Available in a wide variety of designs and colours, Sling is a generic term for a woven, open-mesh fabric made from a vinyl coated, high strength polyester yarn.PNZ uses Batyline and Twitchell outdoor slings for the Outdoor Sling Furniture Collection. It consisting of a polyester fiber covered by a coating of PVC, making it nearly impossible to tear. It is 100% synthetic and resistant to rot and mildew. Nenuphar Fibre: is made entirely from high density polyethylene (HDPE). This means it is extremely durable and resistant to all weather conditions, including strong sunlight, rain and temperatures ranging from +80 °C all the way down to –70 °C, making it suitable for exposure to the outdoor elements all year round, anywhere in the world. As well as being mold-resistant, it is also non-toxic and 100% recyclable.
Historically, slings are found combined with powder-coated aluminum frames. However, due to its inherent good looks, exceptional comfort and practicality, PNZ also has designed products that combine sling with both teak and stainless steel frames. One of the main benefits of sling is comfort. When stretched taught between two side frames, sling provides a yielding seating surface that moulds to your individual body shape. Our Ferrari Batyline or Twitchell woven vinyl is resistant to fading, mildew and wear & tear under the most severe weather conditions.
For quick production, PNZ have kept standard outdoor slings with different colours and patterns in stock. We also accept Custom Use Material
Stainless steel is the generic name for a number of different steels used primarily for their resistance to corrosion. The one key element they all share is a certain minimum percentage of chromium of 10.5%. Although other elements, particularly nickel and molybdenum, are added to improve corrosion resistance, chromium is always the deciding factor. However, despite its various additions stainless steel still behaves as steel, and even the highly alloyed stainless steel grades such as 316 still contain a minimum of 62% iron.
PNZ manufactures using 304 grade stainless steel with an electro-polished (EP) finish brushed finish. Electro-polishing is widely used in the electronics, food and medical industries and on components for cruise ships and yachts, where a corrosion resistant, smooth and easy to maintain surface is of vital importance. Electro-polishing is an electrochemical process whereby the combination of an electrical current and a strong acid erodes the surface of the stainless steel substrate atom by atom. This process removes much of the iron from the surface of the steel, but leaves the chrome intact, resulting in more shiny, but much improved corrosion resistant surface.
