Teak

The traditional hardwood - perfect for demanding applications such as the decks of ocean going yachts - and for garden furniture!  Combining strength with a high proportion of natural oils, teak is ideal for creating the smoothest of finishes.

  • The wood will mellow to an attractive silver/grey colour. 
  • If you prefer to retain the rich golden brown you should apply an annual coating of teak oil. 
  • A regular clean with warm soapy water will enhance the natural beauty of the timber. 
  • Teak is a natural product, so some cracking and splitting is expected over time. 
  • Teak benches are regularly specified for use in public parks. 
  • Durability Guide:  25 years +.
