Size & Materials: Our swing seats are made from Ash, which is an incredibly strong and durable wood. Swing seats measure 24” long by 8” wide and a sturdy 1 ¾” thick. Our rope is ¾” diameter light brown polypropylene. This rope is smooth to the touch, shrink, stretch, rot, UV resistant and just generally looks and holds up better than sisal or manila rope.
Care: We recommend that you apply a coat of Thompson’s Weather Sealer each spring to help protect your swing from the elements.
