Not only is the craftsmanship of our hammocks the highest level of quality, but we also choose the highest quality outdoor fabrics as well. We use our in-house brand DURACORD® Fabric. DURACORD® fabric is a leading fabric in the outdoor industry made from 100% solution-dyed acrylic. Solution-dyed acrylic, which means the fibers of the fabric are dyed in color before they are woven into the fabric. DURACORD® is not only fast-drying but is also resistant to rot, mold, mildew, and staining.
Oak Spreader Bar
A wood that is naturally resistant to both rot and insect infestation, and has oils that repel water, Oak blends both exceptional strength and a handsome appearance. Our Oak spreader bars are repeatedly hand-dipped in honey-gold marine-grade varnish allowing a longer outdoor life and exceptional good looks. Our Oak spreader bars are a full 1 inch thick, compared to most other competitor’s spreader bars that measure at ⅞ inch. A thicker spreader bar allows more holes for rope, allowing the hammock bed to sit firmly on the hammock. Our spreader bars also feature countersink drilled holes. Countersink drilling is a technique that uses a trumpet drill bit that produces a hole with no hard angles, allowing the rope to pass through without any sharp edges to wear the rope.
Rolled Rim Grommets with Spur Washers
We are very particular with every aspect of our hammocks even down to the grommets on all our fabric hammocks. Every grommet we use has tiny spurs on the back of the connecting washer forcing part of the fabric into the lip of the grommet itself, creating a more secure bond. The industry standard, however, is the telescoping grommet, which our testing has shown rips loose from the fabric before the rolled-rim grommet every time.
We plate all our hanging hardware with Zinc Plated Coating, including both tree hooks that come standard with our hammocks. The zinc-plated coating prevents the accumulation of rust and ensures a longer outdoor life. Our very own One-piece ring-knot and chain, a product of years of development, permanently attaches the chain to the O-ring. This produces a hammock that is more durable and most importantly makes it impossible to lose the chain.
Each of our Soft Weave Hammocks are filled with a non-absorbent polyester fiberfill batting that is sewn in between the two layers of fabric. The filling adds a pillow-like softness to the already comfortable fabric hammock. The fiberfill is a nonabsorbent material allowing water to drain through and provide quick drying.
