HOW MUCH SPACE DO I NEED FOR MY PORCH SWING OR BED SWING?

While most swings fit and move in a space of 8 feet by 5 feet, the actual space needed will vary by product and style.  We suggest you refer to the manufacturer’s individual product specifications to determine the space needed to allow optimal product movement.

HOW MUCH WEIGHT WILL MY PORCH SWING OR BED SWING HOLD?

While most of our products have a weight rating of 1000 pounds, weight ratings vary by product and manufacturer.  We recommend you refer to the individual product specifications for weight limits.

HOW DO I INSTALL MY PORCH SWING OR BED SWING?

Once you have purchased a Nested product, we recommend that installation be completed by a Licensed Contractor. We provide product specific installation guides to share with your contractor, for best practices when installing your porch swing or bed swing.

HOW DO I KNOW IF MY CEILING WILL SUPPORT A PORCH SWING OR A BED SWING?

First and foremost, we always suggest having a Licensed Contractor look at your ceiling to evaluate where the joists are located and to guarantee structural support. Almost all ceilings are built with some kind of support beam and/or joist system in place. As long as you can locate those joists and determine if the dimensions of the swing or swing bed match up with where you'd like to place it, you shouldn't have any problems. We do recommend that a Licensed Contractor hang the product for you as well.

If your support beams do not coincide perfectly with where you'd like your swing or swing bed to hang, ceiling brackets can often be used as an alternative. The brackets will be attached to the outside of your ceiling and will connect to your support beams, wherever they are located. The bracket can then be used to secure the swing hooks. This allows you to place your swing wherever you'd like and ensures the ropes/chains will hang completely straight up and down.  Again, we recommend having a Licensed Contractor install ceiling brackets.

IS ALL HANGING HARDWARE INCLUDED WITH PURCHASE?

All hanging hardware is included with the purchase of one of our hanging options (rope, chain, and/or s-hooks).

If you purchase the swing only, without rope/chain/s-hooks, you will not receive ceiling hooks or hanging gear.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A PORCH SWING AND A BED SWING?

A porch swing has a hard bottom in it and is typically around 32 inches deep. A bed swing is designed to accommodate a standard twin bed mattress measuring 75 inches by 39 inches. 

WHAT KIND OF MATTRESS DO YOU RECOMMEND?

We suggest an inner spring or foam mattress 5 to 6 inches thick.
