There are three grades to differentiate the teak quality These grades will explain the color, texture knot visibility, durability, moisture content, teak trees part, and etc. The grade A teak has to represent the finest quality compare to the other. The grade B has not visibility which makes it has a lower value. The last, grade C has high-level moisture from younger trees. Please pay more attention if there any cheap teak furniture offers.

These days, some illegal log of teak is used to build furniture. Of course, it will lead to natural damage and make imbalance on earth. Here, we proudly said that All teak wood we use in our products comes from TFT supported teak plantations only.

BATYLINE®

Batyline® is made by a French company, Ferrari, and is widely used in premium outdoor furniture. Batyline® is an extremely durable and high-quality material consisting of a polyester fiber covered by a coating of PVC, making it nearly impossible to tear. It is 100% synthetic and resistant to rot and mildew. It is highly resistant to UV radiation and fading. It can withstand temperature extremes, ranging from -30C to 70C. It is an ideal material to be used near swimming pools or other aggressive environments with chlorine or salt water. Sagging is minimal as it has a maximum stretch of 3%. It also has a “memory” – it will slowly regain its original shape after it has used, especially when placed out in the sun. Batyline® has 7 advantages:

  • Perfect Aesthetics
  • Unparalleled stability
  • Very easy upkeep
    Remarkable deterioration resistance
  • Full safety guarantees
    Eco-design and 100 % recyclable
  • A quality and certification approach

STAINLESS STEEL

We use #304-grade stainless steel in our products. It contains a maximum of 0.15% carbon, a minimum of 18% chromium and sufficient nickel to retain an austenitic structure at all temperatures. Grade #304 is the most versatile and the most widely used of all stainless steels. Its chemical composition, mechanical properties, weld ability and corrosion/oxidation resistance provide the best all round performance stainless steel.

It is used in all industrial, commercial and domestic fields because of its good corrosion and heat resisting properties. The surface finish on Stainless Steel is finely developed and maintained during finishing process to ensure the pleasing aesthetic appearance of Stainless Steel. Cleaning: Stainless steel is generally resistant to corrosion. Natural hazards such as dust and moisture in the air can attack the finish on this type of outdoor furniture. A regular cleaning of stainless steel frames is required on a monthly basis to remove the natural deposits, salts. Use fresh water only; spray the frames down thoroughly at a high hose pressure. A soft dusting cloth can then be used to enhance the surface.

ALL WEATHER WICKER

All our wicker furniture is hand woven with Viro® fiber, a premium synthetic Polyethylene fiber. Viro® is highly flexible, UV and weather resistant. This fiber is designed to be insensitive to temperature differences ranging between -25C-70C. It is 100% recyclable and resistant to chlorine and salt water. Strong and Durable, Recyclable and Washable Maintenance Free.

Viro® fiber is guaranteed for 3 years from delivery to withstand fading, weathering or cracking. The mechanical and physical properties of Viro® have been tested by the Sentra Teknologi Polymer, Indonesia and the productivity and Standard Board, Singapore in accordance with the test methods issued by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Maintenance: This type of furniture can be left outside all year round and is able to stand very low and high temperatures. When very cold, the weave will become somewhat stiffer than normal and in extremely hot temperatures the weave will become more elastic. The furniture will retain its normal elastic property once the temperature stabilizes.

However, to meet our customer’s satisfaction, we also provide another well known synthetic wicker in the market such as Rehau® and Cyroplene™.
