The strong rocker is made to accommodate people that have needs a bit different than the general population.
People who might have trouble getting into and out of regular height chairs or ex-football players who weigh over 250 pounds.
The legs are made of two pieces of cedar glued together with water proof glue in addition be being bolted together. The seat is reinforced and the rockers have an adaption which tells the user that it is maximum foreword tilt. The arm rests are wider for more bracing underneath. If requested, the foot rest can be made to fold up for more ease in getting in and out of the rocker. Four rockers instead of two means there is less weight per rocker on the floor than with the regular rocker.
We could have saved significant dollars by outsourcing manufacturing to a foreign country, but we believe it is important to ensure both the quality of our raw materials as well as the final product by keeping production local.
Also, by keeping production local, we help support American jobs and American families.
Cypress offers distinct advantages over other outdoor furniture materials. It is insect and rot resistant, it can be stained or painted easily, and it's milled from a renewable resource.
Cypress wood has a natural durability which makes it a perfect choice for the Tall Rocker. Because cypress generates cypressene, its own preservative oil, it is naturally resistant to insects, decay, and other damaging elements. Cypress has long been a favorite choice for long-wearing outdoor applications such as fence posts, telephone poles, pilings, docks and railroad ties.
Cypress also is a very stable wood, which makes it highly resistant to splitting and warping. Cypress easily accepts paints and stains, though many people use a clear sealer to bring out its honey-like hues.
The wood used to make the Tall Rocker is warranted for a lifetime against termites and decay, when used in normal environmental conditions. The hardware is also warranted against corrosion due to exposure to normal environmental conditions.
You are entitled to receive new wood replacement parts for damage, rot or termites, and you are also entitled to replacement hardware if any screws or bolts experience corrosion under normal environmental conditions.
