Not at all. The material in use for the internal and external hardware is highly durable, and it won’t rust or perish over time. We galvanize all the springs and hardware before we assemble the cushion, so you can rest assured that it will last for years without any issues. Unlike other outdoor furniture manufacturers, we use a specially designed zipper that remains corrosion-free in harsh conditions. Our cushions remain intact even after years of use and won’t flake or fade away.
