Portable Aerial Yoga Rig - Easy to Install
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
