Picture yourself on a beach, listening to sound of ocean waves, seagulls chirping, and the feeling of a cool ocean breeze in your face, wasting the day away in pure relaxation bliss. The Deluxe Cushion Swing in Expand Calypso is the first step to creating this relaxation experience in the comfort of your own backyard!
The top fabric layer of our Expand Calypso Deluxe Cushion Double Swing is made from solution-dyed synthetic Sunbrella fabric and a neutral-colored bottom layer made from our quick-drying DURACORD® fabric. These two synthetics sandwich a lavish center of resilient, nonabsorbent polyester hollow-fill fiber manufactured from recycled plastic drink bottles.
For our Hatteras Hammock wood frame, we use a toasted almond-brown Brazilian Teak Cumaru that's been sanded to a soft finish. Cumaru is one of the strongest wooden materials around, and looks great as well! Our hardware is zinc plated steel, for quality rust protection.
Even though Hatteras Hammocks are extremely strong and weather-resistant, we do always recommend storing it in an enclosed dry place away from any overly-harsh weather, hungry wildlife and other lingering periods when it's going unused, to ensure its longest possible life.
Not only is the craftsmanship of our Deluxe Double Swings 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 deluxe double swings. 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 double swings because DURACORD® has better abrasion resistance than Sunbrella.
Cumaru Wood Frame
A Brazilian hardwood similar to teak, Cumaru, is 5 times harder and denser than pine, cedar, and redwood. 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. Exclusive to Hatteras Hammocks and is by far the best natural wood used in a porch swing on the market.
Made from recycled soda bottles, our polyester fiberfill is stuffed between two layers of durable fabric. The recycled fiberfill is non-absorbent, allowing water to drain easily and provide quick dying. Our goal is to repurpose recyclable materials as much as possible and leave a smaller carbon footprint.
We plate all our hanging hardware with Zinc Plated Coating, including both hanging hooks that come standard with our deluxe double swings. The zinc plated coating prevents the accumulation of rust and ensures a longer outdoor life
