Innovation in pursuit of supreme relaxation – that’s the Hatteras Difference!
Through the years, Hatteras Hammcoks' ceaseless commitment to making a better hammock has led them to both new and better materials for construction, and advanced methods of manufacture. Their goal is to offer the highest quality in every facet of design and construction, to always better themselves and their products. This perpetual pursuit has led them to a truly uncommon approach to hammock-making, blending handcrafting and hand-weaving with state-of-the-art manufacturing processes that allow them to bring advanced durability and streamlined beauty to you and your family’s own quest for heightened relaxation.
For their line of highly designed quilted and quick-dry fabric hammocks, they use only exceptional all-weather fabrics, guaranteed both durable and soft. Hatteras Hammocks' own top-of-the-line is DuraCord®, a solution-dyed synthetic they helped design to be resistant to staining, rot, mold and mildew. To be so tough against the elements, DuraCord is also surprisingly soft – its softness, in fact, rivals that of cotton.
Hatteras Hammocks offer two varieties of rope, both of them synthetic: bright-white soft-spun polyester and again the top-of-the-line DuraCord®, available in several colors. But you’ll find no cotton here for good reason. Now that cotton is no longer the only game in town for exceptional rope-hammock comfort, but Hatteras Hammocks offer alternatives that deliver unsurpassed durability without the rigorous upkeep demands, all the while sacrificing nothing in comfort.
Simply put, theirs is the largest and heaviest in the industry. And for very good reason! On a hammock or swing, it’s the hanging chains and rings that bear the brunt of the stress. They plate all of it with zinc to protect against rust and ensure an overall longer outdoor life. Their signature one-piece ring-and-chain and adjustable hook means less aggravation, since your chain assembly won't fall apart on you during hammock storage.
Chosen not just for how good it looks, but also for how well it holds up. Cumaru, also known as Brazilian teak, is incredibly dense, nonabsorbent South American hardwood used for nearly all of their hammocks because it resists rotting, doesn't split after being out in the sun a long time, is unattractive to boring insects, and naturally weathers to a beautiful silver-gray.Oak. For their swing arms and supports, they use a light-grained American-furniture classic. They seal the wood with multiple hand-dipped coats of marine-grade varnish.Southern cypress. Their award-winning Roman Arc® hammock stands and swing stands are crafted from slats of this distinctive watertight softwood. They employ a radio-frequency gluing system for precision-binding the cypress slats, finally applying a coat of boiled linseed oil to protect and nourish the wood.
The Tri-Beam® Steel Hammock Stand, an original design, couldn’t be any simpler to assemble – no tools needed! The steel-core spring pins pop easily into place, holding the heavy poles safe and secure. They use a signature Right Connection® 360-degree welding process to secure the foot and base poles of the Tri-Beam Steel Hammock Stands. The weld is applied where one pole sits inside a half-moon groove punched in the other; unlike with traditional metal-atop-metal welds, they've never once seen a Right Connection fail. They finish all of their steel products with handsome, lightly-textured Cape Shield® Powder Coat. Cape Shield, applied through an electrostatic high-pressure-spraying system, goes on thicker and more uniformly, and with a tighter bond between metal and coating, than is possible through the industry's more common dipping-application method.
