Nest Swing over a lake

A Nest Swing suspended and on a Zip Wire over a lake!

“…the team thought outside the box and delivered”

We were invited to think “adventurous” with a client who wished “wow-factor”, so between two large trees there was a perfect spot to firstly install a level Zip Wire high in the tree canopy between two trees using tree-friendly webbing slings and structural cable. We mounted a commercial grade stainless steel Zip Wire trolley onto the Zip Wire line and from this suspended a Nest Swing on a luxuriously long pendulum.

With a trailing rope line and attachment post on the bank, there was the opportunity to pull the Nest Swing to the rising lake bank, leap onto the Nest Swing and then take a big swing out across the lake both forwards and backwards, but also left and right along the Zip Wire. With spring brakes at either end of the Zip Wire we could set a stop butt to prevent swinging into the trees.

Key benefits for our client:

→ “wow-factor”.

→ Great lakeside adventure.

→ Beautifully conceived and built.
