When shopping for new discount living room furniture, the options are limitless and sometimes confusing. When you start reading fabric labels you’ll soon find them talking about the number of double rubs and how it affects you.
What does double rub mean?
The double–rub rating given to fabric tells its durability. This test simulates a person getting into and out of a chair and how well the fabric wears when another fabric is continuously rubbed against it. For general household use, a rating of 15,000 double rubs is good. Heavy duty fabrics have ratings of around 25,000 double rubs, and contract upholstery requires at least 30,000 -40,000. Fabric content and weave are also factors in durability. With so many different upholstery options available today, you are sure to find numerous options of high wearing fabrics with a comfortable feel and great look.
