So you have the perfect spot in mind and just need some help finding the right hammock for that space.
Most people hang their hammocks from trees in the garden, on ceilings and walls at home and on purpose built hammock stands.
If you are looking to hang you hammock on a stand then check out our hammock sets or you can configure your own stand and hammock combination by using our Compatibility Guide. Our stands are all weather proof and whether you go for a wooden or metal stand will come down to your budget.
If you are hanging the hammock between trees or walls then you will need to measure the space and ensure it is at least 2.5 - 6 meters wide. If you only have one tree or wall then you can use a Madera Post. You will also need fixings depending on how you are going to hang your hammock:

2. How big do you want the hammock to be?
Single Hammocksare very generous and are what most of our competitors call doubles. Our Double Hammocks will comfortably accommodate 2 adults whilst our Family/XL Hammocks will take three or more adults easily.
On each of our product pages we have specifications that shows the lying surface. This is the total space available for occupants to lie on. We also have load capacity which details the maximum weight the hammock can take. All worth keeping in mind when choosing the right size hammock.
3. Will it be left outside much?
To learn more about leaving hammocks and stands outside read our quick guide here.
4. What style and colour do you want?
Spreader Bar Hammock has a wooden pole which spreads out the bars at each end and gives the hammock a flatter profile. Some people prefer the look of these but they can be trickier to get in and out of because the material is so taut.
None Spreader Bar Hammocks or Classic Hammocks do not have a wooden pole which means there is more fabric so you can move around easier. On a windy day you can even use the fabric as a blanket, or turn you hammock into a make shift chair to sit upright in and they are usually a lot easier to get in and out of. If you are planning on sleeping in your hammock then a None Spreader Bar Hammock is more comfortable as you can sleep in a traditional diagonal position.
(ii) Cotton vs Nylon vs Weather Proof
Cotton hammocks are extremely comfortable, fast drying if you do get caught out in the rain and very breathable. They are definitely the most comfortable type of hammock and come in a vibrant array of colours and patterns.
Our Weather Proof Hammocks are made using EllTex fabric which is a cotton and polyester mix. They are resistant to UV rays and rain, so can be left out all year round. Despite them being a lot stronger than cotton, they still are very soft and comfortable.
Lastly there are Nylon Hammocks, ours are made using parachute silk. It is extrememly tear proof, breathable and super lightweight so perfect for anyone travelling around with a hammock.
(iii) Colours vs Patterns
This really comes down to your own preference. However darker colours and patterns will hide dirt better so your hammock will look cleaner for longer. Lighter colours on the other hand are less likely to fade in the sun.

Our suspended hammocks are available in a variety of sizes. Select your size from our preset options and then someone will be in touch to get your exact measurements. Our hammocks are made by hand to your exact specifications, but please remember that this is a natural product so allow some tolerance for stretch.
Our ropes are made from polyester which has less stretch, is longer lasting, stronger and less susceptible to wear. You can choose from white, green, grey (taupe), brown or beige (oatmeal) colours.
Fixing your hammock
There is no exact science to fixing your hammock and every project is different. Depending on which option you select, our hammocks can be manufactured with a fabric outer with metal press studs, rope loops (with or without metal rings) or rope prepared for poles installations - all spaced evenly apart (at 20cm intervals). You can then use these holes to fix to your structure so the weight is evenly distributed across your structure.
You can fix your suspended hammock to wooden joists, steel beams or using metal poles. We supply fixings for wood and steel, but unfortunately, due to the size and costs of posting, we do not offer metal poles at present and recommend getting these fabricated yourself.
Will my structure be strong enough?
Our suspended ceiling hammocks are extremely strong but they are only as strong as the structure that supports them. Most of our customers install the hammocks on wooden joists or pre-installed metal beams which are inherently very strong and therefore it is unlikely they will ever encounter forces strong enough to cause them to fail. However, if you are in doubt please contact a structural engineer for advice.
