Teak is the absolutely most suitable type of wood for production of garden furniture as the high natural contents of oil in teak wood makes it almost indestructible. The natural combined qualities of teak also secure that the garden furniture keeps its shape and that cracks and wind scratches only arise to a small extent.
When you unpack your teak furniture the first time, the teak will often appear with colour variations. These colour variations disappear however before long through the natural action of sun, wind, and water.
Teak is not just teak – quality and durability vary very much.
A-grade = platinum sorting – very uniform
B-grade = premium sorting – more wavy-grained
C-grade = medium sorting – very wavy-grained and brighter
Da’core only uses A- and B-grade teak for garden furniture.
Furthermore, the way the wood is dried before production may also differ very much. C-grade teak dries for 3 months in the sun, and its humidity is therefore approx. 25%.
A- and B-grade teak used by Da’core dry in a kiln where the humidity is reduced to the
correct level of 12% before the production is started. This process secures that the wood keeps its shape and stability.
