Swing Set or Playset Swing Hangers Comparison
What are the major differences between the Standard Swing Hangers & the Heavy Duty Swing Hangers?
A picture is worth a thousand words.....or maybe more than a 1000lbs in this case. Below are the two most common swing hangers that are used in building today's swing set or playset.
Standard Swing HangerThis swing hanger is rated at 250 lbs per hanger. There is one bolt hanger per chain and two per swing position. Therefore it should easily hold up to 500lbs without any problem. (Assuming the chain, swing and beam can accommodate that weight as well)
Heavy Duty Swing Hangers
This setup is made up of two bolts and one iron ductile swing hangers. Each hanger can accommodate 800 lbs and there are two per swing position, one for each chain. More than 1,500 lbs can be easily accommodated, but usually the limiting factor is the swings' chain or the swing itself. If adults are going to use the swing, it is recommended that these heavy duty swing hangers also be used.
