Four Oak Designs - Installation Notes
Your Four Oak Bed swing should be installed under a covered structure out of direct exposure to the elements. However, because we spray at least 3 to 4 coats of the highest grade exterior clear coating on all our swings, they can be installed under an uncovered structure such as a pergola.
It is ideal to allow a clearance of 1.5 feet or more in front and in back of bed swing and 1 foot on each side.
The standard size Manila rope that we use is 1" in diameter. Whereas most other manufacturers provide only 3/4" rope, we think that the 1" rope is much more attractive and proportional to the swing, not to mention a much higher load limit.
