Ratana Outdoor Furniture is built to withstand tough weather conditions such as our west coast Vancouver Island environment. Their Sunbrella brand fabric prevents colorful cushions from fading hot sun. But as everyone knows, if you don’t like the weather on Vancouver Island, give it a minute and it will change. So outdoor furniture in our area needs to be able to stand up to both rain and shine.
Ratana takes great pride in offering reticulated foam on all their luxury outdoor seating collections. Unlike traditional polyurethane foam, which soaks up water like a sponge, reticulated foam is an open cell material.
Reticulated foam’s open pores allow water and air to easily flow through the seat cushion. Whether direct moisture (like rain or liquid spills) or dew, mist, fog or other environmental elements, Ratana’s foam cushions will completely shed moisture to provide a fast-drying, comfortable seat.
Resists Mold & Mildew
Ratana’s reticulated foam cushions are also treated with an antimicrobial agent to prevent the growth of mold and mildew. This germicide combined with the open cell foam creates a virtually maintenance free cushion in sun, rain, and snow.
