Outdoor bed with metal frame, adjustable mattress & textile roof
Swing bed Trainspotter is an outdoor bed that got its name for a reason. With this swing bed / dream hammock, we offer you the opportunity to be part of the creative process. In this way you contribute to:
- to support your local suppliers and thus reduce your climate footprint
- affect the total cost by making parts yourself
- create your own unique design
What is needed for this swing bed to be complete?
All links in this text are there to guide you in where to find all the parts. The base of this swing bed is its metal frame. It is made of 2 mm thick steel. When buying only a frame, a sketch is included that shows all parts such as the roof and size of the slatted base. We can deliver this frame unpainted to you. By hand-painting it with metal paint, you not only get a durable alternative. You also have the opportunity to choose the color and improve if someone should bump into or scrape away some paint from your outdoor bed. If you paint it with good color, this swingbed / dream hammock can remain outdoors all year round!
To this swing bed, you also need a slatted base for a single bed. Here you can choose whether you want a height-adjustable slatted base or alternatively build your own variant. Feel free to choose one in wood so you can paint it with outdoor paint to make it last longer.
To hang the swing bed in a tree or scaffold, you need some form of wire or rope. We have chosen jute rope with the dimension 16 mm and have created a loop to hang the outdoor bed. To prevent the wire from hanging loose against the bar, we have chosen a wire lock for a 16 mm thick rope.
You then need a mattress for your outdoor bed. We sell mattress covers for you that are 100% waterproof so you can use any mattress for your bed. Lying in a real mattress outdoors is wonderful. We promise!
Regarding the roof, you can either sew one yourself or we can contribute with it.
