This swing is made from premium quality oak, handcrafted for years of use.
The swing is suitable for children and adults and add a lovely feature to any garden. They look great personalised with children’s names, house names or sayings e.g. UP UP & AWAY, REACH FOR THE STARS etc.
We use only use prime quality oak that has been thoroughly kiln dried. The medium oak swing is made from one single piece of solid oak and the large from two. All our timber is FSC 100% (Global Forest Certification System) so is all ethically sourced from sustainable forests. (Documentation is available). Each piece of our quality, kiln dried wood is carefully chosen and expertly crafted to make your product. Our swings can be left outside and will remain structurally strong despite any signs of weathering due to the wood’s naturally high levels of tannin.
The ropes are polyhemp which gives very long life whilst being soft on the hands and still retaining that traditional look and feel. We hand splice the ropes to add an additional feature to this attractive swing. they are spliced over seven times on each side and the ends heat sealed to prevent fraying. Braking strain for this rope is 5.5 tonnes and there are two of them – so pretty strong!
The swing comes with solid oak adjusting blocks so that you can easily adjust each rope to make the swing flat and at your desired height from the ground. They also make it very easy to take the swing down if needed. A leaflet will be provided with your order clearly showing you how to hang your swing, explaining the common ways to fix your swing to a branch. It also includes some important safety information.
