Sunlight nurtures our lives and marks the days. It sets the tempo for our very lives, but it also makes us...well, sweat! Some of the best summer days are long and hot, and where shade comes in short supply, the Suncast Poolside Hammock promises to keep you cool and dry. Whether you're sandy or soaked (be it from the pool, beach, or your pores), this state of the art, ultra-breathable hammock will effortlessly wick away moisture. The breathability goes beyond simple waterproofing: Poolside hammocks are uncommonly cool, by virtue of the ample ventilation of its specially engineered bed.
The bed portion of our Poolside Hammocks is a single layer of Textilene open-weave polyester fabric, its individual threads coated in PVC before they're woven into a sheet that is then heat-set for added strength and integrity.
Uncommonly durable, Textilene is not only quick-drying, but also resistant to rot, mold, mildew, staining, fading, abrasion and stretching, all the while feeling smooth - and because it's so breathable, cool - against the skin.
As is befitting a fabric designed for poolside use, bleach won't harm it, either!
Hammock spreader bars are solid Southern white oak that's been hand-dipped multiple times in marine-quality spar varnish, to heighten the handsome hardwood's natural honey-gold hue.
The ropes attaching the hanging hardware to the hammock bed are made from weather-tough soft-spun polyester; we precision-wind all of our own rope ourselves, to exceed even the U.S. military's exacting specifications for strength. Hanging hardware, including chains, is zinc-plated steel, for a further boost in strength, and for heightened rust protection, while the grommets used for attaching the ropes to the hammock bed are brass-plated rolled-rim steel.
As weather-hardy as Textilene, is, this hammock does contain organic wood parts, so we do still strongly advise storing it in an enclosed dry place away from harsh chemicals and foraging wildlife when it is going unused, or during lengthy stretches of bad weather, to help prolong the product's useful life.
