  • Even special fluid-resistant fabrics can be penetrated if urine is allowed to sit for an extended period of time. Furniture built for residents and clients with incontinence can be enhanced with:
  • a slight slope at the back of the seat to encourage urine to flow through to the floor.
  • Additionally, upholstered furniture for incontinence should be constructed without welting – the decorative pipe edge common on traditional upholstered goods.
  • Lastly, vinyl wrapping over the foam core of the cushion ensures that urine or other fluids will not penetrate through to the foam which is will never come clean from urine.
  • In a heavy incontinence environment the furniture frame can additionally be improved to withstand urine. 


Urine on exposed wood can not only cause long-term foul odors, but can also damage the wood and compromise the integrity of the piece. 

Furniture designed for incontinence should have a protective catalyzed lacquer to create a water-proof seal

Add to that a vinyl wrapping secured with water-proof staples and you have the perfect combination to keep furniture frames untouched by fluids.
