What materials is your outdoor furniture constructed from?Updated 2 months ago

Our outdoor range is made up of a selection of different materials. Natural Materials like wood and stone require a little more maintenance than synthetic materials, please find a list of materials used below:


MATERIALS:


Acacia Hardwood

The hardwood used across our outdoor range is Acacia Hardwood. This is a great timber for outdoor use due to its resilience to the weather and it is also know for being a unpalatable to insects. Acacia is also a fast growing tree - This means it is a sustainable choice as the plantations can be regenerated quickly.


Powdercoated Steel

Steel is an eco-friendly and renewable resource. It's able to retain the same integrity without having to endure down-cycling processes, which in turn means it requires less energy and has a relatively low environmental impact. Powder coated steel is very durable thanks to its strong coating that acts as a the first line of defense to protect the steel against corrosion.


Bamboo Wicker

Bamboo is extremely fast-growing and requires less water. As it can renew more rapidly, it produces a greater yield, which reduces deforestation. Bamboo is an excellent timber alternative. It requires zero chemicals or pesticides to grow, absorbs greenhouse gases, self-regenerates from new shoots, which creates less soil erosion. The cane produced is very strong, durable and biodegradable.
