Rising Sun Swing Seat – A contemporary, asymmetric design
Handcrafted from the finest English oak, the Rising Sun swing seat is truly beautiful. With the sun placed in the corner with its large rays spreading across the back and an ergonomically designed seat, the swing is extremely comfortable to relax on.
Rising Sun swing seats are all lovingly built to order in our Suffolk workshop. They are created using the finest English oak boards and highly durable stainless steel fixing. All of the swing seat components are individually shaped and put together to form the seat. The durability of the oak and stainless steel means that the swing will last many decades indeed.
The Rising Sun swing seat’s back is high and angled backward slightly from the seat, creating a very comfortable seated position. The seat is gently curved to follow the shape of the leg, and support behind the knee.
Sunrise is available in English oak, however there is now the added option of having your seat painted a colour of your choice, made from Accoya®. For more information on Accoya® swing seats see below.
Rising Sun can be supplied with or without an A-frame for the seat to hang from. If you have a suitable tree, or structure such as a pergola which you would like your swing hung from there is no need for an A-frame. A-frames are made from the same quality English oak as the seat and very sturdy. If you would like somewhere to place your favourite drink whilst relaxing in the garden, A-frames can be fitted with drink shelves too.
Rising Sun is available in 2 different sizes, 2 seater and 3 seater. Bespoke sizes are also available on request.
Hanging width (between the chains):
2 seater: 1300mm 3 seater: 1700mm
Swing seat A-frame foot print:
2 seater: 2500 x 1800mm 3 seater: 2950 x 1800mm
Rising Sun can be personalised with bespoke letter carving. A name, phrase or special date can be added to the swing to make it a truly unique product. Letter carving is available in 3 different locations on the swing, the top back rail, the front seat slat, or the top beam of the A-frame. Special messages can also be carved, making Sunrise a fantastic gift for a wedding, anniversary or birthday.
3 different finishes are available for Rising Sun, Bare sanded, Danish oil, or Satin varnish. Leaving the swing bare sanded means it will weather more quickly. English oak is extremely durable and therefore doesn’t need to be treated in anyway to have a long life. The weathering process will change the colour of the swing to a wonderful shade of silver/grey. If you would like your swing to keep its more golden appearance, it can be treated with exterior Danish oil. Danish oil will enhance the natural colour of the timber as well as help protect it from the weather, it is relatively easy to apply and maintain. Finally sunrise can be finished in satin varnish, this is similar to the Danish oil but provides slightly enhanced durability.
Delivery and installation
To make our service truly personal, we deliver and install all Rising Sun swing seats ourselves, ensuring everything is perfectly set up and assembled for you. When your swing is nearing completion we will be in touch to discuss and decide upon the most suitable date to deliver the swing. The seat is usually delivered and erected within the space of one hour. We set the height of the swing so it is in the optimal position for the customer. Delivery cost is dependant on county and how far that is from our workshop.
Newly available in stunningly hand painted Accoya® is the Rising Sun swing seat. Accoya is an extremely durable timber which is also eco friendly due to its fast growth. Initially Accoya is a soft wood, it goes through a non toxic process called acetylation which changes the structure of the timber effectively turning it into a hard wood. It is fantastic for painting meaning your swing seat can fit in with the colour them of your garden! To enquire about an Accoya swing seat E-mail us or call 01449 741744.
