Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of material does Fermob use?
For its furniture, Fermob chooses to use metal (steel or aluminum) for its incredible versatility. The metals we use are top-grade steel and aluminum.
Fermob furniture can be either exclusively metal or a combination of metal and OTF (outdoor technical fabric, a type of PVC-coated polyester), woven polymer (Sixties), or outdoor fabrics in conjunction with top-quality renowned suppliers such as Ferrari and Dickson.
Is Fermob furniture treated for the outdoors?
Fermob furniture benefits from special anti-corrosion treatment for outdoor use. Two treatments are offered: the first is the High Protection treatment, which can be further improved with the second treatment, the Very High Protection treatment, which provides optimum protection for steel furniture that is constantly exposed to very wet, humid or salty conditions.
The paint used is a 100% polyester, anti-UV powder paint, subject to standard tests for baking, hardness, resistance to scratches and corrosion. It is applied electrostatically to the furniture for optimal coverage, and then baked at a very high temperature.
Can Fermob be placed in salt water environments?
Fermob’s furniture is engineered for the elements. However, salt water can be very harsh and even stainless steel will begin to show rust over time. Rinsing your furniture regularly with fresh water will help avoid hardware rusting.
Fermob offers many aluminum products that are also recommended over steel in a salt water environment.
How can I recycle my products?
Fermob furniture is designed and manufactured using recycled and recyclable materials. To help us protect the environment, please remember to take your packaging and any old unwanted furniture to your local waste disposal center for recycling.
