Can Rattan Lounge Set Be Used Outdoors from insharechair's blog

Top quality synthetic rattan will have high-class, rustproof frames which are made from aluminium. Aluminium does not rust and therefore it is fine to leave outside in the cold and wet weather. High-quality rattan should also have a strong weave that is protected from UV rays. We recommend PE rattan as opposed to PU or PVC rattan. PE Rattan Lounge Set is recyclable and better for the environment as well as being designed to look like natural rattan. The real beauty of PE rattan is that it will withstand outdoor elements such as humidity or damp conditions, unlike natural rattan which will break down and become mildewed in wet environments.

Using Rattan Outdoors

Rattan, commonly used as the caning material to build the frame of a chair or table, is also used for the woven rattan portions of some furniture. While these fibers are extremely durable in both of these applications, they are essentially dried-out plant matter. Exposure to constant sunlight, rain or continual changes in temperature or humidity will affect your rattan furniture, even if treated with a sealer containing a UV protectant. If using rattan outdoors, cart it inside during harsh weather and place a cover over it when not in use to prolong its usefulness. Rattan lasts far longer on a protected porch or indoors than it will left out exposed to the elements for months on end.

If you have high-quality rattan garden furniture, you can leave it outside all year round without weathering, but your furniture may be exposed to other external elements that may require your attention. However, there is plenty you can do to add extra protection to your furniture during the winter.

Additionally, can I leave my outdoor cushions outside? Outdoor fabrics, such as Sunbrella®, are moisture, mildew and fade resistant. Generally, this means if you leave the cushions uncovered during a rainstorm, the rain will bead up and roll off. Should cushions be left out in the rain, as soon as it stops, shake or wipe off excess water and let them air out a bit.

Keeping this in view, how do I protect my rattan furniture outside?

Protect garden furniture in winter First of all, wash it with soapy water, like you've been doing throughout the summer and allow it to dry thoroughly. Put on the covers. Store the furniture somewhere warm and dry, like a garage or spare room, away from any damp or frost.

Can garden furniture be left outside?

Wooden Garden Furniture Normally good quality wooden furniture will be treated for the outdoor weather and will be fine to store outside. Like with all furniture it is always advisable to cover in order to protect it from bird droppings, insects or dirt.
