Hanging instructions Child + Board Swings
Swings can be mounted in doorways or/and on beams, ceiling joists, verandas, pergolas and swing stands or the like. Screw 2 screw eyes or eyebolts approx. 500mm apart with the holes in the eyes facing forward. It is important to have the eyes facing forward because then the carbine hook will roll and not grind in the eye. Having the ropes going wider apart as they go up helps the swing to swing strait. Adjust the height with the sliding ropelocks. The swings can be hung from a height of 3 meters without extension ropes
Check the ropes, hooks and eyes regularly for wear and tear. The sun gradually breaks down the fiber in all rope. A safety surface under the swing is recommended.
Where can I hang a swing?
There are many choices for hanging your swing either indoors or outdoors. You will need to be sure that the point of hanging is strong enough for the weight to be used in the swing and there is enough space around the swing for it to operate safely. With the appropriate hardware your swing may be hung from timber, concrete or a tree. Popular choices are inside from the ceiling, verandas, pergolas, trees and existing swing frames.
How can I hang my swing from a tree?
It is important to make sure that the branch you would like to hang the swing from is strong enough to take the weight of the person and the force of swinging. The branch needs to be horizontal to the ground so the swing will swing straight. Solvej Tree Hangers make it easy to hang your swing. Always check the hanging height to ground to make sure the ropes are long enough for the position. Contact Solvej directly to purchase Tree Hangers.
Where can I hang my swing inside?
Inside you will need to hang it from a strong structural point in the ceiling, a beam, rafter or door frame. The safest way is to use 2 stainless steel screw eyes in and clip the swing to these using the stainless steel carbine clips that come with the swing. For specific installation instructions see your swing instructions.
Our canvas is super easy to clean. Spot wash by brushing with a solution of natural soap in lukewarm water. Rinse thoroughly with clean water to remove soap and air dry.
For stubborn stains or suntan lotion, use fabric spot remover according to the remover instructions.
Solution-dyed acrylic does not promote mildew growth. However, mildew may grow on dirt and other foreign substances that are not removed from the fabric. To clean mildew stains, prepare a mild solution of 1 cup
bleach and 2 capfuls of natural soap per gallon of water. Spray on entire area and allow the solution to soak in. If necessary, scrub vigorously with a sponge or clean rag. Sponge thoroughly with clean water and air dry.
For more information and specific stains go to www.sunbrella.com and under outdoor fabric search for cleaning instructions.
Timber naturally goes grey if left outdoors. If you'd like to slow down the greying in the weather, oil often with any suitable non toxic oil. If you are not using your swing for long periods of time we recommend taking it inside to keep it looking great.
This beautiful board swing is for indoors or out.
This swing can be hung from, up to a height of 3.3 metres, without extension ropes (note this is the hanging height not the length of the ropes).
We use an extremely strong 10 mm high performance yachting braid. The Solvej board swing has rounded corners to increase the safety for children playing in the vicinity of the swing in use. (Board swings are not as safe as swings made from softer materials. See our child swings). Stainless steel carbine hooks (eye-bolts not provided) make it very safe and easy to move the swing.
Check the ropes, knots and attachments regularly for evidence of deterioration and replace if weakened. The sun breaks down all rope fibres over time. A safety surface under the swing is recommended. Do not hang over concrete, asphalt or any other hard surface.
Only use under adult supervision.
