All our furniture is designed to leave outdoors all year round. Sunbrella® "Natte" Fabric Stock Fabric Colours - Slate Natte, Stone Natte Westminster are suppliers of the unique Sunbrella® “In & Out” range of all-weather fabrics. Sunbrella® is a fabric made of acrylic fibres with pigmentation added prior to extrusion, offering a rich look and feel of cotton, but doesn’t fade or degrade.

The furniture can be left outside all year round and can be simply cleaned with plain water. To remove more stubborn stains, apply a mild solution of soapy water or a water and bleach solution, or carefully clean with a pressure washer on a low setting. When new the cushions can be firm due to the fire retardant but after a few uses and water permutation the cushions do soften.

All outdoor cushions and fabric lounge furniture are required by UK law to conform to UK Domestic Fire Regulations BS5852 Part 1 & Part 2. A specialised fire-retardant treatment is applied to both the quick dry foam filling and the Sunbrella® fabric during manufacture. This combined with the use of heavy-duty high quality “memory foam” increases the weight up to 3 times heavier than other non-treated products. This keeps the furniture and cushions stable in windy conditions and additionally ensures the fabric is tauter, which reduces wrinkles in the fabric.

Mould & Mildew Stains Our fabrics do not promote mildew or mould growth; however, it may grow on dirt and other foreign substances if not removed from the fabric. Sunbrella® fabric is an incredibly durable and weather resistant fabric. Please ensure that cushions/furniture are fully dry before covering to avoid excess mould and mildew/algae which could permanently stain the fabric.

UV & Fading Traditional dyeing processes only leave colours on the surface of fibre, so they easily fade. Sunbrella® upholstery fabric is a densely woven outdoor fabric, full of rich colour. Made from 100% solution dyed acrylic fibres which are saturated to the core with highly UV-stable pigments. This makes the fabric resistant to fading and degrading effects of sunlight. The Sunbrella® collection is also treated with CleanGuard, making it resistant to stains, salt water & chlorine.

Olefin Fabric Westminster use Axroma 100% Mackintosh Olefin fabric. Olefin is an environmental synthetic textile which is UV & fade resistant due to being solution dyed, environmentally friendly & is manufactured clear of topical chemicals.

PP/Olefin fabric resists growth of bacterial and mildew & is quick drying, naturally repelling any surface water. Being pore less it is difficult for dirt and stains to adhere to, but surface debris can leave minor marks or stains. The fabric can be cleaned easily, either by gently hand washing with just plain warm water or a warm soapy water solution, then leave it to air dry, or carefully clean with a pressure washer on a low setting.

For any stubborn stains you can hand wash gently using a water & bleach solution or place in the washing machine on a delicate wash cycle (use a cool temperature only) & and then thoroughly air dry. Do not iron, heat treat or dry clean Olefin fabric as this will remove the protective chemical.

Quick Dry Foam Westminster uses an advanced, high-performance foam designed specifically for outdoor cushions & furniture. The porous open-cell structure allows water to drain very rapidly and fresh air to circulate freely. After a heavy downpour and in good weather conditions the furniture can be ready to use within an hour.

Powder Coated Aluminium Most Westminster products comprise of AkzoNobel powder coated aluminium. This powder coating is safe, sustainable, totally lead & solvent free & meets a wide range of global industry coating standards. AkzoNobel aluminium gives excellent performance & is highly durable, making it perfect for use in domestic & industrial outdoor garden furniture.

A soapy warm water solution can be used to clean the powder coated surface, if necessary. If more cleaning is required, then a small amount of white spirit may be used, but the area must be thoroughly cleaned off afterwards with a water and soap solution & the item left to air dry before use.

Textilene Textilene is a manmade mesh fabric woven from polyester with a PVC coating. Incredibly durable its resistant to fading, easy to clean & resistant to mould & mildew. One of its key advantages is its ability to harsh weather conditions & heavy rain or harsh UV rays it maintains its appearance over time.

To clean, simply brush off any debris with a dry cloth & then wash with a soapy warm water solution. Allow this to soak in for a minute, then rinse off with clean water & let it thoroughly air dry. If preferred, you can scrub it gently with a soft bristle brush or sponge & a warm soap water solution, or carefully clean with a pressure washer on a low setting.

Weave Westminster use Wintech PE Weave which is made of non-toxic & recyclable materials. Polyethylene (PE) is a synthetic resin, rather than a natural weave rattan which makes it moisture & tear resistant, strong & pliable as well as pest/ fungus free.

