1. Swings come in all shapes and colors. We have compiled a list of the most common models:
- Baby swing: It's for the little ones. With high back support, a load-bearing seat and a safety belt, nothing stands in the way of safe enjoyment.
- Lattice swing: With a seat protected by scaffolding, it prevents falling off the swing. It is suitable for small children up to three years of age.
- Classic swing: The standard swing with seat board. It comes as a single or double swing. It is suitable for children of all ages. And sometimes for adults who just want to have some fun.
- Nest swing: For older children who also like to swing together. It offers a large seating area and allows swinging in all directions.
- Modular swing: Not only swinging is possible here. With a built-in slide or climbing frame, a modular swing offers many types of fun.
2. Which material is preferable for a swing for the garden?
- Swing frames come primarily in wood, metal, or plastic. However, the latter should be avoided here. Plastic frames are often not as strong and durable as wood or metal. And since a swing should last through childhood and beyond, it is advisable to choose a solid material.
- Metal swing frames are easier to assemble thanks to their lighter weight. Thanks to the easy-care material and a special coating, a metal swing requires less maintenance than a wooden one. Minor scratches can easily be touched up with some metal paint.
