Take your slide and playground up a notch with the 5-foot Single Straight Slide from playgroundequipment.com. It is moderately sized, providing a taller height for older children, while still being appropriate for all 2 – 12 year old children. Like all other slides on our website, this one has a range of customizable features, and can come in many different colors. All playgroundequipment.com freestanding slides have a set of stairs treated with a non-slip coating, which is especially important with taller slides. There is also a convenient handrail lining the stairs and top deck of the structure. Parents should have no fear as kids climb to the top and survey the action before sliding back down to do it all over again. Make sure to have proper playground surfacing before installing slides or any other playground equipment. Wood mulch or carpet is always a good and cost effective option.
