Our outdoor mesh is perfect for beds that will be left outdoors. It is an open weave, just like what you’ll find on your patio furniture that will allow rain water to pass through it. Because this material is so breathable, it is also more vulnerable to destructive dogs and is not covered under our chew proof warranty. If you need something to use outside, with a dog that can be destructive, use our heavy duty vinyl. It is very durable and not absorbent so if it gets rained on, you’ll just have to wipe it off and it’s ready to be used again!
