Protecting Your Health with Antimicrobial Features

One of the great things about Homecrest Outdoor Living furniture is that it’s designed to last for years and perform in any environment. Our products owe this in part to being antimicrobial and easily cleanable. While these are great features in any scenario, it makes our stylish furniture an excellent option for handling the COVID-19 pandemic responsibly.

Homecrest’s antimicrobial design starts with our fabric. All of our fabric types are bleachable with the use of a safe bleach cleaning solution, but antimicrobial features go further than that for our most popular fabric types.

For one, our double-layer sling seating—which is known for its high level of comfort—is constructed of antimicrobial-rated, Microban-infused material. And of course, these slings can also be safely bleached without harming their appearance or integrity. This means that, not only does our sling seating naturally prevent the lingering and transmission of dirt and germs, they can also easily be cleaned between uses for added protection.

Our Ultraleather fabrics are also antimicrobial rated (using EPA-registered measurement systems) and bleachable. One of the biggest appeals of this type of fabric is that it is non-porous, and therefore straightforward to clean with standard, alcohol-based disinfectants. These qualities have made Ultraleather a favorite of healthcare industries.

Beyond fabrics, we also have added protections for all of our cushioned seating. With our DreamCore™ and UltraCore™ cushions, we include a ticking fabric underlayment beneath the product’s exterior. This underlayment prevents transmission of any foreign materials or fluids into the cushion foam. This ensures that cleaning the outer layer of fabric is all the maintenance needed in order to keep our cushioned products hygienic.

Finally, we finish our aluminum frames with a special powder-coating paint. Besides creating an even layer of color, this process makes our frames completely non-porous. In contrast to other materials used in the outdoor furniture industry, such as wood or natural fibers, our powder-coated aluminum frames can be effectively wiped and bleached clean.

All of these different strategies combine to make Homecrest Outdoor Living products the smart choice for hygiene and safety, during COVID-19 and beyond.

The Comfortable DreamCore Cushion

Typical design dictates that when you focus on functionality, aesthetic appearance suffers. But, Homecrest Outdoor Living does not make typical designs. When it comes to outdoor furniture, we believe that functionality, comfort and beauty are all equally important. We bring all three to our products.

Nothing exemplifies this philosophy better than our DreamCore™ cushions. These cushions are made to look good, feel good and last through years of outdoor use. DreamCore cushions use a High Resilient foam to ensure longevity and appearance. Unlike conventional foam, our sumptuous DreamCore cushions have a high level of elasticity, which makes for a comfortable seating experience and consistent cushion shape.

BACK CUSHION
The back cushion is constructed with moisture-resistant ticking and is engineered to match the silhouette of the cushion, creating a tailored look. Individual channels hold the fill in place and create both comfort and support.

 

 

SEAT CUSHION
The seat cushion is constructed with High Resilient furniture-grade foam wrapped with a polyester fiber layer and moisture-resistant ticking that is glued, not sewn, to prevent moisture penetration.

 

 

SEAT DECK & GROMMET VENTING
The seat deck is constructed of 100% virgin vinyl strapping for enhanced comfort. Virgin vinyl straps do not contain clay fillers, which reduce strap memory. The underside of the seat cushion cover features grommet openings for breathability.

 

 

BACK ATTACHMENT
Homecrest Liberty and Havenhill seat and back cushions feature a Velcro back flap for security. Elements and Revive seat and back cushions feature a sewn seam to attach the cushions together, which eliminates the use of ties or tabs.

 

Many of our most elegant seating collections feature DreamCore cushions. Elements, Havenhill, Liberty and even our new Revive Collection make use of this cushion design.

#1 Double Layer Sling Technology

At Homecrest Outdoor Living, we want you to experience the most comfortable and functional designs that outdoor furniture can offer. We fulfill this goal with our innovative double layer slings.

Homecrest Outdoor Living’s double layer sling design is the ultimate in low-maintenance comfort. It features excellent shape retention and overall durability. We believe in our double layer slings so much that we offer them with a comprehensive warranty.

SLING CONSTRUCTION
The Homecrest double layer sling uses internal support rails to shape and stretch the sling. This allows for the sling to ergonomically conform to the body and eliminates a rigid surface. Homecrest's double layer sling creates an individual comfort experience.

 

SERGING
After the first sew line is in place, slings go through a five-thread serging process that doubles the strength of the seam.

 

 

WELTING
Sling construction is finished with a sewn-on welt. Welting is attached with a third sew line to combine the multiple layers of fabric. Welting color will default to the frame finish color unless an alternate welt color is selected.

 

 

SLING TESTING
Homecrest slings are static-load tested to ensure durability of seam strength by dropping a 125 lb weight on a sling chair for 50,000 cycles.

Homecrest Recognized as Minnesota Dual-Training Employer

Outdoor furniture manufacturer Homecrest Outdoor Living recently began participating in the Minnesota PIPELINE (Private Investment, Public Education, Labor and Industry Experience) Program in a continued effort to enhance the skills of our employees. Homecrest received a badge identifying the company as a Minnesota Dual-Training Employer as recognition for our involvement in the program.

The PIPELINE Program, developed by the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry, supplies employers with education and training resources to create dual-training programs for their workers. Employees receive a combination of in-class instruction and on-the-job training, giving them the skills they need to perform their jobs well.

Through this program, Homecrest was able to provide our welders with advanced training and American Welding Society (AWS) certification, courtesy of instructor Josh Heibel from M State’s Workforce Development Solutions. One hundred percent of our current welders are now certified by the AWS after spending 36 hours improving their metallurgical and welding techniques in the classroom and on the manufacturing floor.

“It’s extremely important for our business to have certified aluminum welders that are producing high-quality products on a daily basis,” said CEO of Homecrest Outdoor Living, Tim DeJong.

With a longstanding reputation of manufacturing products for superior durability and design, Homecrest’s participation in the PIPELINE Program will help to ensure that our American-made outdoor furniture continues to exceed expectations in the industry.
