Quality all-weather wicker
furniture is impervious to the forces of both Mother
Nature and your day to day use. It will not fade in the sun, it will not become
brittle and crack in the cold, it will not blemish when splashed with red wine,
and it will not rust– even when left on a beach! Furthermore it can do all this
without maintenance! But how?
Synthetic Wicker Fibers
Unlike traditional wicker furniture which is woven from abaca
(palm) strands, modern outdoor wicker furniture is woven from new weather
resistant synthetics that are far more durable than abaca. However it is very
important to know what type of synthetic is used to make your furniture, as not
all synthetics perform alike, and some are also extremely toxic. Please do
not purchase any outdoor furniture made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Not
only is PVC a less durable choice, but it emits toxic compounds during
production and decomposition that are very harmful to the environment. Instead,
the best choice is to purchase all-weather wicker furniture that is made from
Be Green, Choose Polyethylene
As long as you know that the outdoor wicker furniture set that you
are interested in is made from Polyethylene, then you do not have to purchase a
brand name synthetic wicker fiber. However, like most industries, many
furniture manufacturers and retailers will tell you anything in order to make a
sale. We guarantee that you are purchasing top quality furniture that does not
destroy the planet.
Goodbye Sun Bleached Patio Furniture!
Quality synthetic wicker strands have UV proofing additives that
can resist fading for decades. When combined with quality outdoor fabrics such
as the ones that MH2G uses, synthetic wicker furniture will
keep its color far longer than traditional outdoor furniture. It is truly
100% Prime Aluminum Frames
Avoid steel! Though steel has its place, it should not be on your
porch, patio, balcony, or garden. When exposed to the elements steel will rust.
Even if powder coated, steel will rust because the powder coating will
inevitably become scratched with use and expose the steel. Not only is rust
ugly, but as steel rusts it expands and weakens. Due to this, we use aluminum
to make our line of resin wicker patio furniture instead.
Our competitors say that Aluminum does not rust, which is actually
half-true. Aluminum will oxidize when exposed to the elements but you cannot
see it like you can on steel or iron. Aluminum "rust" is the same
color as regular aluminum so it will stay beautiful for decades. Furthermore,
it does not expand and weaken like steel so you will never be faced with flimsy
patio furniture again! Because of its non-corrosive properties, aluminum is
also used to make important components in the automotive industry as well as in
spacecrafts and rockets. For long lasting outdoor furniture, buy aluminum!
