This is one of the heaviest duty residential swings seats on the market. The dimensions of the seat are 26.25" x 5.25" x ¼”. You need to use our large end H140 S-hook or H172 H-Shackle to connect the seat to chain. There are two stainless steel inserts with a stainless strip welded to connect the inserts. These inserts have four stainless steel washers welded to them. This is then enclosed in EPDM rubber. Therefore, washers are not visible from the outside of the swing seat. EPDM: Ethylene-propylene-diene-monomer is a synthetic rubber material which helps prevent crazing, cracking and oxidizing. Natural rubber is often made from recycled tires etc., and you are never sure what the actual rubber mixture is. It often wears off on children’s clothes. It cracks and crazes, making the seat unsightly and allowing moisture to get into the seat. This makes the seat deteriorate at a much quicker rate. Our seats are made of EPDM rubber that is made especially for our swing seats. The rubber does not rub off on children’s clothes and the seats last much longer than natural rubber swings. Unlike seats made of polymer, seats made of EPDM rubber hold up well in extreme temperatures, both very hot and very cold.
We believe our swing seats are made to the highest standards available. Customers cannot see many of the extra hidden safety features. Uninformed users may think our swing seats and another suppliers are the same. However, they may not have added the hidden safety features that we have because of the added costs. We feel these safety features benefit the strength of our swings and the well-being of the children that use our equipment. Swing Seat is Made in the USA. The seat should last 2 years in harsh conditions and up to 5 years in optimal conditions. Some conditions may require replacement sooner. Tensile strength is 3400 lbs.
