Sling chairs are stylish and comfortable, but they have a tendency to get worn down over time. Don’t throw away your old sling chair! You can easily repair or replace the fabric on your sling chairs with the help of these specialty sling fabrics. Sailrite® has a large variety of top-rated sling fabric material for chairs that have become worn, aged or saggy. These fabrics are uniquely designed to work as patio furniture replacement slings and come in an assortment of intricate weaves, textures and colors. It doesn’t matter if you’re tired of your sling chair fabric or if you need to replace fabric that is torn or worn, Sailrite can help with the job.
We carry two highly recommended brands of fabric for outdoor sling chairs: Phifertex® and Sunbrella® Sling. These are both top-notch replacement fabrics for sling chairs, but each one has its own unique advantages. Both are extremely UV resistant, durable and breathable. Phifertex makes 100% PVC-coated polyester fabric for your patio furniture replacement slings, while Sunbrella offers PVC-coated acrylic options. Phifertex Plus (16 oz/sq yd) and Phifertex Designer Sling (13.6-24.6 oz/sq yd) fabrics are quite dimensionally stable and leave little bias stretch, making them ideal choices if you’re worried about long-term stretching or sagging. Plus Phifertex mesh fabrics come with a three-year limited manufacturer’s warranty.
Sunbrella Sling (13-21 oz/sq yd) fabric, on the other hand, is made from acrylic fibers that aren’t completely bonded together. Therefore, this option is less dimensionally stable and may sag over time. However, Sunbrella Sling is preferred if you’re looking for a softer, more fabric-like look and feel. Additionally, all Sunbrella Sling fabrics are backed by a five-year manufacturer’s warranty for added peace of mind.
