Fabric Slings for Patio Furniture
Replacement slings can make your outdoor furniture like new again!
Over time, the fabric slings in patio furniture become baggy or even tear due to UV sunlight damage. This applies to slings in all types of outdoor patio, pool or lawn furniture, even though the fabrics are specifically made for outdoor use. Some last longer than others, but eventually they will need to be replaced.
With some outdoor furniture, by the time the slings are due for replacement, so are the chair frames! But in many cases the frames have years of life left in them, and all that needs to be done is replace the fabric slings.
What Type of Fabric Sling Do You Need?
There are two types of slings:
- For PVC pipe furniture with cushions, the sling is attached to the frame to support the cushion. We call these “Cushion Slings”
- All other furniture has a decorative sling that you sit or lie on directly. These are called “Seating Slings”
Cushion Slings are the type used to support cushions. They are always a grade A mesh vinyl fabric, and they are available in about a dozen solid colors. There are many styles, shapes and sizes of cushion slings. And because there have been manufacturers over the years, nothing is “standard”. Therefore we will need you to send us a sample of each different type you need.
Seating Slings are the type that you sit or lie on directly. No cushion is used with seating slings. They are made from a firmer, tighter weave fabric which is always a grade B vinyl, and they come in about 100 colors and patterns. We can make seating slings from the measurements you provide us.
