The QT Collection has been designed by Kris Van Puyvelde to showcase a minimalistic, slim look but at the same time, guarantee maximum comfort and stability. Its rounded stainless steel frames are available in two high-quality finishes: electro-polished or brushed (click onto the Use & Care tab to compare their individual characteristics).
The QT line comprises an armchair, relax chair and side table in modern, appealing colors: white, black and cappuccino (seating) or sand (table). The chairs and the loungers are easily stackable. In short, QT stands for cute!
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.
Aluminum or powder-coated. Aluminum is perfect for outdoor use due to its light weight and being highly weather resistant. But also as 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.
Batyline®. The sling of Royal Botania's Alura Collection is made of Batyline® fabrics, a woven polyester fiber protected by a PVC coating. This coating guarantees exceptional resistance to climatic conditions and UV exposure. The fact that there is no moisture absorption results in quick-drying action, little sensitivity to staining, and simplicity in cleaning.
