PVC Furniture Grade Fittings
Are you looking to build a structure or piece of furniture using PVC pipe and fittings? Interested in creating home décor from PVC? Thinking of constructing some storage units with PVC? If so, you may want to consider using furniture grade PVC fittings.
At first glance, furniture grade PVC fittings and schedule 40 PVC fittings may look the same, but they are actually quite different. Although both are compatible with all standard PVC pipe (the sizing is the same), furniture grade PVC is not suitable for plumbing. However, furniture grade PVC is perfect for creating structures, like tables, chairs, or tents. It can also be used to create fun items such as sprinklers or decorations for your home (flower vases, wreaths, etc.).
More about Furniture Grade PVC Fittings...
There are thousands of projects you can create using PVC, so why would you use furniture grade over standard PVC? Well, unlike standard PVC, furniture grade PVC is free of markings, such as barcodes and sizing labels, making it more visually appealing. Adding to its visual appeal, furniture grade PVC is made with a high-gloss finish. For functionality, furniture grade PVC is treated to be UV resistant, while standard PVC will turn yellow and become weaker and more brittle if left in the sun for extended periods. This is an important consideration if you are building something that will be exposed to sunlight, like a table or chair for your patio.
There are also fittings unique to furniture grade PVC, such as four-way and five-way fittings. Although they would function poorly for plumbing, three-way, four-way, and five-way fittings are great for building items. Three-way fittings are also known as side outlet elbows, four-way fittings are also called side outlet tees, and five-way fittings can be labeled as side outlet crosses.
Building with furniture grade PVC is simple. You just slip the fittings onto the pipe, making sure your pipe and fittings are the same size. You can add adhesive for extra support if you would like. PVC is great because it is long lasting, strong, and relatively inexpensive. You can make just about anything you can think of and some things you probably wouldn’t even think of! Its versatility is endless.
