MANUFACTURING Wicker furniture from artificial rattan
Artificial rattan furniture is a practical product of new technologies and materials with a long service life. Wicker sofas and techno rattan armchairs have long and for a long time fell in love with a wide range of consumers. The popularity of such home decoration does not fade away. It is always the result of manual labor, which is characterized by originality and high quality workmanship. And if there is demand, why not arrange an offer.
But not only aesthetics and handmade work distinguish wicker furniture from techno-rattan among other types. An important feature is its practicality and high reliability in terms of performance. Therefore, outdoor furniture made of artificial rattan is perfect for the street. In cafes and restaurants, it is used all year round. What can I say already about cottages and pavilions. But the stylish high-tech wicker furniture design fits perfectly into modern home and office interiors.
WHAT IS AN ARTIFICIAL RATTAN?
Different artificial rattan. Artificial rattan is a polymer thread obtained by extrusion. Under a certain temperature, plastic is melted and passed through a special hole form. Thanks to the forming hole, a synthetic thread is formed with a certain shape: a crescent, a rod, in the form of a wooden bark, etc. An artificial rattan can have a different color and texture. The plastic components included in its composition comply with the environmental standard ISO9001 – it is odorless and pleasant to the touch.
Advantages of artificial rattan furniture:
It does not require special maintenance handling or any special care. It is enough to wipe objects with a damp rag.
Wicker furniture made of artificial rattan is suitable for continuous operation not only indoors, but also on open terraces, in the garden, on summer areas of cafes, etc.
Eliminated the risk of sprouting vines (which sometimes happens with natural wood furniture).
Polymer thread can be dyed in a wide variety of shades, has a different texture and thickness of the fiber. Modern technology allows you to fully imitate the rattan stalk.
Furniture sets with light weight can withstand impressive loads. Without deforming.
Artificial rattan is an affordable material, durable and unpretentious in operation.
From the point of view of the manufacturer:
It is easier and faster to work with polymer thread. She bends well. Therefore, you can create furniture of the most unusual form.
Artificial rattan has a considerable length (some manufacturers produce up to 200m.). There is no need to think about how to connect separate “lashes” (as is the case with natural material).
Natural materials are indisputably out of competition. But they have some pretty significant drawbacks. The tree is susceptible to aggressive environmental influences. Therefore, wicker furniture can decorate only enclosed spaces. Wooden items need special care using special materials. In addition, conservationists are unlikely to be happy with the widespread cutting of vines.
High-quality synthetic material is devoid of these shortcomings. Plus it has additional benefits.
MAKING FURNITURE FROM AN ARTIFICIAL ROTANG
Artificial rattan furniture. To organize your own business of manufacturing artificial rattan furniture, you need to purchase a set of equipment on which it will be possible to make polymer threads. There is a ready-made material for weaving on sale. But it is not profitable to use it.
The line for the production of techno-rattan wickerwork includes:
additional tools: scissors, keys, etc.
raw materials and consumables: components, dyes and granules of plastic, pipes for the frame;
additional furniture fittings.
Having such a “factory”, you can work wonders. The machine easily changes settings and produces rods of different shapes and diameters (or strips), with different textures.
