastic which wraps around the hips and provides comfort and support for your child as they swing. The plastic is UV-resistant, meaning it won’t fade in the sun and the ropes are soft to the touch so even your littlest little one can swing away to their heart’s content, without fear of hurting their hands.

Trapeze Bar: This link takes you to the swing sets which include trapeze bars that are made of the highest quality metal, plastic and rope, and are guaranteed to last, long after your children grows out of the swing set!
