- Material and care
Proper usage and maintenance
Chrome-plated steel has been given a protective layer of chromium which not only provides corrosion resistance but also increases the hardness of the surface. That makes it a good choice for outdoor use.
Use soapy water when necessary and wipe with a dry cloth.
Eventually the chrome will wear out and become scratched. For extra care wipe off with acid free oil. Note: To prevent corrosion, wipe off the petanque-balls after each game.
During winter it is advisable to store the product indoors.
Teak is commonly found in Southeast Asia and Central and South America. Our FSC-certified Teak comes from Central America and Brazil, while our non-certified Teak comes from plantations in Indonesia and Trinidad; managed to sustain a renewable and reliable supply of wood.
Teak is a heavy, hard and sturdy type of wood. The high content of natural oils makes it highly resistant and it is therefore a good choice for household articles and furniture.
For regular cleaning use a suitable cleaning agent for wood.
As the wood is untreated the surface will change colour over time and eventually turn into a beautiful silvery grey. To maintain untreated wood, it is a good idea to use sandpaper (grit 120-150) once or twice a year.
