Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Can My Ceiling Support A Swing?
Check the ceiling joists to determine whether your ceiling can support a swing. It is a supporting structure that holds the weight of any suspending object. Typically, any suspended object is hung from a joist.
On average, joists are placed in intervals of 16-24 inches. Overall, it can hold at least 50 lbs of weight per square foot. However, get the installers or carpenters involved if you are not sure how much weight the ceiling joists can support.
Q. How Much Space Do You Need for An Indoor Swing?
It totally depends upon the shape and size of the swing. However, while choosing a spot, make sure that there is at minimum, a space of three feet behind the swing. Furthermore, either side should have 14 inches of distance so that the swing does not hit and damage the wall while you are on it.
