POLYWOOD Outdoor Furniture

Ourdoor furniture chairs on deck


Naturally we wanted to look for a real wood product when we decided to start carrying outdoor patio furniture. However, while there are weather resistant species such as cedar, teak, and redwood that make fine outdoor furniture, we still worried about the longevity of the furniture, maintenance, and forest conservation. Conserving the environment is at the core of our mission and is a key factor in our decision making process. While researching high end outdoor furniture we discovered a material known as recycled plastic lumber (RPL). It is both durable and environmentally friendly, so we knew we had found our product.

Using recycled plastic lumber in place of regular wood for outdoor furniture has several important environmental advantages:

  • It reduces the amount of plastic in landfills (recycling 1 ton of plastic saves 7.4 cubic yards of landfill space)
  • Because POLYWOOD is so durable, it reduces plastic in landfills two fold as this furniture will last for many years longer than furniture made using less durable materials
  • It puts less demand on our forests, especially vulnerable tropical rain forests. Learn more about how even our solid wood furniture is made from sustainably harvested woods by visiting our page on forest conservation
  • POLYWOOD is an extremely durable all weather material that does not usually require any maintenance other than the occasional cleaning with soap and water, resulting in a reduced demand for harsh cleaning chemicals
  • While the manufacture of plastics requires the burning of fossil fuels like oil and natural gas, making plastic lumber from recycled materials requires the consumption of fewer natural resources. POLYWOOD plastic lumber is made from recycled materials, making it an eco-friendly product.

POLYWOOD salt-resistant, all weather outdoor patio furniture is made in America and is beautiful, sturdy and low maintenance. It will stay strong and look like new season after season. In fact, we back it with a lifetime guarantee.

What is So Special About POLYWOOD All Weather Furniture?

POLYWOOD is not to be confused with the typical thin injection molded plastic furniture manufactured offshore that is sold by the big box stores. POLYWOOD is a thick, dense plastic product that replicates high quality tropical lumber in dimension and strength. For instance, a POLYWOOD Adirondack chair would be cut and assembled just like the wood versions with the only difference being the use of RPL, recycled plastic lumber.

This solid recycled plastic POLYWOOD lumber is produced from long-lasting, high-density polyethylene (HDPE):

  • No maintenance required other than simply washing with water
  • Impervious to harsh weather such as rain, snow, ice, and salt water
  • Insect, mold and mildew resistant
  • Heavy (an average chair weighs 40 pounds) so it won't blow away in strong ocean breezes
  • Resists corrosive substances, oil and fuels, insects, salt water spray, and other environmental stresses
  • No toxic preservatives like treated wood lumber
  • Available in natural colors, as well as white, black and a wide variety of vibrant, contemporary colors

The raw material for POLYWOOD is primarily composed of recycled plastic bottles, such as milk and detergent bottles and other HDPE post-consumer and industrial wastes. These containers are then cleaned and decontaminated to a high purity level. Lastly, it is compounded into a rigid board stock material which won't absorb moisture, rot, splinter, or crack.

POLYWOOD outdoor patio furniture offers superior weathering resistance without the water proofing, painting, staining, and other maintenance required by solid wood outdoor furniture. This innovative luxury outdoor lawn and garden furniture is recycling at its very best! Need more reasons to buy POLYWOOD furniture from us?

POLYWOOD Care & Maintenance

Care for your all weather POLYWOOD recycled plastic outdoor patio furniture is easy! All you need is a sponge or soft bristle brush and gentle soap and warm water. Make it even easier by using a high pressure washer (do not to exceed 1,500 psi). If needed, use a 1/3 bleach and 2/3 water solution to remove stubborn stains without damaging the color.

Hardware Specifications and Maintenance

The hardware used in the assembly and construction of your poly wood furniture is an 18-8 commercial grade stainless steel that has an additional "Xylan" protective and cosmetic coating. Although the hardware is highly resistant of corrosives, salt can corrode the hardware over time if the air is particularly salty, so be sure to wash the hardware too. If necessary, use a soft tooth brush to scrub the corroding areas of the hardware. We recommend the use of touch up paint in the appropriate color to protect poly wood hardware if you see any corrosion beginning to set in. Appliance touch up paint can be purchased at local hardware stores.

Sunbrella Fabrics

Sunbrella fabrics should be cleaned regularly to prevent dirt, pollen and food particles from accumulating. Regular cleaning of your outdoor cushions will eliminate the need for more frequent vigorous cleanings.