For daily care, simply wipe it clean using a soft, dry cloth. To remove dirt or spills, wipe over the weave with damp cloth or rinse it off with fresh water & leave it to air dry. For any more stubborn surface dirt you can clean it using a damp soft sponge & soapy warm water solution, but ensure you leave it to air dry before use, or carefully clean with a pressure washer on a low setting.

Sintered Stone Tops Our Sintered stone 10mm thick tabletops are highly scratch, UV and temperature resistant making them strong & durable year after year. Hygienic and very easy to clean, they have almost zero water absorption meaning they can be left out in all-weathers all year round, even in frosty conditions. Although dirt cannot penetrate the sintered surface, we do recommend cleaning the surface to prevent the build-up of grease and contaminants using a cloth & warm water and soap solution.

Enamelled Glass Tops Westminster enamelled glass table tops are made using either 5mm tempered glass with an enamelled glass layer which ensures maximum strength and durability. The surface is highly resistant to scratches, UV, high and low temperatures and both tables tops are hygienic, very easy to clean with almost zero water absorption making them frost and weather proof. Although dirt cannot penetrate the surface, we do recommended cleaning the surface in order to prevent the build-up of grease and contaminants with warm water and mild detergents. Enamelled glass table tops include a treatment to help expel water from the surface, and require retreating once a year with a thin layer of WD40 applied with a dry cloth, which also elevates any blemishes.

Poly Teak Poly Teak is a manmade environmentally friendly material that looks & feels like real Teak wood. 100% water resistant & durable, easy clean & crack, splinter & rot resistant, our products can remain outdoors for season after season. To clean Poly Teak use a soapy warm water solution & wipe it over with soft sponge/cloth or use a gentle bristle brush. Another option is to use a hose to spray your furniture and then wipe it dry using a clean cloth. Alternatively, you can also use a pressure washer on a low setting & leave to air dry, and even sandpaper can be used to refurbish if necessary.

For tough stains or dirt use a rougher sponge to scrub at the dirt and then wipe it away with a clean cloth or rinse off if preferred. If you need some extra cleaning power, you can use a solution of 25% bleach to 75% water when you wash.

Teak Westminster uses solid hardwood sourced & harvested ethically. Its impervious to all weathers & rotting, resistant to splitting & is long lasting. The naturally occurring oil within the wood help make it weatherproof and strong & as it ages and weathers naturally it develops a silvery surface hue. Surface dirt can be cleaned off gently with a dry cloth. If you prefer to wash it, use a soft brush and plain water, or a solution of soapy water & a small splash of white wine vinegar or bleach. Always go with the wood grain to clean Teak, not against it & rinse it thoroughly & leave to air dry. There are many Teak cleaning & maintenance products available on the market, please ensure you follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully.

Parasol Fabric Westminster parasol canopies are made 100% solution dyed Olefin. It has 50+ UV protection & covers more than 98% of UVA & VB rays without fading. This fabric is water, oil, alcohol & mould/stain resistant so it’s the perfect choice for outdoor parasols.

As liquid repels off the fabric, due to its tight, non-porous weave, but if you do wish to clean it you can use a clean cloth with plain cold water to remove any dirt or debris.

Parasol Disclaimer - Due to the cantilever parasol mechanisms and sliding parts the aluminium will wear in sensitive areas especially where aluminium parts touch each other. We strongly advocate the use of a base stand with all Westminster parasols. Always close parasols when not in use or unattended and do not use in windy conditions.

Parasol Bases Both our Standard and 40Kgs stand and 120Kgs come with our unique grey colour coded concrete. The 40kgs stand designed for a single pole parasol come with a Stainless-Steel tube to allow for a 38 or 48mm pole. Also included a pull-out handle and wheels for easy moving. The 120Kgs Base is designed to be used without Twilight cantilever parasols.

All-Weather Covers Designed to cover deep seating modular sofas, tables, chairs, or loungers, Westminster furniture covers are available in various sizes & made from polyester PVC coated fabric. Please note our all-weather covers are universal and not tailor made for each individual product.

The covers are designed to leave a gap underneath, to allow the circulation of fresh air & to release moisture, ensuring the product underneath remains mould & damp free. To clean either dust off the covers with a dry cloth or simply wipe them over with a damp clean cloth.

Bean Bags Our quilted beanbags are made from super tough 100% Polyester which is wipe clean, fade resistant & filled with high quality EPS polystyrene beans. Double stitched seams on its UV resistant fabric provide strength, making them hard wearing on all garden surfaces, yet lightweight to move to store. To clean simply brush off any debris with a dry cloth or hand wash with a warm soapy water & leave to air dry. Do not put in the washing machine or tumble dry. Not recommended to leave permanently outside as water will eventually permeate through stitching.
