A comfortable place to sit, the sun setting as you sip on a cold drink, rocking gently on the patio in your new favorite chair. Open your eyes and realize that you can have just that with the Cast Slate Tufted Single Swing. Calming earth tones and a unique pattern are handmade in the USA from two layers of Sunbrella fabric, known for it's cotton-like softness and unmatched durability, being resistant to fading, staining, mold, and mildew, providing you with a worry-free place to relax.
DURACORD® rope leads to a Cumaru spreader bar to create a seat that's comfortable, maintains its shape, and is easy to get in and out of. The DURACORD® rope is designed for outdoor use, blending strength and style into a rope that won't degrade from exposure to the elements. Cumaru is amongst the hardest woods on the planet and slowly ages from a warm brown to a cool, coastal silvery-grey, giving your swing a unique look that can't be matched.
Transform your patio space with the Cast Slate tufted single swing; it provides hours of relaxation and is the perfect way to take your personal enjoyment of your outdoor space to the next level. So what are you waiting for?
Not only is the craftsmanship of our 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 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 Fabric Swings because DURACORD® 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 swing market at 85 ft./lb., this results in less stretching and increased support when relaxing in your swing.
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. 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 swings even down to the grommets on all our tufted swings. 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.
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 tree hooks that come standard with our swings. 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 swing that is more durable and most importantly makes it impossible to lose the chain.
