We use much thicker, stronger, heavier rated chain than you will find just about anywhere else. The chain is rated nearly twice as strong as the standard double loop chain. We also include a very heavy duty set of metal swing-mate springs for a more superior strength and smoother swinging weight distribution. Assembly hardware included totals nearly a $50 value. Heavy duty springs and chain are both rated to hold over 800 pounds.
Our rope is made to look like manilla rope, but because it is poly rope it will not mildew or rot. It is 3/4 inch thick, and is rated stronger than our heavy duty chain. We will provide you with plenty of rope so that you can tie it and hang it from a 10 foot height. Please let us know if you are planning on hanging it from a point higher than 10 feet above the ground. The additional cost of adding rope to your order is $30.
The foam inserts are 2” thick, and provide relaxing and firm support. The Dryfast foam is suited to outdoor use where moisture and precipitation are prevalent (it is even suitable for marine cushioning). The large, open cells provide a degree of airflow not present in other foams, allowing it to dry quickly, even after complete saturation. The Dryfast foam formula is anti-microbial and helps suppress microorganism growth, common in damp areas.
The Victorian Cedar Swing Bed is designed to never go out of style. The seat is wide and comfortable, with the 2 inch thick seat pad, and the Victorian style back is made from wide boards for a refined look. Hang it from either 2 or 4 points to create that special spot to lay back and enjoy your yard or garden.
Cedar has beautiful color and ages well to give years of service from your porch swing. This swing is built from real cedar wood from 2 X 4 and 2 X 3 lumber for a sturdy construction that will remain functional for years.
The high-quality seat pad cushion is designed to stand up to harsh weather conditions without fading, staining or developing mildew. The covers come in three colors, Red, Blue and Ivory (see picture below for details) and are removable and washable, while the thick 2” foam insert provides luxurious, comfortable support. Each cushion has long ties to assist in attaching it to your swing bed. Further details are below.
After about 45 minutes of assembly, your new swing bed will be complete. After you complete the assembly with the hardware and instructions that we provide for you, all that is left to do is pick a spot to hang your swing.
We offer either heavy duty chain with springs or tough, durable rope with which to hang your swing. Chain is the standard option supplied, rope can be added to your shopping cart if you prefer that. You can read more about these options below, and check out our pictures below.
If you would like your swing bed made with ALL STAINLESS STEEL HARDWARE, we can do that for you. All screws, bolts, washers, nuts as well as the hanging chain (if that is your hanging option), will be stainless steel. The OPTIONAL additional cost for this is $60.
At your request we can add a cupholder to each arm (see the picture to the right for details). The additional cost for a pair of cupholders is $25.
These can be added to your shopping cart above, once you have selected your swing bed.

If you would like, we will finish your swing bed with a durable cedar wood stain and water sealant. This treatment will bring out the color in your arbor swing and drastically slow down the natural cedar aging process. The OPTIONAL additional cost for stain and water sealant treatment on this item is $60. See the picture to decide if you want your order to be natural or stained cedar.
