Being a French word for the sun, it only makes sense for a patio furniture company to take on Soleil as their name. The furnishings made by the company will all, one day, be acquainted and reacquainted with the celestial body with each sunrise. And they enter various sun decks around South Africa very prepared for the heated, UV-ray-battles.
Soleil has ensured that their patio furniture will go the distance. The cushions are made with Soleil’s special outdoor fabrics to keep the comfy, soft bits inside the cushions protected. What makes these outdoor fabrics range so unique is the solution dyed acrylics used during their manufacture. And what makes this dyed acrylic technique so amazing is that it’s naturally resistant to rotting and mildew, as well as, to mild acids and alkalis.
In addition to the protection provided by acrylic, the fabric has also been UV-stabilised and Teflon-coated. The Teflon fabric protector has the ability to repel water, oil and soil. It also has a built-in fungicide that protects if from mould and mildew. So that gives Soleil’s patio cushions double the protection – acrylic and Teflon! With this level of protection, it’s clear that Soleil fabrics make suitable contenders for the outdoors.
Cleaning is made easy with Soleil cushions as the fabric covers are fitted with zippers. This makes their removal as simple as a quick slip. Use of normal household detergents is safe and the covers can be washed in temperatures as high as 40 degrees. The cushions are also manufactured with hi-density foam which means that their comfy innards will be more durable and retain shape for longer periods.
