Should I Choose a Wooden or Metal Swingseat?
Although you may think that metal swing seats generally require less maintenance than wooden swing seats, at Garden Street most of our range of Swing Seats are pressure treated, such as the Rowlinson Dartmouth Swing Seat.
This means that the wood will never rot, and although wood may eventually look tired after it weathers, not treating it again would not affect the structural integrity. Metal Swing seats may eventually rust, so care would need to be taken if constantly leaving a metal swing seat outside.
Preference does mostly go down to personal choice though, as a wooden swing seat has a more traditional design and can complement existing wooden fences, sheds, and garden furniture.
Metal is typically more modern, although most of the metal framing is covered with cushions and a canopy to really notice the metal framework. Best sellers include the Glendale Nancy Deluxe Bed Hammock.
