From this... to this in just one wipe

Weather Shield set to wipe the floor at Solex A. Mir & Co Ltd are proud to announce their latest innovations for the garden furniture market, including the amazing Weather Shield cushion fabrics. A. Mir & Co Ltd have developed a unique special 100% genuine waterproof fabric using soft touch luxury spun polyester fabric for cushions on their Royalcraft outdoor furniture. This will be sold under the ‘Weather Shield’ cushion fabrics branding and be available for specification on Royalcraft and the company’s retail partners’ own brands. In addition to ‘Weather Shield’ cushion fabrics being 100% waterproof and meeting UK Fire regulation compliance, the fabric offers additional performance advantages. The main additional feature comes from a Stain Resistant Treatment that handles general household contaminates from Ketchup to Red Wine. The fabric has colour fastness to UV90 level protection to avoid the fading of fabric in direct sun light. All treatments applied to the fabric for cushions are REACH compliant “We have discussed our new fabric development with FIRA UK (Furniture

Industry Regulation Authority) and we are encouraged to learn that currently there appears to be nothing on the market that has performance similar to that offered from our new ‘Weather Shield’ Premium grade Fabric,” said Abid Mir. “We look forward to the launch of this innovative fabric at the Solex 2018 show alongside several new ranges developed for Spring/Summer 2019 season. “These new rattan ranges are available together with additions to popular collections and all can be offered with “Weather Shield” fabric cushions. New Cast Aluminium collections also feature this cushion innovation. “So with all the above in place, A. Mir are ready to supply our furniture to you with ‘Weather Shield’ fabric cushions for the 2019 season.” A. Mir are on stand 520 at Solex. Havana
