Looking for durable, high quality outdoor furniture made in the USA from eco-friendly materials that will last for years to come? Well lucky you – your search ends here with POLYWOOD® All Weather Furnishings!
What is POLYWOOD®?
POLYWOOD® is a premier wood alternative in outdoor furniture with its all-weather endurance, improved aesthetics and exceptional durability. It has the warm look and texture of real wood, without the maintenance that real wood requires. POLYWOOD® corporate headquarters is located in Indiana, where all of their products are produced. Their vision of high quality recycled furniture began in the late 1980s when the outcome of government recycling programs created steadily growing mountains of recycled plastics.
How is POLYWOOD® made?
The short answer: lots and lots of milk jugs. The raw materials are mostly derived from post-consumer bottle waste, such as milk and detergent bottles or other post-industrial material. This material is cleaned by a decontamination process to a high purity level, which removes contaminants such as food residue, paper and adhesives. It is then compounded into a rigid board stock material resulting in an eco-friendly and finished product ideally suited for outdoor furnishings. POLYWOOD® is not painted – the bold colors are embedded right in the material, and it contains UV-inhibited pigment systems that reduces fading.For optimal performance and longevity POLYWOOD® uses genuine stainless steel hardware.
Is POLYWOOD® durable?
POLYWOOD® lumber requires no waterproofing, painting, staining or similar maintenance when used in outdoor applications. The weight of a POLYWOOD® chair is similar to that of a hardwood chair averaging 30 to 50 Lbs. each. This means that even in strong winds you won’t have to worry about these bad boys blowing away. For regular maintenance simply wash the product with soap and water.
Does POLYWOOD® come with a warranty?
Yes! Every piece of POLYWOOD® furniture comes with a 20-Year Warranty. POLYWOOD® warranties to the original purchaser that, for a period of twenty years of residential use (and one year for commercial use) from the date of original purchase, under normal use and service conditions, POLYWOOD® brand high-density polyethylene (HDPE) products shall be free from material defects, and shall not splinter, crack, chip, peel, rot, or suffer structural damage from insect infestation.
