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.
