Sun Lounger Materials

Once you know the shape and style of sun lounger that suits your tastes and needs, it is time to decide on the material it is made of. Things to consider here include your budget of course, but don’t forget to take in the cost and time of maintenance. Some of the more expensive materials to require more maintenance too. Simple is often the best way to go when it comes to relaxing outdoors.


Many prefer the appearance of resin-made furniture because it can produce more modern styles than PVC – and can mimic rattan. Check when buying whether it is moulded or woven. Moulded is cheaper, but woven will have a more realistic effect. As with PVC, don’t forget ample cushions.


Aluminium is often used for the frame of sin loungers because it is light, looks good, and does not rust. It is an excellent choice for sun lounger frames of a variety of styles.


PVC is durable, requires almost no maintenance, and is usually a good price. The material will soak up a lot of heat from the sun though, so be sure you have a cushion that provides full coverage for those hot days of summer!


Wood sun loungers look great, whether they are made from teak, pine, acacia or other woods. They do, however, require regular maintenance to keep them looking good over more than one or two seasons.

What are the seating areas made from?

Textilene is the most common material for making the fabric portion of sun loungers that are frames with aluminium or other stiff products. It is flexible, holds up well to weather, and can come in many colours. It is made by weaving PVC fibres.
