Teak is a close grained hardwood with a high natural oil content. This makes it hard wearing, highly resistant to rotting and almost impervious to the effects of sun, rain, frost or snow. These characteristics combine to make it the ideal timber for all outdoor applications. Only premium grade plantation-grown teak is used for the manufacture of PNZ furniture. The features of premium grade teak are a straight grain structure, the absence of knots, splits or cracks and an even overall colour
PNZ buffed teak benefits from an enhanced surface preparation procedure, where the natural oils already contained within the teak are brought to the surface and burnished to produce a rich sheen and a consistent colour.The features of premium grade teak are consistent grain structure, the absence of knots, splits or crack.
All teakwood we use in our production comes from TFT supported teak plantations only. Even more, now we also implement SVLK (timber legality verification system), a series of ongoing processes aimed at generate the standards expected to provide legality and assurance for all parties. With this system, overseas consumers were not need to doubt the legality of wood from Indonesia.
Maintainance & Care
Teak does not require any special maintainance routine.Left outside, the exposed surfaces of the furniture will become a soft silvery grey in color. Besides, weather will cause some surface erosion leading to slight surface roughness, possible mildew and checking. Checking is a natural process that occurs when teak develops small crack in the end grain. However, this does not affect the durability of teak furniture.
For daily care of your furniture, use a damp cloth (not too wet) or a soft-bristled brush with a mild solution of warm water and natural soap. Do not use soap containing detergent and in case of a spill, make sure you remove it immediately.
Oiling for Preventive Treatment
If you want to protect the wood from the start, apply a protective coating teak oiling. Teak is resistent to them. This seals the pores of the wood and creates a natural protection and can withstand extreme climate conditions. Even rain and saltwater will not deteriorate the teak. Once furniture has been oiled, it needs to be re oiled regularly. This involves cleaning and preparing the timber prior to reoiling. Please feel free to contact us.
To remove stubborn stains or superficial scratches, extra fine sandpaper can be used. Make sure you always rub in the direction of the wood grain.
