Patio furniture must be able to withstand all elements—rain, snow, and sun. When looking for cushions, you may notice that many suppliers use polyester pillow fiber for their outdoor cushions. Polyester fiber is inexpensive, and it becomes compressed and distorted in a short time. FoamOrder’s outdoor, dry-fast (reticulated) foam is resilient and durable, and should last up to 10 years with normal use. It has porous properties which let water flow through it, thus reducing latent water and moisture, and significantly reducing the chances for mildew and mold. Our outdoor foam for patio cushions comes in three firmness options, Soft, Medium and Firm, and we offer a broad range of weather-resistant, durable Sunbrella® fabrics to keep your patio cushions looking modern and stylish. With FoamOrder patio cushions, your patio swing, seats, chairs, and other patio furniture will stay plush and comfortable all year long.
We recommend dacron batting for indoor or outdoor patio cushions, generally with a book wrap. Dacron batting gives patio furniture cushions a full, comfortable, rounded look. Without dacron your patio cushions may show wrinkles in the fabric. Dacron provides an additional layer of comfortable padding between the foam and cover, making your patio cushions as comfortable as possible. If you really don’t want batting, then order your foam slightly thicker (1/4" to 1/2") than the case to make sure it fills in as much as possible.
