  • Product FAQs

  • Where are your chairs made?

    China. We own the molds and tooling used to make our outdoor furniture. Everything we sell is made to our own specifications. Our furniture has a UV powdercoat finish and stainless steel fasteners and is made heavier than they were years ago.

  • Why does it appear that there is rust on the frames from time to time?
    This is just a discoloration caused by condensation. The inside tubing has not been powder coated. This and many other scuff marks can be easily removed with chrome polish and a soft cloth.
  • What is the weight limit of the chairs and gliders?

    Weight limit is 275 lbs and 500 lbs. The Heavy Duty chair is rated at 325 lbs.

  • What is your warranty?

    We guarantee our products for one year, under normal circumstances. If you place your metal furniture on gravel, brick or concrete and it is scuffed from movement, then the warranty will be void. Our chairs now have feet on them and this shouldn't happen to them but could happen to the gliders or rocking chairs.

  • Will you replace furniture that is received damaged?

    Yes, we will replace the part or piece of furniture that is damaged. There is seldom the need for a complete replacement. We do ask that if it appears that it was damaged in shipping that you take pictures of the box and the damages so we can file a claim with UPS.

  • Do you sell replacement parts?

    Yes, we have replacement parts on hand. Most of our parts will fit the vintage furniture.

  • Do you have a re-stocking charge?

    We charge a 20% re-stocking charge only if you have received your furniture and have decided that you just didn’t like it, want it or the color was not right. You pay the return shipping and re-stocking fee and we’ll refund your money.

  • Do you have care and assembly instructions?
    Yes, we have care and assembly instructions on-line.
  • Do you have color chips?
    No. The colors shown on-line are fairly accurate.
  • Can I find these chairs at Wal-Mart, Target, Lowes or Home Depot?
    No, not these chairs. You may see some similar to them but, we do not sell to any of the “Big Box” stores.
  • Could we see these chairs in retail stores?

    Yes, they are sold to many furniture stores, garden centers, hardware and patio stores.

  • Is there somewhere we can get a list of what stores they are sold to?

    You can find a store located close to you by using the "find a store" option on this website.

  • How does your furniture ship?

    UPS, Freight Carrier, USPS. Small orders ship UPS. Large orders could ship Freight carrier. Replacement parts could ship USPS.  We do not ship Patio or Bar Table via UPS due to their size.  These will have to go on a pallet.  All furniture is shipped KD (knocked down) in a box.

  • What is dimensional weight?

    For example, you may have an item that weighs 15 lb. Due to its size and the packaging size; it is billable at 30 lb. This is all determined by weight, length, height and width of the package.

  • How do I calculate shipping on my order without going through checkout?

    Simply add the item(s) to your shopping cart. Click on “View Cart.” Then click on “Estimate Ship costs.” All you will need to enter is your State and Zip Code. This will give you the different shipping options without having to put in your whole address or payment information. You will only be asked for that once you go to “Checkout.”

  • Do you ship to military addresses?

    We certainly will try to. Orders going to APO and FPO addresses will need to be called in or emailed to us. Some items are too large to ship Mail.

  • Do you sell your products wholesale?

    You can go to Torrans Manufacturing Company website to request wholesale information.  You must have a brick and mortar retail store or request to become a BTB customer if you are an interior designer or own a restaurant.

  • Are you the same company as Torrans Manufacturing Company, LLC?

    We are owned by Torrans Manufacturing Company, LLC.

  • Do you have a catalog available?

    No, all we have is what you see on this website.

  • Care, Assembly & Warranty

  • How to care for your furniture

    Care and maintenance of your new metal lawn furniture is quite minimal. The finish is Exterior Grade, Ultra Violet resistant Powder Coat and it will keep its gloss and smooth appearance for many years of enjoyment. It is resistant to all non-abrasive household cleansers and any common kitchen product can be used. However, Powder Coat is not scratch proof. It does compare in hardness to the finish of modern automobile paints. 

    Generally a good bath with a soapy sponge removes all common yard stains. We have found a small application of liquid auto wax such as NU-FINISH lessens efforts required to remove repeat stains such as bird droppings and tree sap and increases the gloss of the Powder Coat. A small drop or two of lubricate from time to time will remove squeaks in the nylon bushings of the Swing Arms on the gliders. 

    Occasionally, when opening your metal lawn furniture, you may encounter some slight discoloration. This is caused by moisture inside the tubing and is only a stain. It compares to the ring you get in your sink when leaving a metal object for too long. This and many other scuff marks can be easily removed with Chrome Polish and a soft cloth. This procedure can be repeated as many times as necessary though out the life of your furniture.
