Is furniture repairable if slightly damaged or parts get worn?
We can carry out minor weave repairs on most of the weave ranges. The Calmtex fabric is replaceable on chairs and loungers. Footstoppers and glass bumpers are available as replacement hardware.
Is wind a factor with furniture?
Frames are light weight and in high wind conditions can be blown around causing weave to graze or snap and frames could be damaged. Custom- made PVC covers can be ordered to protect any furniture items.
Are cushions suitable to be left outside?
Cushions are made from medium density foam and covered in weather resistant, fade resistant fabric. It is not recommended to leave cushions out in very wet conditions as moisture can penetrate through seams to the foam, which will rot. All covers are removable and washable.
How should I clean the furniture?
Firstly, NEVER EVER clean the furniture with aggressive cleaning agents, especially those with Ammonia like Handy Andy. The chemicals in these kinds of cleaning agents have a bad affect on nearly all materials.
Especially if they are not washed off or removed completely and the hot sun bakes the chemicals into the furniture. Always use water or a very mild soapy solution.
Which one of your products needs the least maintenance and why?
Our Calmtex range requires the least maintenance as it is manufactured from powder coated aluminium frames and the weave used is made from HDPE (High Density Polyethylene), a synthetic rattan material that is extremely durable.
How long will the furniture last?
Again this depends on where the furniture is located and the type of materials. All our products carry a Warranty which differs depending on material type.
Can you leave your products outside?
Yes, absolutely you can leave them outside, all our products are manufactured for outdoor use. But anything left outside, totally exposed to the elements will need some kind of care and maintenance. The amount of maintenance will vary depending on what materials the furniture is made from and where the furniture is located. For example, furniture near the sea will require a lot more maintenance than furniture located inland.
