What Makes Cypress Moon Porch Swings Different From Other Wooden Swings?
Well, let's examine the pictures below which demonstrate the unique Support System of our swings...
First and foremost, our wooden porch swings have 2'' worth of support where the back and bottom connect! This is the area of the swing that critically needs the most support, especially for the "larger" crowd.
But that is not the only feature that makes the quality of Cypress Moon Porch Swings better than the competition. Let's look at this next picture...
If you'll notice in the picture above, our Standard porch swings have 4 supports across the back AND 4 across the bottom. Most other swings only have 3! Now, you may see some swings that have 4 on the top, but they will most likely only have 3 supports on the bottom. Few porch swings are built with this kind of quality support system!
But that still isn't all that seperates Cypress Moon from other porch swing manufactures...
Notice that the slats on our swings are over 1" thick. Most swing manufactures only use 3/4" slats! When you combine all of these features: 4 supports on the back of the swing; 4 supports on the bottom; extra-heavy bolts through the supports and 1" thick wooden slats, you can easily see why the Cypress Moon Standard Porch Swing is one of the best built wooden swings in the outdoor furniture business!
