With soft contours reflecting contemporary influence, this gently arching stand adds class to relaxation. The Textured Steel Arc Hammock Stand in Black from Hatteras Hammocks is a very strong and safe option. It is constructed from 1.9 in. diameter 13 gauge heavy duty steel and has a 450 pound weight limit. The critical elbow joint is made using a newly developed steel plate system. This welded plate has been rigorously tested and has been found to be the strongest available. The stand is coated with a Cape Shield finishing process, which is a special process of cleaning, preparing, and powder coating the stand to make it weather resistant and give you many years of enjoyment. The Arc Stand is finished with durable vinyl caps to protect the pole ends and rust resistant hanging Z-hooks designed to pull hammock at an angle for secure connection to stand. Supports large or deluxe hammocks.
