The bright white color of our polyester rope is startlingly attractive against nature's lively hues and the muted earth tones common to any outside living space. Yet pretty hammock rope is actually pretty worthless in the great outdoors if it isn't also pretty darn tough, too. That's why we precision-wind all of our 3-ply synthetic rope ourselves, to a strength exceeding even the U.S. military's exacting specifications and a durability unmatched by any other hammock manufacturer — so you can count on our rope not only to be sturdy enough to hold up you and your family but also to hold up against the elements as well.
After years of evolution and experimentation, our Polyester rope has developed into a material that is not only soft to the touch but durable for any outdoor setting. It takes our weavers an hour, along with 1,200 feet of polyester rope, to weave a single hammock.
Cumaru Spreader Bar
A Brazilian hardwood similar to teak, Cumaru, is 5 times harder and denser than pine, cedar, and redwood. Exclusive to Hatteras Hammocks, our Cumaru hardwood has a history of outstanding outdoor performance. Even after years of use, our Cumaru hardwood ages naturally to a beautiful silver grey without losing any of its durability. Our Cumaru 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.
All our Rope Hammocks are Handwoven by highly trained weavers that have mastered the technique of the Double-Latch Weave. This technique is best described when individual ropes pull against each other to produce a lattice-like design, thus eliminating the need for knots within the rope bed itself. We use 15% more rope than our competitors, which provides a sturdier hammock bed for complete relaxation.
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.
Note: Don't worry if your own Hatteras 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.
