Birds Nest Swing Seat

Our commercial Birds Nest Swing Seat has been tested and certified for commercial use.  Made from a steel ring (with four hanging points) which has been wrapped with shock absorbing rope, our Bird’s Nest Seat comes with stainless steel shackles and chain.  It also features armed rope webbing and suspension ropes for increased durability.

Designed for a maximum swing beam height of 2.5m. Please note that as our commercial Nest Swing Seats are often sold as replacements, our price does not include the swing frame or swing hooks.

For commercial installations you need to use 2 x Nest Swing Hooks (see below).  A swing frame built to commercial guidelines is essential due to the potential forces involved.

For domestic (private residential) installations, you can use our Nest Swing Hooks with either 2 of our Swing Bow Shackles or 2 of our Swing Clips (Carabiners).  For the cheapest & strongest domestic swing frame, we recommend building your own using 2 of our Square Swing Frame Corners.  If you dig all 4 legs deep into the ground, the frame should also be very stable.

All Nest Seats must be hung from a dedicated and substantial swing frame – they should not be attached to weaker structures such as branches, pergolas and junior swing frames.

We usually stock the most popular colour combination which is green centre with a black ring, however, other colour combinations can be ordered in for you.

Instructions: Commercial Installation – the hole for the Safety Pin should be drilled 16cms inside the main Swing Hook Bolts and no part of the Nest Swing Seat should be lower than 40cms from the ground.  The two main Swing Hook Bolts should be 190cms apart.

To calculate your Critical fall Height, divide the chain length by two and then add the height of the swing seat at rest.

To calculate the length of your Safety Extent, multiply the chain length by 0.867, then add 2.25m.  This is calculated from the centre of a seat while at rest.  The width of your Safety Extent should be 125cms wider than the swing seat, or 1.75m minimum.
