As comprehensive as our wooden climbing frames are, sometimes you want to add that little bit extra. Our 2-child back-to-back glider swing is a very popular add-on and is specifically designed for use with our range of frames. The glider swing has two seats, enabling children to sit back-to-back. Children use the hand and foot holds to power themselves. The glider also has the benefit that it can easily be used by a single child.
Swinging develops a child’s core muscles and helps with the development of balance. Swinging stimulates different parts of a child’s brain simultaneously. This is important for development and learning skills such as spatial awareness, rhythm and balance and muscle control. The smooth, back-and-forth motion can be soothing and calming to a child.
Fitting the glider swing
The glider is mounted from 4 points (with our exclusive metal bracket), meaning it actually ‘glides’ back and forth, providing a completely different swinging experience for your children.
This glider swing package comes with metal brackets which are essential for safe use of 2-child glider swings. Ours are manufactured from powder coated steel and are specifically designed for use with our single beam swings measuring 4″ x 6″ (76cm x 133cm). The glider assembly manual can be found here.
