Tyre swings have proved to be an extremely popular swing seat, and now we have introduced the Tyre Rope Set which allows you to make your very own Tyre swing from suitable discarded waste tyres.
The rope set includes two poly hemp ropes with galvanised Steel fixings and four specifically designed M10 bolts that are pre attached to the ropes with black plastic welds
To fix the ropes to your tyre simply follow these instructions –
Select a suitable tyre – check the tyre for exposed reinforcing and sharp edges (disguard all damaged tyres)
Thoroughly clean the tyre -Ensure there is no tar, oil or dirt left on the tyre. (normal household cleaners can be used for this)
Drill 4 holes on the side edge of the tyre - normally 12 inches apart in the side wall of the tyre.
Insert the fixing bolt through each of the holes.
Place the washer on the end of the bolt on the underside of the tyre.
Screw on the standard bolt and tighten. Repeat for each of the four bolts.
Attach and tighten the domed locking nut to the end of bolt – this then locks the fixings together so that they cannot work loose.
Then all that remains is to attach the newly constructed tyre swing to your climbing frame and enjoy!

Safety is at the heart of our design specification. From the substantial timber sections used for the frames through to the accessories and fixings, all components meet the stringent EN71 regulations for children’s play equipment. Our standard Climbing Frames Designs are put together in a safe but challenging combination to ensure children are at minimal risk when playing. Our Products are CE marked and meet and exceed all British and European Toy Safety standards BS 5665/ EN71. We strongly recommend that all fixings and fastenings are checked at least annually to ensure they are in good condition and secure.
Action Climbing Frames are made from wood; one of the most environmentally freindly material available. The wood used for our frames is selected top grade pine from forests approved and managed under the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification scheme (PEFC). This guarantees that our products are made with wood from sustainably managed forests. Management of these forests involves protection of the environment, respect for the social rights of local communities and forest workers and economic viability.
The seasoned timber used on all Action Modular Climbing Frames is machined, planed smooth with rounded edges and finished with 1mm tolerances. All fixing holes and nut recesses are pre-drilled. The Timber is pressure treated to preserve its life, using a non-toxic chromium / cadmium / arsenic (CCA) free solution which is approved for children’s playground equipment. Substantial 70mm x 70mm timber sections are used for the frames (ramparts are 90mm x 90mm) and70mm x 90mm timbers are used on all the swing beams.
Wood is a natural product and as such is subject to the influence of the moisture content of the air and ground. Sometimes cracks or splits may appear, but this will not result in weakening of the structural stability. These cracks and splits are minimized by machining into rectangular sections and are more common in round section timber. Knots and grain variations are a normal component of all timber products.
Garden Games Limited and Action limit the use of man made materials wherever possible within the design of our climbing frames. We offer wooden seats, wooden roofs, polyhemp ropes and wooden clatter bridges. We use high quality ASH hardwood rungs on our monkey bars for nonslip all year round. All necessary fixings, fasteners and ropes are included and are either galvanised or stainless steel. Plastic material is used on all our slides to prevent degradation and is tested to ensure that it presents no danger of toxicity.
Installation and Assembly
Before purchasing and installing your climbing frame, measure your space carefully. Add an additional unobstructed perimeter of 1.5m around the frame for safety and access with a clear zone 2.5m in front and behind swings. Your frame should not be placed closer than 2m from any boundary of your property. All sections come flat-packed in manageable packages. Rather than use ground anchors, all structural beams such as frames and swing-arm supports provide an extra 30cm length to be buried in the ground. Building and installing your climbing frame is best done with at least two people. You will also need some tools, in particular a 13mm & 17mm box or socket spanner, cordless drill / screwdriver, level and tape measure. Build times are set out in our product descriptions and assume a reasonably level garden and ground clear of rubble.
Configuration and Warranty
Most of our climbing frames provide more than one configuration. Some changes are easy to achieve, others may require a small amount of input from you. Please contact us if you would like advice regarding major changes. We have the confidence and experience with our products to offer a no-quibble 10 year guarantee against rot and insect infestation on all timber sections. All ropes, accessories, slides and faulty workmanship are guaranteed for 1 year, subject to correct installation and normal use.
