Outdoor Cushions Australia

Urecel quick-dry foam – Urecel quick-dry foam has been specifically designed and created for outdoor use in residential and marine locations. Unlike traditional foam, urecel quick-dry foam drains water quickly. This allows your cushions to dry a lot faster while also offering protection against the growth of mould.

Reticulated foam – With its open cell structure, reticulated foam is made up of a lot of air. This makes it incredibly lightweight and soft to sit on when used as an outdoor cushion. Resistant to mould, mildew, and chemicals, reticulated form is highly anti-microbial and will not deteriorate if it comes into contact with a range of chemicals.

If you’re worried about your outdoor cushions lasting only a few months, then we’re pleased to tell you that reticulated foam has high tensile strength. In other words, it won’t break easily when any tension or pressure is applied.

Sunbrella Outdoor Cushions

As an added bonus, reticulated foam will offer all these benefits without breaking your budget!

Sunbrella fabric – Crowned the best in outdoor cushion fabrics, Sunbrella fabrics can be used in a range of applications including patio cushions, boat covers, and awnings. Sunbrella fabric is easy to wash too. Simply slip the cover off and put it in the washing machine with the rest of your laundry.

Did you know that Sunbrella fabrics have a lifespan of approximately 10 years, even under intense outdoor use? Being both fade-resistant and water-resistant, Sunbrella fabrics are perfect for both hot summer days and cold winter months.
