Westminster work with Sunbrella™, a fabric made of acrylic fibres with pigmentation added prior to extrusion, offering the rich look and feel of cotton but will not fade or degrade. Even in the harshest climates, Sunbrella™ provides years of carefree service with a warranty that is unheard of in the marketplace. A product so drastically different from anything else available, Sunbrella™ has grown to be trusted as the outdoor fabric that is guaranteed against the elements.
The furniture can be left outside all year round and can be simply cleaned with plain water or to remove more stubborn stains, a mild solution of soapy water and bleach or careful use of a high pressure washer. Sunbrella Cushions when new can appear to be firm due to the fire retardant treatment. After use and water permutation the cushions 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 FR 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” used for all our furniture and cushions 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.
Westminster are exclusive suppliers of the unique “Sunbrella™” “In & Out” range of all-weather fabrics. Please beware of other imitations.
Mold & 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, to ensure that your cushions/furniture continue to look their best, avoid using an all weather when cushions/furniture are still wet/damp. Please ensure that cushions/furniture are dry before covering to avoid excess mould and mildew/algae which could permanently stain the fabric.” For cleaning instructions please refer to “Company/Products” and “Product Cleaning”.
Fast Dry Foam – Westminster use 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 is ready to use within the hour.
UV and 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 making the fabric resistant to fading and degrading effects of sunlight. The Sunbrella collection is also treated with Cleangard to hold up stains, salt water, chlorine and weather-related chemicals.
All Westminster cushions comply with the British Standard fire requirements.
