Hammock Hanging Tips
Everyone is happy to imagine sunny day, lying in comfortable hammock. But when it comes to hanging, some questions arose. So, if you want to get full pleasure and relax from your hammock, please read these simple tips.
For full hammock pleasure, please mind the following tips:
1. Hammocks without spreader bars are hung so that they sag way down.
2. The hanging loops of the hammocks are fastened at approx. head height and about 3 m apart.
3. Hammocks are fastened using ropes (tree / beam) or hooks (wall or ceiling for hanging chairs).
4. If trees or walls are further apart, the hammocks can be extended by ropes or chains. The suspension point then needs to be selected somewhat higher.
The right height for hanging chairs
How much space do I need for a hanging chair? It's easy to work it out...
Each hanging chair model has different space requirements. Depending on the size of the hanging chair and the weight of the user, the height needed may vary
With an average load, the minimum suspension heights listed below (from the floor to the top loop of the hanging chair) will apply. You have to add to this the length of the fastening fixture (hook or the like). It is important to bear in mind that when first used the hanging chair is likely to stretch – so don't worry if the height strikes you at first glance as excessive.
The recommended distance from the floor to the lowest point of the hanging chair is always around 40-50 cm when loaded – whichever hanging chair is being used. This makes it easy to get on and off the chair.
