First Impressions of the Sundale Deluxe Swing
This outdoor swing has so many great things to discuss. First, it has a beautiful canopy that will shield the user from the harsh rays of the sun. You don’t have to worry about putting this swing under the shade of a tree. It comes with it’s own shade. Second, it also comes with cushions, throw pillows, and trays for drinks and food. Lastly, it’s able to hold the weight of 3 people, so that you can enjoy this swing with friends.
While we listed the lightweight frame as a disadvantage to this porch swing, we believe that’s easily fixable. This is why we still wholeheartedly recommend the Sundale Outdoor Deluxe Wicker Porch Swing. All you have to do is weigh down the legs by staking them into the ground. This shouldn’t be used by children to swing aggressively, so it won’t be a problem for adults, anyway, but you’ll want it secured for outdoor use.
Construction of the Outdoor Swing
The patio swing has a curved frame made of steel. Once it’s staked securely into the ground, you can swing freely in this swing with two of your friends. It won’t bend or warp. The steel is covered with a powder-coated finish to keep it from rusting.
The canopy fabric is made of durable polyester. When you have an outdoor swing, it’ll be exposed to the elements throughout the spring, summer, and fall. From harsh winds, punishing rays of the sun, and pelting rain, you’ll have all of that weather attacking the material of the swing. Unless you plan on storing it after each use, the durability of the materials matter. The durable polyester is water resistant as well as being fade resistant.
The seat is breathable and cool, which means that sitting under the canopy on a hot, summer day will be comfortable and relaxing.
Specifications & Details
The overall dimensions of the swing are 73” in length by 47 inches in width by 72 inches in height. If you want to place this on your porch, you’ll need to measure the space to ensure it’ll fit. The seat is 19 inches off the ground and can support 550 pounds.
Inside the package is a patio swing chair, a canopy, 2 trays, a 3-seat cushion, and 3 throw pillows specifically used outdoors. The swing comes with all the hardware and tools you’ll need for assembly. It also comes with an instruction book. Some customers had a hard time with assembly, but if you gather all the materials and tools beforehand and follow the detailed instructions, you should be able to put this together quite easily.
The shipping package will weigh 133 pounds. Take this into consideration when you’re thinking about whether you’ll need some help with assembly.
Suggestions for Use
While you could use this swing with or without canopy on your porch, you’re not really making full use of the swing. It’ll provide an extra place for seating during parties if you use it out in the yard. It’s a great place to sit and relax while enjoying a cool, summer breeze. The swing will be terrific in many situations whether you’re swinging on it with family, friends, or a significant other.
We love the idea of this swing deep within a garden where it’s just you surrounded by nature with all the sights and the sounds of others hidden. It’s lightweight enough that you could move this swing wherever it’s needed based on the event you’re having at your home. For barbecues, you can pull it out of the garden and place it near the patio furniture to create another space for conversation and the enjoyment of food.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is the swing’s canopy adjustable?
It’s a simple matter of moving the canopy to get better coverage from the sun. You might want to remove it if you are using it on the porch, too. It’s a versatile swing.
How much clearance does the swing need?
This will depend on who is using the swing. While it’s not made for children, they’ll want to sit and swing, so make allowances for the arc of the swing itself. If you keep it on the porch, it could bang into the home.
This canopy swing is a fantastic addition to your backyard and will fit in with much of your patio décor. It’s resistant to the elements, and it can hold up to 3 adults. This versatile swing can be used for so many events, you’ll wonder how you lived without it all these years.
