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 a combination of Sunbrella® Fabric and our in-house brand DuraCord® Fabric. Sunbrella branded fabric is the foremost 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. Sunbrella is not printed or dyed after the fabric is made. Sunbrella® is water resistant and will not fade. You can even soak it in bleach and the color will remain the same. Which is why to use Sunbrella® fabric on the tops of our hammocks. DuraCord® is not only fast-drying but is also resistant to rot, mold, mildew, and staining, as well as Sunbrella. We use the DuraCord Fabric on the bottom of our Fabric Hammocks because has better abrasion resistance than Sunbrella.
Our own proprietary solution-dyed synthetic blend of rope, DuraCord, blends the softness of cotton with the durability of polyester. Made in the Carolinas, this combination yields a rope that has excellent color steadfastness and superior feel. DuraCord is dyed when spun, producing a rope that is colored all the way through. Like a carrot when sliced open, DuraCord has the same color on both the inside and the outside. Our DuraCord rope is the densest rope on the hammock market at 85 ft./lb., this results in less stretching and increased support when relaxing in your 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.
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. We have also experimented with making the fabric around the grommet stronger by sewing an “X” on the fabric before placing the grommet, by adding that extra stitching it gives those tiny spurs more fabric to grip onto. The industry standard, however, is the telescoping grommet, which our testing has shown rips lose from 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 Quilted Hammocks is 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.
