Although made to withstand the rigours of an outdoor environment, your furniture will benefit from regular care and maintenance. Barlow Tyrie only uses the best marine quality solid brass and Stainless Steel on their furniture. Neither of these will rust nor deteriorate with age. Teak wood will naturally weather from golden brown to a silver grey color. Teak wood is a natural material and fine cracks in the end grain of components, e.g. legs and arms, may appear due to changes in temperature and humidity and the consequent change in moisture content of the wood. This is normal, especially in heavier components and it will not affect the serviceability of your furniture. We recommend the following products to care for and maintain your teak furniture.
Will quickly remove accumulated dirt.
Will maintain the golden brown color of new teak by using UV inhibitors to prevent the natural greying process and pigment enhancers to help maintain the natural color of teak.
Teak Stain Shield
Forms an invisible layer to protect your teak from everyday stains such as butter, oil and red wine, making the cleaning of accidental spills an easy task.
Stainless Steel Cleaning:
Whilst 316 grade is highly resistant to corrosion it will still require some maintenance to preserve its finish, dependent on the environment. To maintain the finish of both 316 and 304 grades, we recommend you use Barlow Tyrie Stainless Steel Clean and Guard, which cleans the stainless steel and leaves a fine layer of Teflon on the surface to help prevent the build up of contaminants.
If cushions become saturated then place them on one edge and allow the water to drain away until they are thoroughly dry. Do not store cushions when they are wet. We recommend you leave the cushion covers on during the cleaning process. We suggest you clean your cushions before you store them in a dry, well ventilated area. To clean and maintain your cushions, we recommend you use 303 Fabric Cleaner
which will remove dirt, grease, oil and mold. After cleaning we recommend using 303 Fabric Guard
which will protect the fabric from the aging affects of the weather.
