All of our luxurious teak outdoor furniture is manufactured using the highest quality, premium grade-A plantation grown teak from the island of Java, Indonesia. The teakwood used in our production is of the highest standard, and comes from government accredited TFT supported teak plantations.
The fantastic quality of teak is that it is highly durable, which makes it perfectly suited to all outdoor environments. Left untreated, it will naturally weather to a silvery grey colour, which does not effect product performance. The more sun and rain teak outdoor furniture receives, the quicker this ‘greying’ process will occur, usually taking about 12 months. If some parts of the furniture are more exposed to the outdoor elements than others, then it may be a good idea to move the furniture to a different spot, in order to achieve a consistency of ‘greying’.
If you prefer the original look, there are a number of ways to ensure that the ‘greying process’ does not occur. We recommend Sikkens who have a fantastic range of water based products. The product should be "water based" rather than "oil based" given our premium quality A-grade teak has a naturally high oil content and does not require any additional oil. The product instructions must be read carefully before applying. The product should not be applied to the runners of extension tables. If you have any questions, the knowledgable team at Sikkens are there to provide advice.
Whether there are environmental or man-made marks, these can be easily removed using a soft bristled scrubbing brush and warm soapy water. If there are any stubborn stains, these can be removed by sanding the furniture with some fine grade sandpaper. Timber cleaners are also available and can be used once you have read the instructions carefully. If the furniture has aged considerably, fine to medium grade sandpaper can be used to sand the entire surface of the furniture prior to the cleaning and application of the finish.
Where applicable, our luxurious outdoor furniture range is made with high quality grade 304 stainless steel, which contains a minimum of 18% chromium and a sufficient amount of nickel to ensure an austenitic structure at all temperatures, as well as a maximum of 0.15% carbon. As the most versatile and most widely used of all the stainless steels, grade 304 stainless steel has a number of useful qualities. Such qualities include its chemical composition, mechanical properties, weld ability and oxidation/corrosion resistance, that ensure the best all round performance stainless steel.
Being used in domestic, industrial and commercial fields due to its impressive heat resistance and corrosion properties, stainless steel is a fantastic option. During the finishing process, the surface finish is finely developed and maintained in order to create a beautiful aesthetic appearance.
Stainless steel does require some maintenance in order to preserve its new look. Simply clean the stainless steel with warm water containing a mild detergent and a Scotch-Brite pad, then wash down with fresh water and towel dry. The cleaning frequency will be determined by the type of environment that your Bali Republic outdoor furniture is situated, for instance, coastal environments will require more frequent cleaning than inland environments. If brown spots, known as "tea staining", start appearing, then increase the cleaning frequency + tea staining is easily removed. For stainless steel outdoor furniture that has been neglected, there are a number of products that can be used to restore the original look. We recommend Cyndan products.
Hand woven with Viro® fibre, Rehau® or Cyroplene™ fibres, all of our wicker furniture is of the highest quality. The fibres contained in the furniture are made by premium synthetic polyethylene fibre manufacturers, ensuring that all fibres are highly flexible, as well as being UV and weather resistant. They are further resistant to both chlorine and salt water, and can withstand temperatures of -25 C to 70 C. Viro® fibre can withstand fading, weather and cracking for 3 years from the date of delivery, guaranteed.
Being weatherproof, rust proof and easy to take care of, all of our wicker furniture frames can be left outside all year round and will easily withstand both extremely low and high temperatures. Although in extremely hot temperatures the weave may become somewhat more elastic than normal, and a bit stiffer in extremely cold temperatures, no special maintenance is needed for any item in our wicker range.
French company Ferrari is the proud manufacturer of Batyline® mesh, which is used widely within our premium outdoor furniture range. As a high quality material which is also extremely durable, Batyline® mesh consists of a polyester fiber covered by a coating of PVC, making it practically impossible to tear. Additionally, it is 100% synthetic and is also resistant to any rotting or mildew, as well as UV radiation and fading.
Withstanding extreme temperatures, ranging between -30 C and 70 C, Batyline® mesh is a great material for use around a swimming pool or any other aggressive environments where salt water or chlorine are present. With a maximum stretch of 3%, any sagging in this material is minimal, and its original shape is slowly regained after use due to its “memory,” especially when in the sun.
Batyline® mesh is further resistant to ultraviolet rays, fading and mildew. As the mesh weave speeds up the drying process, the furniture is fine to be left outside near swimming pools and in backyards. If any light staining does occur, it can easily be removed using a solution of water and mild detergent, then rinsed with clear water and thoroughly dried. On the other hand, a quality commercial outdoor furniture cleaner and protector can remove heavy stains. If using a pressure hose on a low setting to clean the mesh, try to ensure that the teak frame is avoided if applicable.
