Roman arc hammocks are some of the most artful and elegant hammocks
available. The roman arc hammock stand is distinctive and durable.
The hammock stand supports both sides of the hammock with a large,
swooping arc that takes each side of the hammock and attaches it to
ropes. The architecture and smooth arcing curves are offered in two
styles - each is highly distinctive.
The Original Roman Arc stand is crafted from eight layers of laminated
cypress wood while the Roman Arc II is made of 5 layers. Both versions
are identically designed for easy assembly and the curved sections of
the stand all stack neatly for compact storage when disassembled, if
desired. The roman are stand is the highest end stand available.
It is recommended that the wood -- which is unfinished natural cypress
-- be treated once a year with a water repellent to preserve the
beautiful yellow color of cypress. If untreated the wood also turns to
an equally beautiful gray and hardens for long wear. Both stands are
extremely rigid and sturdy and will far exceed the necessary 450 lb
weight rating for the hammock.
Roman arc hammock stands are not cheap. Each of these stands can
cost much more than traditional hammock stands to purchase. However,
the aesthetic benefit that an owner of this type of hammock stand
derives can be well worth the cost. These types of stands are also
some of the most sturdy and elegant available.
