FAQ About Swing Frames

How do I build a swing frame?

There are numerous instructions on the Internet on how to build a swing frame yourself.

When can children start swinging on their own?

The age at which a child can swing independently depends on individual development. In order to get onto a swing on his own, he must be able to stand and walk safely. The swinging motion also requires a certain amount of strength and a sense of balance. Being pushed lightly (on a normal swing, the child just holds on) sometimes works at the age of 1.5 years. It is important to pay attention to the child, not to overtax him and not to give too much momentum. For very small children or children who are not yet secure enough, there are special swings with fall protection.

What does swinging promote?

Swinging promotes motor skills and sense of balance with a lot of fun and joy.

Which wood for swing frame?

Larch is a particularly suitable wood. It is not so susceptible to pests and the weather.
