Say NO to Vinyl
Other furniture covers are made from vinyl. A thermoplastic polymer, vinyl or poly-vinyl chloride (PVC) is a human health and environmental threat that is toxic in all stages of its lifecycle.
PVC production involves large amounts of dangerous chlorine gas, as well as vinyl chloride, a dangerous carcinogen. Because we care about our customers and the environment, we have chosen to use products without these harmful chemicals.
PVC covers are also connected to dioxins, environmental pollutants that accumulate in the body over time and are of concern because of their highly toxic potential.
At EmpirePatio we do not use any vinyl in our materials and all of our products are PVC free and Dioxin free. Instead, we offer two types of environmentally responsible materials for our covers:
Classic Collection – Three Layer Spun-bond Polypropylene
Our three-layer spun-bond material is breathable and contains a high-quality UV stabilizer to protect your cover from breaking down under extreme sunlight. The two outside layers are UV treated, with a waterproof interior layer. The three-layer protection coupled with the spun-bond material ensures that it is both waterproof and breathable. This durable material is also non-abrasive, so you won't have to worry about your furniture getting tarnished.
Select Collection – Machine-woven Polyester Material
Our 300 denier polyester material is vinyl, PVC and dioxin-free for responsible covering. This material also provides superior UV protection and prevents fading and discoloration from the sun's Made from machine-woven polyester that will keep your patio furniture dry, your family safe and the Earth looking green. With unique positive airflow vents on the sides, any trapped moisture will evaporate right out so you won't have to worry about harmful mold and mildew growing underneath the cover.
