My swings are made from premium quality Accoya*, handcrafted for years of use and available in 2 sizes, medium and large.
These swings are 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.
I only use prime quality (no knots or splits) Accoya that has been thoroughly kiln dried. All my timber is FSC 100% (Global Forest Certification System) and is ethically sourced from sustainable forests. (Documentation is available).
*Accoya® is wood, but not as you know it. It is modified timber in which a process called acetylation, a cutting-edge patented technology, enables it to resist rot, defy the elements and stay strong for decades. Guaranteed for 50 years above ground and 25 years in ground or freshwater, its performance and properties are remarkable and suitable for a multitude of uses from joinery for the home to bridges submerged in water.
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!
Large = 80cm (31.5 inches) length x 28cm (11 inches) width x 4.5cm (1.75 inches) thickness. 8 metres (26.25 ft) of 24mm ( 1 inch) rope
Medium = 65cm (25.5 inches) length x 20cm (8 inches) width x 4.5cm thickness. 6 metres (19.69 ft) of 20mm (0.75 inch) rope.
RING END FITTINGS – Marine grade stainless steel fittings for our swings.
My ring end fittings make hanging or taking down the swings quick and easy. This optional extra involves splicing a steel ring to the end of each of the hanging ropes, two additional rings and two carabiners so all you need to do is wrap the rope three or more times around the branch and attach back onto the rope as shown in the image.
If you purchase the swing with plain ends all you will need to do is tie the ends to a suitable branch using a bowline knot (a quick search on YouTube will give you plenty of help and advice about securing your swing plus I will send a leaflet with your order as well explaining the usual ways of fixing your swing to a branch which includes some important safety information.
