How We Make Our Outdoor Slings for Patio Chairs
At Westend Cushions & Umbrellas, we put time and care into each and every sling we make. Since each sling will have unique dimensions and use different fabrics, each sling is custom made to fit each piece of your furniture individually.
Take Precise Measurements
The first thing we do when we receive your furniture is measure each and every piece of your patio set. While at first glance each piece of your outdoor furniture set may appear to have identical dimensions, and most of the time that is the case, there are some important exceptions that have to be accounted for.
Make Sure the Sling is Just Tight Enough
How tightly each area of the sling is sewn is of the utmost importance. Depending on how the sling rails are bolted to the frame, where the stretcher bars are located, and whether bracing is present, slings will fit better if certain areas are sewn in more tightly. This is especially common in the bend between the seat and the back, as well as in the mid to upper back area.
Along with ensuring a perfect fit, some types of fabrics will pucker or quickly sag if they are not stretched tightly enough. That is why we carefully go through each and every stage of the process in our shop in Hemet, California, ensuring a firm, trim fit.
We Use High-Quality Sling Fabric Textures
We primarily use two different textures of sling fabric, either going with a sling chair mesh or a wicker weave. Below, we will identify the differences between the two main types of sling fabric textures we use at Westend Cushions & Umbrellas.
Sling Chair Mesh
A PVC-coated mesh is incredibly strong and sturdy, making it the best material for outdoor furniture. It can comfortably and safely hold a person’s body weight while remaining weather resistant. This durable mesh is your go-to for reupholstering sling chairs.
Wicker weave fabric is a type of vinyl coated polyester mesh, featuring a dobby weave designed to mimic natural furniture materials like wicker, cane, straw, wood and more. Enjoy a charming, natural look with all of the benefits of expertly engineered manmade materials!
