Hospitality Outdoor Furniture that will last
In the hospitality industry, fixtures are used frequently. Outdoor furniture is an obvious example of necessary equipment. However, you need to feel confident in providing a repeatable, comfortable experience for customers day in and day out. In this article, you will learn of factors that need to be considered when evaluating a purchase of outdoor furniture in the hospitality sector.
What factors can affect the condition of outdoor furniture?
The outdoor environment can be unforgiving. But when it’s nice outside you need to count on your investment in furniture to deliver on promises and provide a safe, comfortable user experience to help enhance your brand’s customer service reputation.
Whether you are in the restaurant, hotel, parks and recreation, tourism or another segment of the hospitality industry, it’s important to provide a premium experience. There are several factors constantly working against this goal. Let’s talk about how they should be evaluated in determining product suitability for your unique considerations.
How weather can factor in your purchasing decision for outdoor furniture in the hospitality industry
Your regional weather is going to have extremes, regardless of where you are. Whether it’s hot and sunny all the time or cold and wet; or some combination of both.
That’s why Premier Polysteel is known as a solid pick regardless of the environment – the way our furniture is built helps to mitigate extreme heat by keeping the underlying steel structure cool. No hot metal is exposed. The furniture and accessories made by Premier Polysteel are completely coated in polyvinyl. The smooth surface doesn’t retain heat.
In the cold or wet environments, you won’t be touching frigid steel or wet surfaces. The coating insulates from extreme cold. The design incorporates openings in the tabletops and seats that allow quick drainage while the plastisol exterior sheds water easily.
You don’t have to worry about high wind, because the well-balanced, weight-centered designs of our products keep them grounded. We have testimonials that show our products withstanding hurricanes, heavy salt water exposure and a tropical storm.
When compared to other options, like wood, uncoated steel, aluminum or plastic outdoor furniture regarding outdoor conditions, it’s easy to see the value of the products we create here in the USA.
Usage of the Outdoor furniture you are choosing – what should you be evaluating?
Hospitality furniture installations are notoriously high-traffic areas that need to rely on solid fundamental engineering and premium materials. They need to be easy to clean and disinfect to ensure public safety. They may even need to be installed in a way that discourages and prevents theft, displacement and vandalism.
Premier Polysteel builts durable, easy to maintain and easy to clean products that can be disinfected with readily available, inexpensive cleaning methods. Our furniture accepts anti-theft surface mourning clamps and the materials we build with are perfect for spaces at risk of environmental factors. Our products compare favorably to many other options on the market in these settings.
Attractiveness and aesthetic appeal for your outdoor furniture in a high traffic area
You need outdoor furniture that looks good day in and day out. You need furniture that doesn’t conflict with branding or space; and furniture that fits in with the stylistic endeavors of the organization.
Premier Polysteel builds outdoor furniture in a variety of styles with shapes that can create a cohesive space, and in colors (twelve) that can complement your brand identity. All products are made with materials that are UV stable because of the unique properties of the Plastisol.
Comfort and creating an inviting environment for your guests
Liability, guest comfort and practical design are all important factors as well, when designing an outdoor space in the hospitality sector.
Minimizing liability is crucial because most hospitality spaces see larger than average traffic. Our tables are splinter-free, have no sharp edges and are built with easy in and out access and large rounded corners to ensure comfort for a wider variety of users. Furthermore, the balanced, heavy-duty build of the tables keeps them from tipping and can handle more weight than most industry offerings – see more about our tables’ balance and weight capacity to determine if it fits your needs.
Maintenance and ongoing considerations
Long term maintenance is a concern for any hospitality area and the furniture that exists within it. That maintenance need is increased when it’s an outdoor area. Ultraviolet protection, ease of cleaning, a rock-solid build quality and the warranty are all important factors.
With our outdoor furniture products, your hospitality business can realize lower maintenance costs and easier maintenance routines thanks to the durability of top quality welded steel architecture and a coating of more than ⅛” thick plastisol around this inner frame. The coating ensures easy cleaning with a mild bleach solution which can also serve to keep the public safer with disinfection. For heavy duty cleaning, a pressure washer or hot water cleaning can be performed as well. We believe that no other product on the market is more easily maintained for high traffic areas.
The coating is UV stable and mildew resistant and comfortable to sit on for many years. You can see testimonials from our customers that speak to the practicality and ongoing benefits of investing in Premier Polysteel for commercial outdoor furniture.

Main value propositions of Premier Polysteel products
The following attributes and benefits of our products help us to feel confident in our product for important hospitality needs.
Space considerations of our outdoor furniture
ADA considerations are a must. Having a layout and furniture which can make it easier for disabled users to access and enjoy the space will also help to reduce congestion and increase quality of life for high traffic areas, generally. The layout of a space should be harmonized with a proper choice of easy to enter and exit furniture.

Materials chosen by Premier Polysteel
Choosing furniture that is engineered and purpose built from the ground up to be stable, balanced and sturdy is an important factor. You want to be sure that you are limiting potential injuries and have a comfortable area that will not be negatively affected by materials that aren’t up to the task outdoors.
An industry leading 20-year limited warranty like Premier Polysteel offers, not only contributes to peace of mind but adds value to your investment.
We prioritize Comfort on our designs
A sturdy, high-weight-limit design means your table and benches and other accessory pieces won’t sag or deform after heavy use, year round. Rounded corners and a full “envelope” of plastisol provides for smooth edges and makes the seating surface and tabletops comfortable.
Design and engineering
Water drainage is important too, as your space can be back in usable condition quickly after weather events such as wet or snowy conditions. In certain hospitality settings this can be a huge benefit – like winter resorts, parks, etc.
The smooth surface of the polyvinyl offers a comfortable feel for all users as well.
Making the right choice seems easy when you know what factors can affect hospitality industry outdoor furniture
The outdoor environment can be hard on outdoor furniture. We like to let our customers individually evaluate other options on the market, like aluminum, plastic, zinc or powder-coated steel or wood products that have been part of the outdoor furniture industry for decades, instead of making specific comparative claims, generally.
But we also feel very comfortable putting our products’ performance up against all competitor designs and materials – we feel that Premier Polysteel products have a unique value proposition and offer a long-term solution that can be game-changing in the hospitality space. We invite you to call us and speak with a representative if you have questions or need help planning a space.
