This furniture is also known as patio furniture, outside furniture, or garden furniture. It is specifically designed to be used outdoors. This means that it is made to withstand the elements and is specifically durable enough to stand up against all the challenges Mother Nature puts on your backyard. The most common materials used for making this kind of furniture are resin, teak and wrought iron.
When looking for the ideal set of outdoor patio furniture sets, it is important that you check the furniture’s weatherproofness. You should look for materials with high resistance to rotting. It is important to ensure that furniture is water resistant when you shop around. This can be achieved by some manufacturers using special resins in the chairs.
Resin is resistant to water, mildew, and mould. However, it is not fully UV-rays resistant. To address this issue, furniture manufacturers may apply a UV resistant coating. This is an important feature to look for as the UV rays can slowly break down the resin, eventually causing it to deteriorate or even shatter. If this is a concern, then you might want to invest in furniture made of high quality hardwood.
Iron wrought furniture is extremely resistant to weather but does not have full UV resistance. Its colour can fade easily when exposed to the sun. You should choose iron outdoor furniture made from hardwood trees if you want durable furniture that can withstand harsh weather conditions. These furniture sets not only look great but are also extremely strong and durable and will not easily be damaged by adverse weather conditions.
A blow away system is another important feature to look for when looking for lightweight patio furniture. Blow away systems are designed to ensure that the pieces that are being purchased remain lightweight and avoid them from tipping over when exposed to the strong UV rays of the sun. However, because blow away systems are designed to stay lightweight, some sets can have quite a large weight depending on the extras that have been added to the set. An iron set with a table, umbrella, and wooden pergola weigh up to 50 pounds.
Patio furniture sets are often made from plastic frames that can crack in harsh weather conditions. Plastic frames don’t provide the same support as wooden frames and can become brittle. The plastic pieces can become very heavy and will make it difficult for people to lift.
