Only the heaviest-weight steel in the industry is used for our stands - for safety, sturdiness and solid good looks, handsomely finished with a lightly textured Cape Shield powder coat. The Tri-Beam Hammock stand, an original design, couldn't be simpler to assemble - no tools needed. The award-winning Roman Arc stand is crafted from Southern cypress. A distinctive watertight softwood that is finished with a hand-application of a honey-gold sealer. The Aluminum Arc stand has all the sturdiness of the other stands, but with heightened weatherability and yet considerably more lightweight.
