Teak Furniture
This teak furniture is made of genuine, plantation-grown teak wood (Tectona Grandis). This noble wood species is naturally impregnated with “Chinon”, witch protects wood against rot. At the same time, the natural content of teak oil in the wood resists the absorption of water and helps keep surfaces clean. Teak wood does not need to be maintained to withstand weathering. Over time, the sun will bleach the original brownish color and a new silver-grey surface will appear. Many aficionados of teak wood prefer this silver-gray patina. Others prefer to keep the original color. To maintain the original color, we recommend marine teak oil. For regular cleaning, we recommend any wood cleaner. After a period of use or if the wood has dried out, it may be necessary to tighten with moderated torque the screws. Use a hexagonal wrench. We wish you many happy hours with your genuine teak furniture.

Teak Wood:
Teak (Tectona), is a genus of tropical hardwood trees in the family Verbenaceae, native to the south and southeast of Asia, and is commonly found as a component of monsoon forest vegetation. They are large trees, growing to 30-40 m tall, deciduous in the dry season. The name teak comes from the Tamil word Thekku and Telugu word Teaku. There are three species of Tectona: * Tectona grandis (Common Teak) is by far the most important, with a wide distribution in India and Indo-China. * Tectona hamiltoniana (Dahat Teak) is a local endemic species confined to Burma, where it is endangered. * Tectona philippinensis (Philippine Teak) is endemic to the Philippines, and is also endangered. The timber is used in the manufacture of outdoor furniture, boat decks, and other articles where weather resistance is desired. It is also used for indoor flooring and as a veneer for indoor furnishings. Teak is easily worked and has natural oils that make it suitable for use in exposed locations, where it is durable even when not treated with oil or varnish. Teak cut from old trees grown slowly in natural forests is more durable and harder; teak from young trees grown in plantations is more prone to splitting and water damage, however kiln drying allows for sustainable, plantation-grown teak to perform nearly on par with old-growth teak. Most of the Teak grown today is grown on Plantations that are governed by the local governments. The demand for Teak is growing at an estimated 10% per year. Teak is a heavily regulated (and rightfully so) commodity, and is sold through the auction process. Teak is not very easy to get. There are regulatory permits that must be purchased and other expenses that go along with regulation. For example, once purchased, it is usually the purchasing companies' responsibility to provide transportation if the wood is to be exported and certain countries have regulations on how many logs can be exported. Currently, Java, Indonesia is the largest exporter of Teak. There are several companies that are located in Java that will process and fashion the Teak into furniture, or planks for flooring or siding, and then export the finished item or semi finished item to countries around the world. Teak grows very rapidly but still takes approx. 50 years to mature. Many countries are reviewing the possible rotation after 30 or 40 years. This is mainly due to the large demand for Teak. The consensus with this rotation is that the wood will not be inferior at that rate. There are some countries that are trying tree rotation after only 25 years. The results are timber that is smaller in diameter, color, and grain. So, when add it all up, you get a much better understanding not only of what the hype about Teak Wood is all about, but the numerous qualities of Teak Wood and the supply and demand side of Teak Wood. Many people for generations have been enjoying the warm benefits of owning Teak Wood products. Outdoor Teak Wood furniture is a Standard for many families and in many gardens, terraces, patios, verandas, ships, and yachts around the world. If you are investing in outdoor furniture, you really owe it to yourself to step into the world of Teak.
