The Island Cove collection by Panama Jack was developed from the Island Breeze Sling group. The addition of an exclusive woven synthetic wicker called Viro was chosen by Panama Jack to be used for the Island Cove eliminating the need for cushions. It incorporates a tubular extruded aluminum frame in a unique baked on powder-coated Espresso finish that will not rust. The armchairs are stackable for easy storage. Extruded aluminum outdoor furniture will not rust. It is lightweight as it is hollow in form. Beginning and end of season cleaning is recommended and should generally be adequate to maintain the condition of your furniture. Cleaning the furniture using a soft brush and a mild detergent will be sufficient. It is perfectly acceptable to use a silicone spray or auto wax to further protect the surface of finished aluminum but it is not necessary. It is most important to wash your furniture well before storing it for the winter to prevent the buildup of corrosive pollutants to act on the surface over the winter months. Covering your furniture if left outside is recommended but not necessary. Any covers used should be of a breathable material.
