Alternative to wooden play frame?

We are planning to get a playframe for our garden with swings, slide, rope ladder etc.

Everything I've seen is wooden.
We have had quite a few wasps nests and the wasps have stripped wood from our garden furniture for their nests in the past so we want materials that won't attract wasps and will also be long-lasting.

Can anyone recommend any playframes made of metal/stainless steel?

I had this as a child www.tptoys.com/m/climb/climb_and_slide/tp_explorer2_frame_platform_and_den_crazywavy_slide_and_jungle_run.htm
It was good fun and we had a swing from the centre.

I second the TP range. We have the one linked above, got it 2nd hand 7 years ago and still looks fine, just a little rust around a couple of the bolts.

We took the den/tent off though as the kids were less than keen on the spiders.

If you've got younger children you can start off with it at half height and ass the legs as they grow. That said our youngest was 3 and we went straight to full height.
