Appearances can fool you. Looking for all the world like cotton rope and, even more importantly, feeling like cotton rope, our oatmeal-colored DuraCord
is nonetheless something altogether more — more durable, that is!
Exceeding even U.S. military specifications for strength, our DuraCord® rope is expressly made to withstand the rain, sleet, snow, sun and heat of changing seasons without the maintenance and care that constant weather exposure requires of classic cotton. DuraCord; is not only resistant to abrasion, rot, mold and mildew, but because the rope is solution-dyed, it's also resistant to staining and fading — in fact, there's no more colorfast rope available today.
So you might think of DuraCord; as cotton on steroids …
Hammock spreader bars are solid Southern white oak
that's been hand-dipped multiple times in marine-quality varnish
, to heighten the handsome hardwood's natural honey-gold hue. Hanging hardware, including chains, is galvanized steel
, for a further boost in strength, and for heightened rust protection.
As weather-tough as a Pawleys Island® Hammock is, we still strongly suggest storing it in an enclosed dry place away from harsh chemicals and foraging wildlife when the hammock is going unused, or during lengthy stretches of bad weather, to help prolong the product's useful life. Note:
Don't worry if your own Original Pawleys Island® Rope Hammock at first seems a little shorter than its advertised length; your hammock will soon reach its full length through natural stretching from initial use.
