The 2 things we love about our great country are the enemies of outdoor furniture. A UV resistant element can be present in a PVC chair which will provide some inherent protection against the harsh sun. It should not however be considered as a silver bullet and a life-long protection. It will however keep the furniture looking good for longer.
Salt breeze brings with it problems for mild steel furniture however solutions are available to prolong the life of your investment. Let me list a few:
- Galvanised coating being applied prior to a powder coated finish.
- Aluminium frame which will corrode but won’t rust.
- Stainless steel ensuring that a marine grade product is used.
- Fully moulded PVC chair or table
The fully moulded PVC options are becoming more widely available providing sound and visually attractive solutions in outdoor spaces.
Every club, restaurant, bar and café seeks to provide a unique environment and atmosphere. The furniture selection will play a major role in that, in addition to the colour palate and accessories etc. The look and feel of the space will provide the first impression and you will never get a second chance to make a good first impression. A lasting impression is however only supported by comfortable, well throughout and appropriate furniture that goes well beyond look and feel. The task will always be a balance between form and functionality. Those who are able to get that balance right will see their guests come back and bring their family and friends with them.
