WHAT IS TEAK?
Teak is a kind of wood. Its origins come from the rainforest. Teak wood comes from the teak tree, a tree of the Lamiaceae family. We can find it in some Asian countries such as Burma, Thailand and Indonesia.
Teak tends to be more expensive than other kinds of wood for so many reasons. A part from its hardness and extraordinary durability, teak is one of the most beautiful and elegant that exist, hence its price and value.
A table or a chair made of high quality teak can resist decades outdoors. Its durability is far superior to pine or oak.
The government has official teak tree plantations, where only a certain number of trees can be felled each year, and each tree is replaced by planting a new tree on the same site.
For this reason, you have to be careful when buying teak, as it not always comes from this so called ‘legal forests’, where government permits for logging do exist.
You can choose between two sizes: the 80 x 60 table and the 120 x 80 table, which you can close and leave it in 120 x 40. The latter also has two heights for use as a coffee table or dining table.
Both models are foldable to save space or to store them indoors during the winter months.
TEAK ARMCHAIRS AND STOOLS
As seating you can choose chairs or stools.
The chairs are designed as the classic director’s chairs, but we have opted for high quality finishes in each of the pieces. The stools are designed to take up as little space as possible and have extra seating for guests or special cases.
Both models are foldable to take up as little stowage space as possible on the boat.
MAINTENANCE OF NAUTICAL TEAK TABLES AND CHAIRS
All pieces of furniture are made for use on the exteriors of boats, as teak wood contains natural oils that give it extraordinary properties to resist moisture. These oils protect the furniture against dry rot, fungi and pests.
The maintenance of outdoor furniture, especially those used on your yacht or sailboat, is essential. Teak oil is necessary for the care of this furniture and it will always look as good as new.
