Replacement Slings For Your Patio Furniture

Even high quality patio furniture will show signs of wear over time, and replacing its slings is a cost-effective way to refresh and extend its life.

Slings typically become worn before the rest of a furniture piece wears out, however we do not replace slings on furniture with fixed or welded sling rails.

Chair slings

Chair slings are one of the parts of patio furniture sets most susceptible to wear-and-tear from sunlight and wind exposure, so when they start wearing out it is time for new material sling replacements – which will extend its life while giving it a fresh new look. Before purchasing replacement slings for your chairs it is vitally important to measure both width of rail slings as well as length for ease of ordering new replacement fabrics.

There are numerous fabrics available for replacement slings, each offering their own specific advantages and drawbacks. Some fabrics have heavier weight, while others may be more durable; each should also stretch to fit perfectly around the chair without creating pressure points that cause it to sag over time.

Before replacing the slings on a patio chair, it is a good idea to take several measurements first. In particular, measure the width and depth of both rails at the top and bottom of the chair, along with length from top to bottom sling rail. With these measurements in hand, purchasing the perfect size sling should become easy!

Before installing new slings on four chairs, it will be necessary to first remove the old slings from them and install new ones. This may take several hours depending on their age and frame; for frayed or very old slings this process could be much longer and harder.

Reinstalling spreader bars is often the hardest part of this task, as they serve to keep sling fabric taut. Manufacturers and repair centers typically utilize special tools for this job; however, you can easily make a make-shift tool at home to install spreader bars – simply cut two 2x4s end-to-end to be just larger than inside width of sling rails with cheap hinges on each end to form an “I” shape that you can push in with this “makeshift” tool to spread frame and install spreader bars onto this “makeshift”.

Chaise slings

A chaise lounge is an extremely comfortable piece of patio furniture, ideal for relaxing, reading or napping. Unfortunately, they can become damaged over time from exposure to the elements – especially sunlight – requiring replacement slings as soon as they become damaged to restore comfort and beauty to your patio furniture.

An ideal replacement sling chaise should be constructed of high-grade outdoor fabric that is colorfast, durable and breathable, in addition to resisting mildew. Plastic retainer rods should be purchased alongside any replacement sling as this will ensure it fits securely onto your chair; two sizes of plastic retainer rods should be chosen accordingly for best results.

Sling chairs may be difficult to remove from their rails and often require special tools – which you can find at patio furniture repair centers – in order to be unbolted from their mounts. But the process can be made much simpler by following some straightforward steps. First, ensure that any baggy or sagging old slings have not become loose and also check that plastic splines are secure without cracks or breaks, this will make removing old slings much simpler!

Once the splines have been taken apart, you can install new slings. To do this, cut two strips of fabric down either side, remove each side of the sling rail from its mounts, as well as any end caps, trim off excess cording from previous spline cording, and then reinsert into each end cap of your new sling rails. Finally, trim any extra cording to reinsert into both ends of the new rail.

Once complete, install your new sling on your furniture frame. If it’s too loose for you, use an adjustable wrench to tighten it until it fits perfectly – for best results, choose an unbranded chair such as Tropitone or Brown Jordan and opt for 1/4″ (0.250″) wide spline material.

Absolute Patio Furniture’s slings should never be installed onto furniture frames with fixed or welded sling rails and spreader bars as these require different installation processes than offered by us and may not work correctly with their wide variety of slings, leading to possible ripped slings or damages to furniture.

Ottoman slings

Ottomans are an essential element to any outdoor living space, serving as footrests, extra seats and side tables.

Patio furniture slings can quickly wear down due to wear-and-tear, sun exposure and moisture exposure. When they become frayed or faded from use or sun exposure it’s a good idea to replace them for an updated look and feel in your backyard. Investing in new ones when they become ripped, frayed, mildewed or faded is sure to give it new life and give your backyard an appealing new aesthetic!

Replacement slings come in an assortment of styles and fabrics to meet any decor in your backyard, as well as being custom cut to fit. Be sure to measure twice before cutting – the old saying “Measure Twice, Cut Once” applies here!

Patio replacement slings typically consist of one-piece chair slings and two-piece chaise slings; however, replacement slings may also be purchased for other pieces of patio furniture, including loveseats and single ottomans. Each type can come in an array of colors and patterns designed to blend seamlessly with existing furnishings.

To obtain accurate measurements for your new slings, it is important to measure existing ones from where they meet on the rail all the way up to their end on the pole and note the number of loops at each end. You should then choose fabric matching the current ones and measure width of loops for comparison purposes.

Remember to tighten the slings to ensure they do not appear loose or baggy, which requires stretching them tight enough. Manufacturers and repair centers usually utilize a tool called a “sling spreader bar”, but you can create your own spreader using vise grip pliers wrapped with duct tape forming a spreader bar. Be careful when pulling too hard as doing so could rip apart new slings!

Love seat slings

Sling loveseats are designed for comfort and style, making them the ideal addition to any patio furniture set. Constructed of durable polyester-coated vinyl fabric woven around powder coated aluminum frames, you can find various colors and fabrics to fit your personal aesthetic. Cleaning them requires just sprays from a garden hose nozzle; or alternatively mild soap and water can help preserve its color and beauty for an easy care solution.

Sling furniture is a timeless outdoor seating choice with sleek contemporary lines, versatile functionality and easy care requirements. Perfect for coastal regions prone to moisture and humidity. Sling chairs offer superior support when sitting down on them too – offering superior cushioning without adding weight!

Sling patio sofas require special care when replacing their slings, as their fabric can easily tear if pulled too forcefully during installation. If replacing them yourself, follow all steps carefully so they fit correctly and replace with care!

First, remove your old slings from the frame. Once done, take measurements for new replacement slings – these custom-made items must fit precisely to your furniture frame, which means taking measurements of sling rails, seat back width, bottom width, and seat top length prior to placing an order.

Note that you cannot safely install replacement slings onto furniture frames with fixed or welded spreader bars; such frames require specialty equipment not sold at hardware stores to properly secure replacement slings and it would be dangerous to attempt repairs yourself as this may damage the furniture frame itself.
