Product FAQ Answers


1. How do I personalise my beanbag? 

You must choose 1 product at a time to add to the cart for items that are to be personalised. IE. choosing quantity of 2 or more of any product will cause the personalisation option in My Cart page to be removed for that product.


2. Do Alta Beanbags have a removable liner? 
Removable liners are not available with our bags as the polyurethane fabric is water proof. We recommend spot cleaning with mild detergent and a brush if necessary, the bags then can be rinsed with water. This eliminates the need for removing the beans and machine washing.


3. Do you do pet beanbags? 
We don't make pet specific beanbags but some our customers use our products satisfactorily for their pets - usually the Alta Jumbo or Regular style.


4. How durable is a beanbag? 
Our beanbags do not break easily. We carefully select durable materials and use industrial sewing machines to assemble them. The thread we use is extremely strong. However, under extreme circumstances i.e. kids jumping on it with shoes, the bags durability could be seriously reduced. We would expect our bag last at least 5 years under normal use.

5. How many beans in a bag?
There are on average 7000 beans per litres of fill. Our jumbo bean bag requires 300 litres, this equates to 2.1 million beans.


6. Are Alta Beanbags suitable for outdoor use?
Absolutely, they are water resistant, the fabric will not absorb water thanks to the PVC coating, however they only have a mid range colour fastness resistance so we don't prolonged exposition to the sun as your beanbag will fade over time. This is less of a problem on a light coloured beanbags (ie lime, aqua, fuschia) versus the darker ones such as black, navy or chocolate.


7. How do I fill my beanbag?
"I found a way to fill no fuss ... after buying five bags from Alta I had the usual tragic experience with escapee beans then I cut a 300mm piece of 75mm plastic plumbing pipe inserted it into a similar size cut in the plastic beanbag taped the bag to the pipe and upended the bag into the alta bag with the pipe in the zipper hole: not a single bean hit the deck: choice bru." - Dale from OZ
