The See Saw is one of the most classic and popular stand-alone items for a playground. Appropriately, the price point and the simplicity of this design make this one of our most popular choices for a see saw. It is offered in 2, 4, 6, 8, or 12 seats to fit your next project.
This see saw is constructed with functionality and lasting durability in mind. Likewise, the galvanized steel frames are supported by a 2-3/8 inch O.D. pipe frame with polyethylene plastic seats.
You might be asking yourself why galvanizing steel is important?
Bare steel will rust almost immediately if left bare. Galvanizing protects steel from rusting by forming a protective barrier between the steel and the environment, just like paint does. But galvanizing goes further than that; it also provides sacrificial protection of the steel. Steel is more electro-negative than zinc; that is, steel will attract electrons from the zinc. This electronic flow from the zinc to the steel reduces the corrosion rate of the steel, while increasing that of the zinc. Therefore, the zinc coating is “sacrificed” to prevent the corrosion of the steel at breaks in the zinc surface. Galvanizing protects the steel even when the coating is damaged.
With all of this in mind, this see saw will offer years of maintenance-free use.
Note that shock absorbing tires are required to be installed underneath each see saw seat to prevent injuries. Tires are not included.
