This collection of outdoor lighting will complement any of Royal Botania's outdoor furniture lines.
Aluminum is a non-ferrous metal, which combines great mechanical rigidity with light weight; this makes it especially suitable for making furniture. If treated correctly it has a good resistance to corrosion. One of the treatments is powder coating. After a chemical pre-treatment an epoxy powder is applied statically and baked. The advantages are easy cleaning and endless color variations.
Caring for Aluminum. It is easy to care for: just use mild soap and water (no metal scrubbers please) to clean the surface. To repair minor scratches caused by handling, use touch-up pens in corresponding color.
Fiberglass, PVC-Covered. PVC-coated fiberglass cloth takes fiberglass fabric, fiber-cotton fabric and polyester fabric as basic cloth and is then coated with special technique to make it waterproof and US resistant. It is ideal to insulate curtains and covers (lamp shades).
Caring for Fiberglass. Simply use mild soap and water and apply it with a soft cloth. Avoid the use of scrub sponges.
Glass. Its resistance to staining and scratching makes glass a highly suitable material for outdoor furniture and accessories. The opal versions have a matt acid-washed finish, which are even more scratch and fingerprint resistant as shiny glass surfaces.
Caring for Glass. Clean with classic glass cleaners.
Polyolefin Rope. Polyolefin is an industrial polymer and used for the production of a wide range of commercial products.
Caring for Polyolefin. Spot clean an area using mild soap and water; working in that solution with a soft cloth by blotting (light pressure only).
Stainless Steel. Stainless steel is a ferrous alloy with increased corrosion resistance due to the addition of chrome and nickel. In order to obtain a chrome-oxide and nickel-oxide surface that is of a high-grade purity and homogeneity, thus achieving optimal corrosion resistance, the Royal Botania frames are etched and subjected to a passivating process as a standard treatment. Chlorine (note: sea salt is sodium chlorine) is steel's greatest enemy. For this reason, it is recommended that near the coast this metal be given a surface made as smooth as possible in order to increase the resistance to corrosion even further. The smoother the surface the less porous it is. The lower the porosity, the lower the possibility of dirt deposits accumulating on the metal surface, and thus, the lower the risk of corrosion. Royal Botania produces their furniture with two kinds of stainless steel:
Electro-Polished Stainless Steel underwent an electrochemical process to give the metal extra protection against corrosion.
Brushed Stainless Steel, better known as Inox, is an iron alloy in which corrosion resistance is increased by adding chrome and nickel.
Royal Botania recommends electro-polished stainless steel frames if furniture is used in a corrosive environment.
Teak. As Royal Botania never compromises on quality, only mature, carefully selected, fully grown teakwood is used, all of it harvested in accordance with the strictest environmental standards. The wood's renowned durability is due to its high content of natural oils. The resulting minimal moisture absorption prevents warping and thus gives teak its enormous stability. In addition, teakwood is highly resistant to attacks by pests. It is because of these qualities of matured teakwood, as well as its exceptionally beautiful color and structure, that it is a premium wood especially suitable for outdoor environments.
Caring for Teak. The beautiful thing about teak furniture is that you really don't have to do anything to maintain it unless you really want to. Set it up and leave it out all year long, and it will still hold up year after year, no matter where you live. Its able to withstand climate changes without cracking or warping (or needing maintenance). It will change color as it ages, and the eventual result is a distinguished that is a mark of true teak furniture. But if you prefer the golden brown color of new teak you should click here, for products that can help maintain that color longer. We'll warn you: maintaining the golden brown color will take some work. Our recommendation is to let your teak weather.
One Final Note: DO NOT use teak oil on your teak furniture if you're planning to use it outdoors! Adding oil will cause your beautiful teak furniture to turn black with mildew. It's a bad idea, and something we learned the hard way. As tempting as it is, don't do it. The furniture has enough oil in it already to last for decades, you don't need to replenish it.
