Proper usage and maintenance
Proper usage and maintenance is vital for getting the most out of the valuable resources we have. Our designs are made to last for generations, but just like everything else, they need a little care to get there.
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 Southeast Asia, 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.
