Why POLYWOOD has been installed into several care homes in the past 12 months and it is the perfect outdoor furniture for the job! Care homes need outdoor furniture that is low-maintenance, sturdy and very durable to ensure it remains safe and secure for those with restricted mobility to access. Here are some of the key benefits of POLYWOOD outdoor furniture for commercial and residential customers:
POLYWOOD is totally resistant to the effects of adverse weather – snow, ice, rain, frost and strong sunshine have no effect on POLYWOOD’s innovative ‘lumber’, so it won’t warp, splinter or fade in time. If your care home is located in a coastal area you will be pleased to hear that it is resistant to the effects of salt water spray that can cause havoc with metal and some wooden furniture. POLYWOOD is built to last a lifetime so you won’t have to replace it in 3, 5- or 10-years’ time – imagine the cost savings!
NO NEED FOR WINTER STORAGE:
POLYWOOD’s weather resistance also means that it can be left out al year-round, so there is no need to find winter shelter to store your outdoor furniture. That in turn means that if there is a mild and sunny winter’s day the care home residents and their families can sit outside and enjoy some fresh air.
POLYWOOD needs nothing more than a wash with warm, soapy water if it gets dirty or dusty, but other than that it will stay looking as good as new without needing oiling, waxing, painting or treating. This frees up maintenance staff to look after paths and other key areas to ensure residents can move around your outdoor spaces safely.
DURABLE AND STURDY:
We understand that those with poor balance and limited mobility need furniture that is sturdy and durable so that they feel safe and secure when sitting down in and rising from a seat. POLYWOOD is designed to last a lifetime and has a reassuring weight so that it doesn’t slide or move as you sit in it. There are also furniture collections with wide arms that help residents when they need to stand up, as well as collections with supportive cushions for extra comfort.
That innovative ‘lumber’ that POLYWOOD is crafted from is actually made from recycled plastic milk bottles! Approximately 500 bottles are made into one Adirondack chair, ensuring that piles of single-use plastic stay out of landfill and is made into brilliant, long-lasting furniture instead.
