UV All Weather Wicker

Product Information:

Our UV All Weather Wicker furniture is woven from a synthetic material that is ideal for our Australian weather. A UV inhibitor is baked into the wicker fibre during the manufacturing process and we offer a 3 year warranty against peeling, cracking and fading.

All the frames are made from aluminium which will not rust or corrode.

The UV fabric on the cushion is fade, water and chlorine resistant and specifically designed for outdoor use. The fabric comes with a 2 year warranty against fading.

Care Instructions:

  • The wicker and frame can be hosed down or cleaned with mild soapy water for tougher stains.
  • The fabric cushion covers are machine washable, we recommend a cold, delicate wash once a year/season. If covers are washed excessively you may eventually strip the fabric of its UV properties. You can spot clean the fabric with a wet sponge.
  • To prolong the life of the cushions we recommend storage in dry covered conditions when not in use.
  • Weather protection covers are available to purchase for the furniture if desired.
  • If any residue accumulates on the exposed aluminium, it can be remoNatural Rattanved with a stainless steel cleaner.

Natural Rattan

Product Information:

Our Alfresco Furniture is made from Kubu and Abaca:
Kubu - Is a fast growing hard vine from the rattan family. Lengths of kubu are woven over and around solid wood frames to create furniture pieces.

Abaca -  Is harvested from Hemp Palms (Banana Family) that are twisted and rolled into a strong rope which is again woven around solid wood frames.

This type of furniture is recommended for an indoor or fully covered Alfresco area. Kubu and Abaca is not suitable for exposure to any degree of weather. If left without suitable cover, the wicker will break down and the frame may rot.

*Limited 1 year warranty on natural rattan*

Care Instructions:

  • Abaca can be oiled with Orange Oil if it begins to fade. This will naturally replenish the colour.
  • Cushion covers are dry clean only.
  • We do not recommend applying any cleaning detergents to the wicker.
  • If your setting is dusty, we recommend using a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment to clean it.
  • Keep your setting away from UV rays, rain or moisture, and purchase a weather proof cover from us if you are in doubt of how protected it is in your area.

Natural Teak

Product Information:

Teak is a very dense and oily wood.  The oil keeps water from seeping into the wood. This means teak furniture can be left outside and endure years of rain, wind, heat, and cold. Our teak is sourced from plantations in Indonesia.

Like any timber, teak will show small movements in the elements of nature. This may result in the timber moving and cracks forming in the furniture piece. Every piece of natural teak furniture is one of a kind and will have different colour variations. Over time the elements will cause surface erosion, discolouration, mildew, greying and roughness because the sun will deplete the natural oils.

*1 year structural warranty on all teak items*

Care Instructions:

  • Oil your teak with orange oil as this will feed the wood and prevent it from drying out.
  • Purchase a sealer and apply it annually to protect your teak from weather. You can purchase a sealer from Bunnings by Bondall for Teak.
  • If you prefer to let your teak grey naturally then don’t apply products as frequently.
  • Be aware that treatments may alter the colour and you should do a patch test before you apply.
  • If you purchase a cover for your table be aware that it may trap moisture and increase the chance of mildew growth.
  • Never use bleach, a brass brush, a pressure washer or steel wool on Teak.
  • Always protect your table against placing hot items directly onto the wood.

Lavastone

Product Information:

Lavastone tops are engineered as a strong natural composite, mixing lava stone dust with resin to create concrete-look furniture pieces.

Lavastone will not chip, crack or break easily because of the composite nature of the material. The lavastone tops have been tested and approved for outdoor use, and are resistant to UV and water.

As this is a composite material, there will be colour and finish variations with our Lavastone products.

Care Instructions:
 
  • For regular maintenance clean with a damp cloth and mild soap.
  • Never use acidic household products or bleach on your table as they will erode the sealer and may cause staining.
  • If any acidic liquid comes into contact with your lava stone table rinse it immediately with warm water e.g. carbonated drinks, juices, vinegar etc.
  • Always protect your table against placing hot items directly onto the wood.
