What are the properties of teak?
Teak is a deciduous hardwood tree from the highlands of South-east Asia; it does not come from tropical rainforests. Teak wood has a naturally high oil content, which makes it both stable and resistant to rotting when exposed to climatic extremes. For centuries, this special quality has made teak wood the preferred choice for marine decking and construction and makes it the premium timber for outdoor furniture.
Where does the timber you use come from?
We manufacture our wooden furniture from Teak (Tectona Grandis), which we source from Indonesian government owned plantations on the island of Java.
What is the Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC™) ?
The Forest Stewardship Council™ is an international, non-profit association whose members include environmental, social groups, progressive forestry and timber related companies who are working together in order to improve forest management worldwide. The trademark of the FSC™ on a product indicates that the wood used to make it comes from a source that has been certified by the FSC™ as being well managed and meeting the environmental, social and economic standards that have been set by the FSC™. The FSC™ certificate is only granted to organisations following an annual audit to confirm their compliance with FSC™ standards. Our audit is performed by an FSC™ accredited Certification Body NEPCon™ and our license code is FSC-C007974. For further information, please visit www.fsc.org.
Future Policy Our policy is to move as quickly as possible to FSC™ certification of most of our furniture.
What is the teak weathering process?
Over a few months in an outdoor environment, untreated teak will weather to a silver grey color, which is due to the action of sunlight.
Why does new teak sometimes have "wild" dark or orange stripes?
These markings are perfectly normal and will disappear within a few days, following exposure to the UV spectrum in natural sunlight. These marks are often apparent following the kilning process, which we use to lower the moisture content of the timber prior to manufacture. Kilning reduces the incidence of small cracks that can appear in the furniture due to the changes in temperature and humidity encountered in an outdoor environment.
Why do cracks occasionally appear in my teak furniture?
Teak wood is a natural material and fine cracks in the end grain of components, e.g. legs and arms, may appear due to changes in temperature, humidity and the consequent change in moisture content of the wood. This is normal, especially in heavier components and it will not affect the serviceability of your furniture.
How do you clean teak?
Barlow Tyrie Teak Stain Guard™ forms an invisible layer to protect your teak furniture from everyday stains such as butter, oil and red wine, making the cleaning of accidental spills an easy task. Barlow Tyrie Teak Color Guard™, applied when the furniture is new or after cleaning, will help maintain the golden brown color of new teak by using pigment enhancers together with UV inhibitors to prevent the natural greying process.
Do I need to oil my teak furniture?
Treating with teak oil or other preservatives is not necessary, it will not extend the life of your furniture and is purely cosmetic. We do not recommend oiling your furniture.
