Are you planning of buying a hammock? There are many types of these units that you can go for. The most common ones that you can buy include:
It’s also known as string style and is one of the oldest styles. It resembles the original fishing-net style. It’s style gives you maximum ventilation without sacrificing your comfort. To install it you should secure it to trees or on a stand. When you lie on it, it will surround you up to your hips and legs.
While Mayan hammocks are great units to have, they usually don’t last for a long time if you use them outside. To be on the safe side you should use them indoors. If you have to use them outdoors you should always remove them immediately after use.
They are also known as jungle or tropical hammocks. When you sleep on the units, you rest like a pod. They are usually made from different materials such as rope, string and fabric. Although, the units are very comfortable to lie in, it’s usually difficult to get in and out of them.
This modern invention spreads your weight load more evenly and allows you easier access when getting in and out of it. To install it you have to spread it widely and attach it to metal bars at the head and foot of the hammock.
While the unit allows you to spread your weight evenly, the suspension is less stable due to the high metacentric gravity.
There are many types of these units. To install the hammock you need to have only one suspension point. The head of the hammock suspends from the tree, post or wall while the single leg supports the hammock’s foot. While there are some that allow two people to rest in them, many one-tree hammocks are designed for only one person.
This one is ideal for small babies-those are up to six months. The cool thing with these units is that they stimulate the baby’s gestational environment. The hammocks are made from soft materials such as calico cotton and easily adjust to the weight of the baby.
These are some of the popular types of hammocks that you need to know about. When buying the units always consider your needs. You should also consider where you buy them from-as rule of thumb you should buy them from reputable stores.
