As a common outdoor playground equipment, slide set is loved by children. At present, there are two kinds of slide set on the market, one is made of plastic, the other is made of wood. So what's the difference between these two kinds of slide sets? The following content will introduce their differences from various aspects.


The Difference in Safety

Wooden slide set is more environmentally friendly than plastic slide set. Wood is a kind of natural material, which has the characteristics of natural texture, beautiful appearance, good hand feeling and easy processing. Wood is non-toxic and will not cause harm to children's health.


Many people will worry about the damage of plastic slide set to children's health. In fact, the plastic that regular manufacturers used to make slide sets is LLDPE. This is a food grade colored plastic, non-toxic and tasteless, will not harm the health of children.


The Difference in Appearance

As the main material of wooden slide set is wood, the overall style of wooden slide set is more exquisite than plastic slide set, and its unique appearance attracts many children. The design of wooden slide set is very attractive and can satisfy children's curiosity about new things. For kindergarten, community, park and other different occasions, manufacturers can customize different styles of wooden slide set, so that it can be perfectly integrated into the surrounding environment, and even become a distinctive sign.


The plastic slide set can also be customized according to the different needs of customers, so that it has a novel shape, bright color and changeable style. The plastic slide set can be made into small animal model, plant model, pirate ship model and so on.


The Differences in Structure and Workmanship

The structure of wooden slide set is similar to that of plastic slide set.


The wooden slide set requires very high manufacturing technology for each component, generally made of African teak or Russian willow. Before sculpting the wood, we must use advanced technology to deal with the wood in a variety of complex ways, so that it can be carbonized and dehydrated, so that the wood can meet the requirements of anti-corrosion and anti-moth, anti-fire and anti-mildew.


In the process, the metal parts of the plastic slide set are treated with antirust and then painted to enhance its antirust performance. The slide platform is made of stamping carbon steel plate, and its surface is drilled with small holes to prevent slipping.


The Difference in Service Life

The plastic slide set has a strong anti-corrosion and waterproof ability, and is very durable. 


The service life of the wooden slide set is not shorter than that of the plastic slide set, because the wooden material has been specially treated in the early manufacturing process of the wooden slide set. Under normal circumstances, it is only necessary to paint the wooden slide set once or twice a year to form a protective film on its surface, so as to extend its service life.


The Difference in Price

The slide set is generally installed in outdoor playgroundindoor playground and other fancy kids playground. People who buy slide sets are usually investors of amusement park, estate developers, etc. At present, the wooden slide set on the market will be more expensive than plastic slide set, but the specific price needs to be determined according to the specific situation.
