We understand that for traditionalists, the only acceptable rope hammock may be a cotton one. But cotton, as a natural fiber, has inherent limitations. Cotton rope requires diligent upkeep; the rope must routinely be brought in out of bad weather and great pains need to be taken to keep it clean and well-maintained.
And here you thought all that was required of you from your hammock was just to relax in it!
But with oatmeal-colored DURACORD® rope, which looks and feels amazingly like cotton, you can still have all that happy sense of tradition, just without the constant attention to protecting your favorite outdoor-leisure perch from the perils of extended outdoor exposure.
Oatmeal DURACORD®: The look and feel of cotton, but without the cotton-upkeep frustration!
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.
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.
