Berlin Gardens: Mayhew Ottoman with Sunbrella Fabric
At Berlin Gardens, all of our furniture is built using only the highest-grade poly lumber. Made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic, this durable material is the secret behind manufacturing low-maintenance furniture designed to last decades. We use two types of poly in our furniture — both produced by leaders in the industry.
Polyethylene plastic, commonly used in manufacturing detergent containers, is gathered to be recycled. Recycled plastic is ground, melted and cooled to produce purified plastic pellets, which are tested to maintain the highest quality control standards. Pellets are melted, extruded and shaped into precision-cut poly lumber.
Chrome-Plated Fasteners: Unlike other poly furniture manufacturers, Berlin Gardens only uses chrome-plated stainless steel fasteners. These fasteners resist corrosion better than standard stainless steel — keeping your furniture free from unsightly rust stains.
Aluminum Frames: We use strong, welded aluminum frames to provide long-lasting support under tabletops and thicker furniture components. While our furniture is designed to keep most aluminum supports out of sight, those that are visible are powder coated to maintain an attractive, durable finish.
PolyTuf™: Manufactured by Tangent, PolyTuf™ recycled plastic lumber has become a mainstay of the furniture industry. Its high strength-to-weight ratio and versatility make it an excellent choice for most poly furniture.
