With its rich blue fabric so sheer that you can see straight through it like water, to the hammock stand
holding it up in the picture above, just be careful not to confuse this pretty Poolside Hammock with an actual pool! Dive into a pool, after all, and you'll splash, but dive instead into this hammock, and as strong as the synthetic mesh fabric is, you might just bounce … right on out!
To be fair, the floating atop a raft you might do in a pool might feel an awful lot like the floating on air you'll essentially be doing when reclining in this quality relaxation construction!
The bed portion of our Poolside Hammocks is a single layer of Textilene®
open-weave polyester fabric, its individual threads coated in synthetic 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.*Stand Sold Separately.
