Bench Care

.

Your new Commemorative Bench will be delivered assembled, fine sanded and ready to use.

The high levels of natural rubber and silica found in our high grade Teak allows the furniture to sit outdoors all year round without rotting or moving.

We recommend NOT treating your Teak Commemorative Bench. Simply put it in situe, leave and expect a life time of use.

Over time, your Teak Commemorative Bench will turn a graceful silver. This is purely superficial and presents no long term structural damage.

Why does Teak turn silver? Its nature's way of protecting itself. When bare Teak timber is exposed to the elements, it oxidises and forms a layer to protect itself. This layer can be gently sanded back or chemically cleaned to reveal the unprotected, bare Teak timber beneath.

You can maintain the original colour of Teak by applying a Sealer. A sealer provides a film of protection over the timber and maintains the original colour.

We recommend buying a Clear Satin Flexterior (available from national DIY chains) - A flexible exterior satin wood finish with ultraviolet and fungicide protection of the film. Flexterior with its special properties will not peel, crack or blister when correctly applied. 3 coats will bring out and maintain a rich golden Teak colour for approximately 1 year.

DO NOT APPLY OILS TO A BENCH THAT IS EITHER DAMP, DIRTY OR SILVER DUE TO AGEING - YOUR BENCH WILL TURN BLACK
