Why Should You Use Fibreglass Furniture?
During the 1930’s and the 1940’s a significant amount of research was undertaken in creating and using fiberglass .
The first mass produced chairs using this highly moldable tactile material was in 1950. This produced a practical, robust design that was easy to clean and suitable for both indoor and outdoor locations.
Fibreglass reinforced polymer allows a myriad of colors to be used in the manufacture of any product.

9 Benefits you receive when you purchase Fibreglass Furniture
Fibreglass Furniture is made of a composite material formed from fibres of spun glass mixed and held together with resin. Often it is referred to as FRP or fiberglass reinforced plastic. The furniture is manufactured using the following process The resin is mixed and poured into the mould then brushed on the mould walls. Then sheets of fiberglass are placed in the mould over the resin layer to give the furniture structure. lt is then that a chemical reaction takes place. The fiberglass and the resin heat up and harden. This creates a product of immense strength with similar properties to steel but at only a quarter of the density.
