Agora Senda®

Garden furniture covered with Agora Senda® outdoor fabric looks as if it is indoor furniture. This high-quality fabric has a luxurious appearance and is low-maintenance. A special coating makes this fabric dirt- and water-repellent. As a result, water or other liquid substances remain on the surface and do not penetrate into the fabric. It is also UV resistant so the cushions will not fade. Cushions with an Agora Senda® outdoor fabric can be left outside for the entire garden furniture season with peace of mind.

In the course of the season, stains may occur due to various weather conditions. The advice is to remove these stains immediately. This can be done easily with warm water and soap. Stubborn stains can be removed with Exotan Care® Fabric cleaner (ECP530). After cleaning we advise you to protect the set with the Exotan Care® Fabric protector (ECP730), to re-impregnate the lounge set. This provides an extra UV filter and slows down the adhesion of dirt. 

For an optimal result, you can use the Exotan Care® scrub pad (ECP450-P) for cleaning and the Exotan Care® application cloth (ECP456) for applying a protective layer. We recommend applying the Exotan Care® Fabric protector (ECP730) very thinly and rubbing it out well.

Nanotex®

Nanotex® is a strong, UV-resistant and flexible outer fabric based on nanotechnology. This fabric also looks like an inner fabric, but can withstand various weather influences. This makes the fabric low maintenance. However, in the course of the season, different weather conditions can cause stains. We recommend that you remove these stains immediately. This can be done easily with warm water and soap. Stubborn stains can be removed with Exotan Care® Textilene & Wicker cleaner (ECP500). We recommend protecting the elements with Exotan Care® Textilene & Wicker protector (ECP700) after cleaning. This provides an extra UV filter and slows down the adhesion of dirt.

For an optimal result, use the Exotan Care® scrub pad (ECP450-P) for cleaning and the Exotan Care® application cloth (ECP456) for protection.

Nanotex® can be left outside throughout the entire garden furniture season. In order to extend the life of the cushions, it is advisable to store them or place them at an angle during heavy rainfall.

 

Olefin

Olefin is a supple outer fabric made from stretched polyester thread. Cushions covered with olefin, generally feel somewhat finer and softer. The olefin cushion covers can be washed in the washing machine at 30˚C degrees. We recommend spraying them with Exotan Care® Fabric protector (EPC730) after washing. This gives an extra UV filter protection, which prevents discolouration and slows down the adhesion of dirt. Stubborn stains can be removed with the Exotan Care® Fabric cleaner (ECP530).
