Understanding Fabric Durability: The Double Rub Count Explained
Posted by COUCH HAUS
At CouchHaus, we know that the quality of the fabric used in your furniture can make all the difference in terms of comfort, durability, and overall aesthetic. One important factor to consider when evaluating fabric quality is the double rub count.
But what exactly is a double rub count, and why is it important?
A double rub is a unit of measurement used to test the durability of a fabric. It is a measure of the abrasion resistance of the fabric, and it's determined by rubbing a piece of fabric back and forth across a testing machine until it shows signs of wear or damage. The number of double rubs a fabric can withstand before showing wear is its double rub count.
A higher double rub count means that the fabric is more durable and resistant to abrasion, making it a better choice for high-traffic areas or for furniture that will be used frequently. For example, a double rub count of 15,000 or more is considered heavy duty and is suitable for furniture that will be used every day, while a count of 5,000-9,000 is considered medium duty and is suitable for furniture that will be used less frequently.
When shopping for furniture, it's important to consider the double rub count of the fabric to ensure that it will be able to withstand the level of use it will receive. This is especially important for items like sofas, chairs, and ottomans, which are used regularly and are prone to wear and tear.
At CouchHaus, we only use high-quality fabrics with double rub counts of 15,000 or higher to ensure that our furniture is durable, comfortable, and long-lasting. We know that the fabric is an important part of the overall experience of our furniture, and we take great care to choose fabrics that are both beautiful and durable.
So when you're shopping for furniture, be sure to consider the double rub count of the fabric to ensure that you're getting a piece that will stand the test of time and provide you with years of comfort and enjoyment. At CouchHaus, we're dedicated to providing our customers with furniture that is not only stylish, but also built to last.
