The Difference Between A Glider And A Glider Swing
- Swing Bench

High quality, handcrafted wooden patio furniture is great to begin with. Match that with the ease and
elegance of a glider, and you've got the best of both worlds. Rocking chairs and porch swings are all
right, Swing bench but for the highest level of comfort, go with a glider or glider swing. They look
beautiful and will support you when you most need it.
What's a Glider?
If you haven't had a chance to own or even sit in a glider, then you've been missing out. That's because
sitting on a glider is like sitting on a cloud. Better yet, it's the most comfortable seat ever and it moves,
lulling you into levels of relaxation you never thought possible. Gliders are modified rockers in that
unlike a rocker which moves on a fulcrum arc via two base rockers, a glider has a fixed base unit, with a
seat that moves back and forth on a hardware track. Because of this, they are less dangerous because
no part of the chair's base ever leaves the ground, while the movement of the rockers from a rocking
chair can pinch toes and cat tails if you're not careful. That also differentiates them from a glider swing,
whose base is either fixed or never even touches the ground. Also, gliders operate with minimal
movement of the legs, so there's even less work for you.
But the advantages don't end there. Gliders are manufactured for both indoor and outdoor use. Indoor
gliders feature plush upholstery, often in ultra soft fabrics like micro-suede, and in a range of colors to
choose from. Outdoor gliders can be just as comfortable and attractive though, carved out of beautifully
finished woods like cedar and teak. You can also find reclining gliding chairs, and ones with matching
ottomans. These matching ottomans are often themselves gliders, meaning your legs can be elevated
and also glider in sync with the rest of your body, making for the smoothest ride possible.
Okay, but then what's a Glider Swing?
To clarify, the term glider swing can be a little vague, and depending on whom you ask, can mean a few
different things. First, there is the glider swing which basically resembles a cross between a regular
outdoor glider and a bench. These are freestanding models, much like the normal glider, and it operates
in exactly the same way. The only visible difference is that's wider like a bench so as to seat two or three
people at a time.
The following type of glider swing is a little more complex in design. This variation offers two separate
benches that face one another, but work on an attached track which connects the two at the base.
There's often a matching canopy, which not only shield riders from sun and rain, but also helps to
stabilize the unit as a whole. These swings are great for social use, as it allows for four people to
converse in a confined space and all contributing to the gliding motion.
