Designed with safety in mind
We originally designed Gorilla Gym for our own children. Safety has always been our primary consideration. Gorilla Gym is made with a heavy-duty steel frame, the vise grips and stabilizers are injection molded with special PA 6 material (strong, elastic nylon plastic). It is extremely sturdy and has been certified for up to 300 lbs and weight test at several times the recommended user weight limit (see video).
Certified to Relevant ASTM Safety Standards
You’ll be happy to know that Gorilla Gym and all the attachments have passed the tough safety standards of ASTM, the world’s largest developer of safety standards for exercise and children’s exercise products. We tested Gorilla Gym to both ASTM F2276-2010 – Standard Specification for Fitness Equipment and the relevant parts of ASTM F: 1148 – 09 Standard Consumer Safety Performance Specification for Home Playground Equipment.
The safety tests include a rigorous process of testing for various considerations, including spacing between adjacent swing elements, hooks, head and neck clearance, hangers, minimum ground clearance, endurance testing, as well as tests for lead and Phthalate content.
Use common sense
As with every exercise equipment, common sense and adult supervision is required. Just like you watch your kids on the playground outdoors, you should monitor and ensure the safe play of your kids at home. This way you can enjoy their peals of laughter as they safely swing and climb for hours.
