Sun loungers – perfect for those hot and sunny days where the sunshine is tempting you with the promise of a lovely tan and a dose of vitamin D. When it comes to choosing a sunlounger to own yourself, however, there are many different materials and styles to choose from. It’s not always clear which one to go for. In this article, we will explore the main materials that these loungers can be created from.
Plastic might get a bad wrap – we get flashbacks of that tacky white-turned-beige aesthetic remembered from family holidays to resorts or beaches. This is because they are extremely prone to breakages and weathering over time. Conversely, they are very easy to clean!

There is a way to get all of the benefits of a plastic lounger without having the disadvantage of the ugly and flimsy plastic designs we see in conventional loungers. Read on to find out how…
We love the look of wooden furniture – the aesthetic of cleanly chopped timber arranged into the neat shape of a lounger is a great look for almost any garden. The potential disadvantages come into play when it comes to maintenance. Maintaining wooden furniture is a real task – that’s especially true when it comes to the outdoor variety. Exposure to the elements severely ages and deteriorates wood – paint begins to flake off, it can start to rot and become damp.

It also requires constant covering from the rain, sanding down and treating the wood regularly.

Plastic Timber Lounger
This lounger was designed by CR Plastics over in Canada which has proper seasons – from freezing winters to baking hot summers. They came up with a design to survive all conditions, taking minimal maintenance and boasting impressive longevity. This means you won’t need to replace them any time soon! Mobek is the only official retailer of these chairs in the UK. Check out our chaise lounger.
Mobek’s loungers make use of patented ‘plastic timber’. This replicates the integrity, aesthetic and design of wooden furniture which has been coloured to a high standard – but it’s made from 100% recycled plastic milk cartons. Check out this video below.
The best of both worlds
What this means is that you get to have the ease of plastic furniture without the ‘tacky’ style, and the aesthetic of wooden furniture without the hassle of maintenance.
