Krahn Furniture – Canada’s Weatherproof Outdoor Patio Furniture

The Adirondack chair is a Canadian favourite. You will see these chairs all over Canada from the sandy shores of PEI to the mountains of British Columbia. Now, you can find them at Fora Outdoor Living.

What is a Krahn?

Krahn is a Canadian manufacturer of premium quality poly furniture. Located right here in Southern Ontario, Krahn has been designing and building patio furniture since 1986.

What’s it Made From?

Each Krahn piece is made from 95% recycled plastics. These plastics include items like milk jugs, detergent bottles and water bottles. Every year, thousands of tons of milk bottles and similar plastics are removed from the pollution stream, and diverted and recycled.

By using high-density polyethylene, Krahn can accommodate a wide variety of colours as well.

Unlike most wood and wood composite products that quickly fade when exposed to the weather, our poly has no wood fibers, retains its vibrant look for years, even decades, and may fade only slightly over its entire service life.

These Canadian-made pieces use materials that clean easily with soap and water. They are also weather-resistant, and feature hidden steel screws that are corrosion resistant.

The best part – each piece comes with a 10-year warranty.

How to Care for Furniture

Although our products are very weather-resistant and virtually maintenance-free, there are some easy and tried solutions for cleaning and caring for your chairs to keep them looking like new.

Poly is smooth to the touch, making it easy and basically self-cleaning. It does not absorb moisture; therefore, it will not stain. It is safe to leave out all seasons: spring, summer, autumn, and winter. It’s also fairly heavy, so it’s safe in the wind and storms. Snow and ice will not affect it, and if anything, will naturally clean it, lifting off dirt and grime.

The sun is your worst enemy, and that’s true about anything, not just our chairs. Everything will fade eventually. Our poly uses high-colour fast UV-protection systems to keep your chairs’ colour for years, even decades, and has come a long way since first-gen technologies.

  • UV-covers and waxes can help preserve the shine and colour life of your chair. Keep an eye on our products list to see available covers, or find them everywhere online.
  • Soap and water will do the trick most of the time, wiping away stains and messes easily. Try this first.
  • Pressure washers can help remove dirt and grime that may have built up over the years. Don’t get too close; it doesn’t take much pressure to get your chair looking like new.
  • Strong cleaners and solvents, such as bleach/water mixture or chlorine, are safe and can also help remove supposed stains. Check your local hardware store for furniture cleaners. Currently, we do not offer a line of cleaning products.
