Safety
This child swing's construction increases the safety for children playing in the vicinity of the swing in use. The soft canvas seat hugs the shape of the body when swinging, sitting or lying on the tummy, making it a safer swing (no extruding hard parts that have no give). The ropes are made from an extremely strong 10 mm high performance yachting braid.
Indoor-Outdoor
This Solvej swing is made from weather proof materials, natural durable timber, rot proof canvas and yachting braid so you can use it indoors and outdoors. This swing can be hung up to a height of 3.3 metres, without adding extension ropes.

 Guarantee 

This swing has our standard 9 year guarantee.
Packing and Convenience
Coveniently designed the swing rolls up  compactly for storage or transport. Stainless steel carbine hooks (eye-bolts not provided) make it very easy for you to move the swing.

Safety

The Solvej Baby toddler swing must be kept in the baby mode, with the leg divider on, and at a height where the bottom of the swing is minimum 600mm above ground level, until the child reaches 3 years old.

Check the ropes, hooks and eyes regularly for wear and tear.

The sun gradually breaks down the fiber in all ropes.

A safety surface under the swing is recommended.

Don't start to swing your baby until her/his neck is strong enough, approximately 6 months. Always support your baby well with cushions etc. until your baby grows into the swing.
Please remember a young baby should always be swung gently. Always use the safety belt.

Swing rule No 1

Keep a safe distance from someone swinging so they can't hit you.

Make sure every child that is in your home knows this rule. As you know how it is with children, you have to remind the children of the rule over and over again.

Young children generally don't have a conception of measurement in metres so it is best to show them the distances or better still mark it.

The Rope

We use a soft high performance polyester  yachting braid because it is strong, will not rot, has excellent UV resistance and looks good.

Canvas

For our standard Solvej swings we use a 100% acrylic canvas because it is rot proof and is the best outdoor furniture canvas on the market. It has a 5-year manufacturers warantee from fading. The Solvej Organic swing is made from 100% organic hemp canvas. We do not recommend leaving the organic swing outside.

Timber

The choice of timber has to fulfil the criteria of being naturally weather durable to avoid chemical treatment with the pollution that can come with that. It also has to come from a planted or sustainable source. 

We are currently using Garapa which carries either independent FSC100% certification it is sourced from legal and wellmanaged resources; or independent VLO (Verified Legal Origin) certification. 

Fittings

Carabines and screw eyes(eye lags) are stainless steel.

Paint 

The non-toxic acrylic water bound paint and the lacquer we use comply with DIN EN 71 part 3 standard for toxicity and DIN 53160 for sweat and saliva resistance. The oil we use is naturalnon toxic tung oil.

Caring For Your Swing

Fabric:The fabric does not promote mildew growth, however, mildew may grow on dirt and other foreign substances that are not removed from the fabric. Therefore regular cleaning is important to keep your fabric looking good. This is more likely to occur in humid climates and/or when the swing is hung outside under cover and is not naturally cleaned by the rain and sun.

When used in permanent outdoor situations the canvas should be brushed and hosed regularly to remove dust, bird droppings, etc. and other solid particles.

Water borne stains such as coffee, tea, red wines, etc. should be treated first by rinsing in cold water. If this is not sufficient, the canvas may be washed with  a mild solution of soap (not detergent) in lukewarm water (max 38C, 100F) and rinsed thoroughly.

Stubborn soiling may require treatment with a non-chlorine bleach.

Wood: All timber goes naturally grey when exposed to the weather. If you wish to slow down the process of the timber going grey, oil often with any non toxic outdoor oil. Oil and wood are both organic matter. If dirt or other organic substances such as food, pollen or saliva are left on the wood it may go mouldy and the mould could enter the wood. This is more likely to occur in humid climates and/or when the swing is hung outside under cover and is not naturally cleaned by the rain and sun. Wipe down the bars regularly and especially when it has had dirty or sticky hands on it or been sucked on.

There are products on the market that will restore wood that has gone grey to its original colour if you want to.

The carbine clips make it very easy to move your swing so if you want to keep it looking it's best, simply store inside after each use.

Instructions for baby and toddler canvas swing

Hanging instructions

Baby and toddler swing can be mounted in doorways or/and on beams, ceiling joists, verandas, pergolas and swing stands or the like. Screw 2 screw-eyes approx. 500mm apart. To have the screw-eyes wider apart than the swing itself makes it swing straight. Make sure the holes in the eyes are facing forward so the carbine hook rolls in the eye instead of grinding. Adjust the height with the sliding ropelocks. The baby and toddler swing can be hung, with the rope provided, (with the swing down at the lowest for a toddler) at a height of up to 2.3 meters. For any higher extension ropes will be needed.

Check the ropes, knots and attachments regularly for evidence of deterioration and replace if weakened. The sun breaks down all rope fibres over time. A safety surface under the swing is recommended. Do not hang over concrete, asphalt or any other hard surface

6 months to 6 years

baby and toddler swing is suitable for a baby from when it can sit upright unaided (approximately 6 months) to 6 years old or 40 kg/88 lbs. Always support your baby well with cushions etc. until your baby grows into the swing. Please remember a young baby should always be swung gently. Always use the safety belt. Only use under adult supervision.

Converting instruction

When your child is over the age of 3 the  baby and toddler swing can be converted to a toddler version by undoing the leg divider and doming it around the strap under the swing (see picture). adjust the hight with the sliding rope-locks so the swing will hang 350-450 mm/14"-18" above the floor or ground. This enables your child to get in unaided by sliding the front bar up, sitting in and sliding the bar down again.

baby and toddler swing can now be used as long as your child fits in, approximately 6 years depending on the size of the child (inside measurement 260x260x260).

Hanging instructions for child swing and board swing

swings can be mounted in doorways or/and on beams, ceiling joists, verandas, pergolas and swing stands or the like. Screw 2 screw eyes or eyebolts approx. 500mm apart with the holes in the eyes facing forward. It is important to have the eyes facing forward because then the carbine hook will roll and not grind in the eye. Having the ropes going wider apart as they go up helps the swing to swing strait. Adjust the height with the sliding ropelocks. The swings can be hung from a height of 3 meters without extension ropes

Check the ropes, hooks and eyes regularly for wear and tear. The sun gradually breaks down the fiber in all rope. A safety surface under the swing is recommended.

Extension ropes

The ropes provided for  baby and toddler swing can reach 2.3m and child swings 3m. If you want to hang them higher you will need extension ropes.
