Frontier Swings™ is a home based LLC business in Georgia, owned and operated by Phill and Levenda Sommers. The idea to make the horse swings from old tires came soon after someone left some old tires on the Sommers' property. Phill is the kind of craftsman who could turn anything into a work of art. So he designed and created his own personal style of horse tire swing for their then one year old daughter. That was in February of 2005. Since then, he has perfected unique designs and added his own personal touch and flare to each individually made swing. What started as a swing for Marti has turned into a successful business providing fun and imaginative play for kids throughout the USA and all around the world.
The whole family is involved in some manner in the manufacturing process, even six year old Marti has a job as the quality control specialist. She makes sure each design is kid friendly, easy to use and fun to play on.
Frontier Swings™ introduces a whole new concept in having fun. These swings are made from recycled tires and are built with care as well as lots of imagination! The tires have been cleaned, sealed and the hardware used have rounded ends so kids don't get their clothes dirty or hung up. The ropes used on the horses hold up to 250-lbs. and can be adjusted to fit the height of the riders. All swings meet ATSM standards. (American Society for testing and Materials, Sec. F1148.)
Swings come completely assembled and ready to hang on a tree limb, deck, play set, or other structure.
