Cane-line teak furniture is made from WWF-GFTN certified production in Indonesia. This is a guarantee that the teak production supports responsible forest management. Teak is a hardwood that is ideal for outdoor use due to its high oil content. Our teak furniture is delivered untreated. If the furniture remains untreated, the teakwood will patina over time and turn pale grey color. If you wish to retain the original golden color, we recommend treating teak furniture with a recommended teak sealant. Please note that teakwood is a natural product and therefore continues to change. This means that small cracks can develop due to drying and that slats can warp slightly.
If you wish to retain the golden color, the furniture must be treated with teak sealant before use and on a regular basis. How often treatment is needed depends on the climate and whether the furniture is placed in a sheltered position, for example under a roof. As a general rule, teak tabletops should be cleaned and treated at least a couple of times a year.
If your teak furniture becomes silvery-grey or black on the surface, it can be cleaned with a recommended teak cleaner. After cleaning and rinsing thoroughly with water, allow the furniture to dry. When the furniture is completely dry, it is ready to be treated with teak sealant. If the furniture has been exposed to the elements over an extended period of time and developed patina, it may be necessary to sand it down before cleaning and treating it.
Clean daily with a moist cloth, water and washing-up liquid. Alternatively, use a soap flake solution to saturate the wood so that the furniture does not get stain as easily. You can also use a lukewarm cloth or a soft sponge for cleaning of your teak furniture.
There are several ways to properly store your furniture in autumn and winter months for maximum protection and to make spring cleaning easier.
1) It is best to store your furniture on a covered terrace, patio or carport, where it is protected from the elements.
2) Alternatively, it can be left outside under a furniture cover. Please note, however, that condensation can form under the furniture cover, which can cause mold and mildew. Therefore, make sure to lift the cover away from the furniture to ensure proper air circulation and minimize condensation.
Cane-line offers a wide range
of furniture in powder-coated aluminum. Powder coating serves as a
protective layer that is tinted in a variety of colors. Aluminum
furniture is ideal for use outdoors as well as indoors.
Aluminum furniture generally requires a minimum of maintenance. If the
furniture is stored near the coast, it will need to be cleaned more
frequently using fresh water and soap. Do not be too rough on your
furniture to avoid causing dents, as this can damage the powder coating.
At worst, moisture can reach the aluminum and damage the finish. Vases,
glass and similar items can lead to marks on the surface, if there is
moisture under the item for more days. Make sure to keep the surface
clean and dry, if things / items are put on the table for several days.
furniture can stay outdoors all year round, but it is best to store it
under a furniture cover during winter months or during periods when the
furniture is not in use. Please note, however, that condensation can
form under the furniture cover, which can cause mold and mildew.
Therefore, make sure to lift the cover away from the furniture to ensure
proper air circulation and minimize condensation. If possible, it is
best to store your furniture indoors during winter months to protect it
from the elements.
