Why Are Free Standing Hammocks So Good?
Free standing hammocks provide a simple, movable hammock that can travel with you from room to room, or state to state. Unlike traditional hammocks which require multiple anchor points, free standing hammocks incorporate a stand which means that you won’t need to find a new anchorage each time you move. That means that as the sun moves throughout the day, you can simply pick up your hammock and stand and move yourself into (or out of) the sun as you wish.
Hammocks with stands feature two parts – the hammock and the stand. When you buy a free-standing hammock online in Australia, you rarely receive a high-quality stand and hammock. At My Hammocks, we are different – we only import and sell premium quality products that are designed to last you for years, not months.
We want your hammock to become part of the family and part of the furniture, which is why we back all of our products with a warranty and ensure that they are safe and practical for the whole family.
Frequently Asked Questions
How many people can a hammock and stand hold?
Each hammock that we sell includes a weight rating which is listed on the individual product page. We recommend checking the weight rating to see whether the hammock is the right fit for your needs. If you’re looking for something a little larger or want to accommodate multiple adults, we recommend you check out our range of double hammocks.
How long do free standing hammocks last?
The lifespan of your free-standing hammock will depend entirely on how you store, treat, and care for it. Like anything, a hammock that is left outside or exposed to harsh elements will invariably deteriorate at a faster rate than a hammock that is stored indoors or packed away and cleaned after use.
Some of the most important factors that will influence the life of your hammock include:
- Where you store your hammock – products which are stored inside and away from the elements will last longer than those that are left outside during harsh weather conditions.
- Your climate – generally speaking, hammocks that are used in tropical or salty regions will be subject to faster wear than those that are in stable or less harsh environments.
- How you use it – Jumping in and out of your hammock or routinely exceeding the recommended weight capacity is a sure-fire way to cause premature wear and tear. Each product that we sell comes with individual care instructions that will help you to get the most out of it.
The products that we sell are designed to last for years – not for months. We don’t sell seasonal or cheap free-standing hammocks that will deteriorate after a few months of use.
