Q: We’re considering installing a swing chair in our son’s room to help with his sensory issues. What steps should we take to ensure the swing is safe?
A: If the swing chair is to be attached to the ceiling, make sure that the structure of the ceiling is capable of the load it will be subjected to when the swing is in use. Make sure that the suspension attachment between chair and the ceiling is designed for the imposed load. Lastly, make sure that the floor is capable of the impact load should there be a mishap.
