In addition, if they are too wide, they can create craters and end up accumulating water; On the other hand, if it is more taut or adapts perfectly, the water slides off, making the furniture stay dry.

Although there are versatile covers, we recommend that you find out about the covers designed for each piece of outdoor furniture.

In this way, outdoor furniture “breathes”.

Within the covers section, you will find three models in polyester: EasyCover, Aquashield, and Aerocover. In the specific case of Aquashield, we have 420D Oxford polyester and a polyurethane waterproof coating to gain extra waterproofness.

3. Accessories for garden covers

A good cover for the exterior, garden, or terrace will be designed with all the details for better adaptability to the furniture.

Another example is the Aerocover covers, which have so-called Aerocover membranes, expressly designed to prevent the formation of mold and the proliferation of bacteria. In addition, the upper part of the case is covered with a type of waterproof adhesive tape that helps prevent water from penetrating.
