Strap in for Maximum Outdoor Comfort!
If you’ve ever been to a public pool, you’ve probably seen a strap chaise lounge chair. These popular outdoor furniture pieces are perfect for resting between laps or catching a few rays beside the water. They are also an excellent choice for the deck or patio, or anywhere you and your family want to relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of summer.
What is a Strap Lounge?
Strap furniture is much like sling furniture, in that is it typically made with a metal frame that bears the weight of the occupants while material stretched between strong, sturdy fasteners keeps them comfortable. Unlike the sling chair however, a strap chair or lounge offers the additional benefits of larger opening than mesh fabric to enhance breathability and keep occupants cool, as well as more points of adjustability for maximum comfort. As the person in the chair moves, the straps adjust individually to customize to them. It’s a wonderful sitting or sleeping experience!
Where to Use Strap Lounges
We already know that strap furniture is great for the poolside area. Typically made from durable, easy to clean vinyl, the straps are great for areas where they will encounter water, rain and the heat of the sun. Stronger than the fabric usually stretched across sling chair frames, these straps hold up to the elements better and longer.
Strap furniture is also great for the porch and patio. Sunbathing has never been easier than in a strap chaise lounge chair; just lie back and let the straps cradle your body while the sun’s warmth elevates your mood! They make an ideal addition to any outdoor décor scheme, available in a variety of colors and styles to fit any taste. Simple upkeep makes them an excellent idea for families with children, as well.
Being Repairable Makes Them Irreplaceable!
Given the fact that strap chairs have a removable and replaceable component – the vinyl straps, themselves – the longevity of their use can be extended even beyond the life of their initial straps. Chemicals from pool water, sweat and cosmetics such as sunscreen or tanning products can cause straps to wear more quickly than elements and usage alone, so replacing these parts can become necessary after several years. However, the frames are built to last many years, and can see a family through a generation of summers with the right consideration and care. All of this makes strap lounges and chairs the perfect choice for your outdoor fun, this and every year!
