Technical information

Made by our specialist rope maker from superior 20mm Hempex rope, with a diameter of 300mm, these Large Rope Ball swings are UV resistant, waterproof—they won’t swell or shrink when wet—and are far softer against your skin than normal ropes. The added thickness of our ropes makes them incredibly comfortable to grip.

The ball weighs 2.5 kgs and the rope will not absorb water—so the weight doesn't increase no matter how much rain is thrown at it! Made of devilishly stern stuff, the breaking strain of our rope is an impressive 3836 kgs.

We supply the rope in lengths of either 5m, 8m and 10m, and our no-knots fixing system ensures that these rope swings are exceptionally easy to position on any suitable branch or bough. Happy swinging!

Why our Rope Ball Swings are the best

Our rope swings have the credibility of our established brand, so much so that we are the only swing makers Licensed by The RHS. The National Trust have also bought our products for their gardens, and believe us, their testing & safety procedures are extremely vigorous, so what greater endorsement could you ask for?

Many Rope Ball Swings available use manilla rope which is rough to the touch and will rot over time.

The Sitting Spiritually Large Rope Ball Swing, measuring at a diameter of 3o0mm, is made by our Master Rope Maker using Hempex rope which is waterproof and UV resistant. Unlike other rope ball swings, our waterproof rope won't swell or shrink when wet. Perhaps most importantly Hempex is softer and kinder to your skin - so you can be assured that you'll be able to swing with maximum comfort. 

Our Rope Ball Swings are made with extra-thick 20mm rope; the additional thickness significantly improves the ability to grip onto the rope, making them far superior to the rope we've often seen on Rope Ball Swings.

If you would like us to build a rope swing to your own measurements? No problem, just give us a call.
