What Makes our Hammocks Better?


Professional Studio-Quality One-Way Stretch Hammocks as Used at Bend + Fly

Our hammocks are made from 40 Denier Tricot Nylon and are superior in quality and function to other hammocks or silks – mainly because they are designed especially for aerial yoga and not aerial arts. Our hammocks are made from the best quality aerial silk that is unique in the way it provides one-way stretch (sideways stretch but not downwards). This stretchability gives this hammock a more natural feel to the contours and movement of your body – something inferior hammocks cannot achieve (most are too stretchy and cannot invert with confidence). Our hammocks are also extremely strong – rated and tested for loading up to 1300KG (13KN).

Our hammocks are the most effective apparatus to practice aerial yoga.

Here’s an Example of Stretchiness Between our Hammock and a Cheaper E-Bay Hammock

Differences in Hammock Quality

Yoga

One-Way Stretch Hammock ✅

A studio quality aerial hammock is normally one-way stretch made of nylon tricot material (as used and sold by Bend + Fly) – it has a beautiful stretchability sidewards, but little stretch downwards – meaning you can invert with confidence and not have to raise the hammock too high – a good feature especially if ceiling height is an issue.

Aerials Australia Hammock

Two-Way Stretch Hammocks ❌

Most aerial hammocks sold online fit into the two-way stretch category – which means they stretch sidewards and stretch downwards. The downwards stretch is mainly beneficial for aerial arts which feature drops, but they also can be used for aerial yoga, but you’ll need to raise the hammock higher to factor in inversions. Experienced Aerial Yogis can find these type of hammocks a little bouncy for waist high aerial yoga.

Yoga

High Stretch or No Stretch ❌

Avoid hammocks made of cheaper parachute style material that have no stretch both ways – making it not comfortable and pliable for aerial yoga. Also avoid polyester hammocks and even nylon hammocks labelled high stretch – these are too bouncy and not suitable for an aerial yoga hammock, which sits lower than an aerial arts silk – normally at waist high.

Rig Your Hammock Using Steel Rigging Plates


Rig your hammock to an exposed beam or a beam within a ceiling using our machined steel, powder-coated 5mm aerial yoga rigging plates.

How to Install Rigging Plates and Connect Hammock Accessories

How-to-Install-Rigging-Plate

Use 12mm (M12) thick steel bolts with washer and nut (stainless steel is better) to attach plate to timber beam. The length of the bolt will depend on the thickness of the beam. The picture above shows how we have them installed at Bend + Fly – with a daisy chain self-locking around the apparatus attachment hole. Use a 40mm length of rubber hose (cut down the middle) and bend to place on top of the apparatus attachment hole to protect the daisy chain from friction and possible damage.

To hang the hammock, attach the carabiner to both the daisy chain and to the choke loop (which chokes the hammock – scroll down to see how to choke a hammock)

How to Tie or 'Choke' a Hammock


Choking the Hammock Vs Tying a Knot

CHOKE-VS-KNOTTING-A-HAMMOCK

We recommend using the ‘choke’ method (pictured above on left) using rock climbing slings to tie off the hammock and enable it to attach to the carabiners and daisy chains. Choking a hammock provides more stability and makes it easier to adjust and to take on and off the carabiner. You can also take the slings on and off easily to wash.

Tying the hammock off by knotting (pictured above on right) is possible but we don’t recommend it because after applying weight into the hammock it can lock the knot so tight it can be impossible to untie. Plus this method requires more hammock length and makes getting accessories on and off more difficult.

* We always recommend confirming with your NDIS representative first

Can You Recommend a Tradesman to Install?

For rigging installs it’s recommended to use a licensed builder – who can advise the weight bearing of beams. We recommend using Hi Pages to find a suitable builder or handyman (some are a licensed builders).

What is the Weight Bearing Required to Hang a Hammock to My Ceilings?

180Kg (static load) per hanging/rigging point – 360kg in total

What is the distance between rigging points?

Shoulder width. Usually 400-600mm. We use 500mm.

 

 

What is the swing distance to allow space for the hammock?

If just inverting you wont need much space at all. If using for more dynamic poses 1.5m in front and behind and 500mm to each side of the rigging points is great.

How do I care for My Hammock?

  • You can wash on a gentle cycle – in a delicates washing bag if you have one.
  • Avoid machine drying
  • Dry in a shady spot preferably – the sun will damage and fade the material
  • Avoid wearing clothes with zippers or jewellery that can tear the hammock
