Spun Ends

 

All frames feature double wall support with aluminum inserts in critical stress points like seat backs and legs. Single wall tubing in these structural parts can be extremely vulnerable in contract use.

Special helia-arc equipment is used to produce full circumference welds. Each structural tube member is cut to fit in a flush match with the main frame. This "fish mouth" cut makes for a tight joint and secure weld. More time and effort in welding gives the furniture extended life for contract performance.

 

Exposed aluminum tube ends on all Leisure Lite items are also spun closed wherever possible. This ensures frame integrity and reduces operator liability from personal injury. Nylon plugs and caps can fall out, leaving a sharp exposed tube end.

Lounge Backrests

 

Our exclusive single-wrap system utilizes rustproof grommets, making for a stronger frame attachment and easy vinyl strap reversal or replacement. This feature keeps the furniture in service and looking good, as all maintenance can be accomplished on-site.
All Leisure Lite sun cots are constructed with a specially designed offset on both sides of the adjustable back. This offset prevents a hand injury when the cot back is inadvertently dropped on the frame. This feature reduces the liability and incidence of personal injury.

All sun cot and chaise styles feature a solid aluminum adjustment plate, which supports the adjustable back, attached to the frame with commercial rivets. Nylon back plates are designed for residential use and will not stand up to rigorous contract use.

Contract Casual Sling
All Weather Wicker

 

  • All standard slings are fabricated from commercially formulated, heavy duty pvc (polyester vinyl coated) woven fabrics that have anti -microbial and ultraviolet inhibitors built in. These slings are meant to perform in sun, sand, wind and weather.
  • Slings are double stitched with heavy duty polyester thread in all stress areas to insure that it will maintain it's tailored good looks in contract service.
  • The woven sling material has more threads per inch than residential fabrics, is cool to the touch and cleans easily with soap and water.
  • Leisure Lite's exclusive sling attachment system features stainless steel commercial bolts and lock nuts which eliminates all mechanical fasteners. The standard fasteners featured in residential furniture collections are the primary cause of most seating failures.
  • Structural bolts in the Leisure Lite sling attachment system are attached through the leg and channel members, giving the frame double strength and a secure closure.
  • Slings are easily replaced onsite by removing the bolt attachment and end cap, then sliding an appropriate replacement into the tubular slot.

 

  • Leisure Lite All Weather Wicker furniture features an extruded virgin vinyl that is formulated exactly like the strap material in our Contract Casual Strap collections. Though it is similar in appearance to the wicker material used by retail manufactures, most residential styles are woven from plastic or vinyl wrapped wire, which is then covered by a sealer. The "weather resistance" it promises cannot stand up to the demands of the commercial environment.
  • All weather wicker vinyl does not peel, crack, sag or change colors. Like our other strap products, it has extra mildew inhibitors and ultraviolet stabilizers built in. It has specifically formulated to stand up sun, sand, wind and weather. Furniture frames can be easily cleaned with a mild solution of soap and water.
  • Structural frame components utilized in the All Weather Wicker collections feature heavy duty aluminum extruded tubing and full circumference welds for contract stability.
  • All Weather Wicker Furniture products are woven by hand with a series of interlocking overlaps that are individually tied to the structural frame. This double surface weaving minimizes damage from an abusive situation. Most damage to the woven surfaces can be fixed onsite. This weaving process cannot be replicated by machine fabrication.
