Resin patio furniture. Resin garden furniture. Resin outdoor furniture


Resin furniture chairs are light and stackable
WARNING
Resin chairs are less rigid than those made of other materials and should not be placed on the lawn but on solid surfaces. Persons with above average weight should never use a resin chair. I have personally witnessed, on three occasions, where a chair just buckled under excessive weight.

Resin patio furniture. Resin garden furniture. Resin outdoor furniture
Patio furniture, also known as garden furniture, is designed for outdoor use and as such is made of weather resistant materials.
Resin outdoor furniture is a popular choice because it is relatively inexpensive, waterproof, light and easy to move, stackable or foldable for compact storage and can last 20 years or more. Resin patio furniture is often made of recycled plastic. While resin furniture was first made available in white only, today customers have a choice of many colours such as grey, green, dark brown and taupe. Resin patio or deck furniture can be molded to resemble real wood or wicker. Garden furniture made of resin include complete patio sets (table and chairs), stackable or folding chairs, reclining chairs, chaise lounges, side tables, patio or deck storage bins and more.
Storage bins can be used for storing pool toys, lounge and chair cushion, garden tools and more. Some bin lids can also be used, if necessary, for additional seating.
When shopping around for resin furniture compare thickness and weight. Furniture made of heavier material is stronger and will last longer.
Many manufacturers claim that their line of "all weather" patio and deck furniture is maintenance free. Well, you can maybe leave them all year outside if you live "down south" but if you happen to live "up north" your patio or garden furniture will guaranteed have that "weathered" look after a few seasons. Life expectancy of your resin furniture can be extended through regular maintenance.





Resin furniture comes in many colours such as grey, green, dark brown and taupe.

Maintenance
- The looks of resin furniture will be affected by air born pollutants and bird droppings. Bird droppings are acidic and should be removed immediately to prevent lasting damage to your resin outdoor furniture. To protect your outdoor furniture from these pollutants you should apply twice a year a good quality resin furniture wax.
- There are several cleaners available but it seems that Clorex Pro Outdoor cleaner (applied by brush) and Mr. Clean Magic Erasers are excellent products for rejuvenating the good looks of resin furniture.
- When not in use tip the chairs. Standing water will trap dust. When the water evaporates it will leave stains.
- In northern climates it is recommended to store the furniture inside.


TIP
Try to stay away from white or grey furniture, which tends to get dirty and is easily stained by the rain.
