Why Should You Use Fibreglass Furniture?

DKY 881

During the 1940’s a significant amount of research was undertaken in creating and using fibreglass.

The first mass produced chairs using this highly mouldable 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 colours 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 fibreglass 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 fibreglass are placed in the mould over the resin layer to give the furniture structure. 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.

Lightweight

Compared to timber, metal or concrete furniture, fibreglass is very lightweight. This means that items such as bench seats can be easily relocated from indoors to outdoors or wherever you need them.

FRP has the properties of steel at 25% of its weight. It has a high strength to weight ratio. They use fibreglass reinforced plastic in the production of pedestrian bridges so it clearly stands up to these forces.

FRP is resistant to splinter and rot. Fibreglass is also shatterproof, resistant to salt, mould ,mildew and frost, therefore you can leave our furniture outdoors. It will keep on going virtually forever always looking great.

The furniture is resistant to UV rays. Fibreglass reinforced plastic has great fire resistance as well.

They really don’t require maintenance. Just a wipe over with a damp rag or maybe some light detergent will bring back their shiny appearance.
