At Gorilla Playsets we use only the finest hand selected lumber available. Our lumber comes from “Certified” forests which have been approved to be harvested and replanted so that these resources remain sustainable.
Lumber Curing Process
Our lumber that is used on a playset is kiln dried to insure longevity. It is dried by this process two times, to assure stability and to maintain the integrity of the wood. This process minimizes shrink, warp and cupping.
What we're Made of...
Most of our Play Systems are made with Cedar. Similar to redwood, Cedar is naturally resistant to rot, decay, and insect damage - all while offering an affordable, naturally resistant option in backyard fun.
All Cedar Play Systems receive a factory applied stain/sealant to protect the lumber. Some of our Play Systems feature our maintenance-free Timber Shield protective poly coating. These attractive, splinter-free, timbers are coated with a thick, green, polyethylene casing that shields the wood from the weather, making them virtually maintenance free.
