The Accoya Tree Swing – Available in a range of different colours!
The Accoya tree swing is a brand new swing for 2017 made from the extremely durable, dimensionally stable and sustainable Accoya®! Just as durable (if not more so) as the finest tropical hardwoods Accoya is the perfect timber for making a long lasting tree swing from. The Accoya tree swing can be painted in a range of various colours, perfect for matching to a colour theme in the garden or even your house!
We chose to make our brand new range of tree swings from Accoya® for many different reasons. Accoya is made using FSC certified softwood. The timber grows quickly making it a sustainable eco-friendly product . The softwood then goes through a non-toxic process called acetylation. This process changes the structure of the soft wood, making it just as durable and long lasting as many hardwoods. Accoya is increasingly be used more and more in building and joinery applications, and is perfect for making long lasting tree swings with!
The Seat itself
Handcrafted in our workshop in the heart of Suffolk, every one of our swings are made to the highest quality. The Accoya tree swing is planed and finished to a thickness of 48mm (similarly to our Woodland swings). The seat has a generous rounding on all edges making it comfortable to use. Accoya is slightly lighter than Oak whilst being just as strong, making the swing perfectly suitable for children to enjoy safely. But why should the children have all of the fun? Our Accoya tree swings are more than suitable enough for the ‘bigger kids’ (the adult’s) amongst us to have a good old swing, or gentle sway on.
Accoya tree swings are available in 3 different sizes, from Child to Adult. The sizes available ensure there is a swing suitable for every member of the family to enjoy. Bespoke sizes are also available, just give us a call to discuss your requirements – 01449 741744
Child: 550 x 200mm Midi: 650 x 200mm Adult: 750 x 200mm
Alike all of our other tree swings, Accoya tree swings incorporate synthetic hemp ropes. These ropes are made by the Master Ropemakers at the historic dockyard in Chatham. Synthetic hemp is soft and comfortable to hold, as well as being extremely strong. Unlike natural hemp, synthetic hemp rope wont rot, meaning many years of fun using the swing. Each hanging rope is cut and spliced by hand in our workshop to your desired length. These can be fitted to the seat with large round knots, or a fine spliced loop.
Accoya tree swings are perfect for having personalised with letter carving. A special message, name, phrase or date can be carved onto the front, rear, top or bottom of the swing, creating a truly unique product. If there is a certain pattern or design, for example a signature or coat of arms, we can also carve this for you too.
Currently we offer 3 different painted colours for our Accoya tree swings as standard. These colours are currently Pink, Blue and White, all part of the Farrow and Ball range. If you would prefer something slightly different, we can offer any of Farrow and Ball’s various colours. Please call/E-mail to discuss different colour options. Accoya tree swings can also be left bare sanded to weather naturally, eventually turning them a silvery grey colour.
