Versatility – the components of this rattan sofa set could be used separately or you could position them together in a number of different configurations.
At Tenafly we use 5.0mm core round weave to manufacture our top of the range rattan garden sofa set for a number of reasons:
aesthetics – the round weave gives a solid classic look
more substantial furniture – it takes much more raw material to make a round weave product as the round rattan fibre is thicker than flat rattan fibre
strength – it takes much longer to weave round rattan fibre but the end product is heavier and lasts longer
better cushions – high-grade cushion material/foam is specified to complement the round rattan and the cushions are boxed and piped
cleaning – this rattan is easily cleaned even with a high powered jet wash.
Also known as resin weave or woven wicker, rattan outdoor furniture is basically extruded polypropylene fibre, woven onto a metal frame. Polypropylene was first used in the 1980s in the garden furniture industry to manufacture stacking resin chairs, loungers and garden tables.
Virgin Aluminium – our superior round weave rattan patio furniture has aluminium frames to ensure the strongest welding. The round extruded polypropylene is woven to the powder-coated aluminium frame, unlike some manufacturers who use a less expensive steel frame which is prone to rust.
Grade A Polypropylene – we use only grade A round polypropylene weave to ensure over 20 years of outside use. Tested to +40°c and -40°c, our polypropylene is frostproof and will not rot.
Finished Feet – all the legs on our rattan garden furniture have a finishing aluminium cap which eliminates unravelling and minimizes wear.
Nylon Feet – to stop chipping and marking.
Packaging – all of our rattan garden furniture is mail order packaged to eliminate carrier damage.
