Bramblecrest launches new waterproof fabrics

by | May 7, 2019 | News, Product News, Products | 0 comments


Bramblecrest has experienced a sharp rise in sales of woven furniture. As a result, there’s a growing demand for cushions made with fabric that can be outside throughout the year.

In response, the new Panama range uses all-weather fabric upholstered to the frame. This removes the need for loose cushions.

The fabric is made with a solution dyed acrylic and is coloured throughout. This give a colour fastness and high resistance to wear.

The fabric is waterproof. A liner prevents water ingress. It also features frost and mould resistant technology.
The range can be left outside all season with minimal maintenance required.

Bramblecrest recommends ta cover for long periods of non-use.

Bramblecrest has also developed new season-proof cushions for all 2019 ranges. These feature taped and sealed seams and a water-resistant lining.

After wiping off any surface water, people can sit on the seating within a short time, without having to worry about dampness. The new technology also increases the fabrics’ stain, mould and frost resistance properties.
Tim Pennell, National Sales Manager, says, “Our new fabrics feel much softer than other water-resistant ones. They look great too.

“We’re trying to find ways to make garden furniture maintenance free. The Panama range is already proving very popular.”

“Having to move cushions or cover entire sets can be time-consuming. It’s not practical.

“Consumers are now realising our new ranges do withstand the extremes of the British weather. A significant upturn in sales are testament to this.’’
