Rattan Hanging Egg Swing Chair w/ Stand

Please share the sitting weight limit thx

I found this in the Q&A section on the Amazon listing:

Discovering the actual load limit can be exciting.

If the swing is swung vigorously then the load stress may exceed static (still) load bearing.

Swings experience a gravitational force mass times gravitational acceleration

– where m is the mass of the swings and g≈9.81ms^(−2) is the gravitational acceleration

They pass this on to the beam.

The beam also exerts a centripetal force on the swings, which is
mω2r=mv2/r

– where ω is the swings’ angular frequency and v is their velocity.

The two forces are additive so the total force exerted by the swings and the beam on each other is their sum.

Bottom line: it is best to have a significant margin of safety if the item is going to be really a “swing” and not simply a seat.

Yeah, but generally these types of seats are used to just sit and swivel in. At least for adults…

I do not want the gravity of the situation to befall you.

I was asking for a friend who never sits alone.

This design seems safer for two Pretty too.

Two using one built for single occupancy may exceed physics laws.
May mean their friendship reaches a new low (well grounded).
