Vuly is an Australian brand that sells products internationally, including in the USA. Swing sets are one of Vuly's signature toys, and there's definitely some variety to choose from!
Vuly produces elegant swing sets made from galvanized and powdered steel - which keeps frames in top condition for years to come - making sure that they have UV and rust protection. Every product Vuly produces is vigorously tested by water, UV exposure as well as physical strain.
One of Vuly's main principles is safety. All of Vuly's swing sets are made with safety at front of mind. Vuly is also known for entrepreneurship. Vuly's swingsets try to incorporate new and unique designs that can't be found in other brands. These include such swings as their 360 spin swing, which allows kids to simulate a skateboard half pipe; and hanging cubby swing, where kids can enjoy Vuly's swinging experience while tucked away in a comfortable cubby.
Gorilla Playsets is a company based in Georgia, USA. They sell their own branded swing sets as well as swing sets from Swing-n-Slide.
Gorilla Playsets make a variety of playsets and swing sets mostly from cedar wood and plastic. They claim that the cedar wood naturally reduces rot, insect damage and mildew. They also take care to use recessed bolts and rounded corners on all structures for added safety.
Most of their equipment has 2 floors, allowing kids to scale various climbing features, play in the upper levels, and slide back down.
Their playsets are generally larger and therefore support greater weight. On the flip side, they cost significantly more and it means you need more space in the backyard.
Although Gorilla Playsets offers many types of swing sets, they are pretty standard, and what you would expect from a typical children's playground.
The medium swing set is the smallest and cheapest wing set offered by Vuly. It has 2 swing attachments and has attachments like basketball hoops and soccer goals which can be purchased separately. The swings themselves are completely customizable, with 9 different swings to choose from!

Similar to Vuly's mediums wing set, the large swing set has a very similar linear build. However, instead of 2 swings, this one has the capacity for 3. Again, the swings are completely customisable. There are 9 options to choose from including monkey swings, cubby swings and 360 spins wings.

Once fully built, it stands at Dimensions: 19'W x 11'H x 14'D.
Due to the modular nature of Vuly's products, the 360 Pro Max Swing Set allows for up to 6 swing attachments, in addition to a cubby sand pit. The configuration is available to both linear and L shape designs to fit any backyard.
In the linear arrangement, Vuly's ultimate swing set stands at dimensions: 7'4" H, 6'10" W & 35'9" L.
