Aluminum

Thanks to the fusion of several aluminum alloys that guarantee solidity, manageability and rust resistance, it is a material of high quality and allows to reach the maximum qualitative and aesthetic results.

Maintenance: To keep the product in good condition for a long time, we recommend a regular cleaning period, particularly frequent in places characterized by high humidity and marine climate. We recommend cleaning the surfaces with a soft cloth using water or neutral detergents. Prolonged and uninterrupted exposures to intense UV radiation or at very low temperatures can affect the initial characteristics of the colored polyester coating. We recommend cleaning and storing products in sheltered areas during long periods of non-use and winter.

Inox

Stainless steel is a material that, thanks to its high resistance to corrosion and to the mechanical characteristics of relief, is more durable and reliable over time.

Maintenance: To keep the product in good condition for a long time, we recommend a regular cleaning period, particularly frequent in places characterized by high humidity and marine climate. We recommend cleaning the surfaces with a soft cloth using water or neutral detergents.

Wood

TEAK: High quality material suitable for outdoor furniture because it is extremely resistant to changes in temperature, water, humidity and saltiness.
IROKO: particular type of wood with numerous mechanical, physical and technological properties: its resistance to external stress and workability despite its hardness. The particular stability and medium-high hardness give this wood a good flexural strenght resistance to deformation and guarantee excellent durability.
MAHOGANY: It is a wood with remarkable mechanical, physical and structural properties. It is a compact and solid wood, which does not undergo alterations over time, but which tends to espond well to wear, compression and bending. Its features of solidity and compactness are accompanied by those of longevity, beauty and resistance to thermal changes.
STONEWOOD: thanks to its high quality and its particular technical characteristics it can be employed in many different ways, but always in very high quality contexts. In particular, it is preferably used for the creation of high-quality furniture. Compact wood, easy to process, does not splinter, it is light, reddish brown, it has an aromatic smell because it contains a characteristic essential oil rich in camphor.

Maintenance: Being a natural material, colour variations or even cracks due to the degree of humidity and sudden changes in temperature may be observed. If no maintenance treatment is received, through the periodic application of common and specific protective oil-based, the surface may take a silver-gray patina that can be easily removed with a light surface sanding down and subsequent polishing with a jute cloth. Small superficial stains due to oil or other food products must be removed promptly, before the wood can absorb them in depth, sanding down the affected surface and then polishing it with a jute cloth.

ELASTIC BELT

Obtained through the weaving of synthetic materials especially conceived outdoor use.

Maintenance: We recommend to avoid prolonged contact with greasy substances and / or dyes which could be absorbed by the covering material used and consequently cause permanent stains and risk to deteriorate the structure of the yarn. It is advisable it is suggested to avoid the use of solvents. Use water and non-abrasive liquid detergents with neutral PH and colourless.

FIBRE CEMENT

Any imperfection related to shades of color, surface cracks or porosity will correspond to the standard and will not be considered valid exceptions in this regard.

Maintenance: For proper maintenance it is recommended to clean the surface with a non-abrasive cloth. Small surface spots due to oil, coffee, wine and other food products must be removed promptly. In the case of resistant stains, cleaning with products containing vinegar.

Stone

Marble is certainly one of the most precious and used stones for the outdoor.
Marble, thanks to its particular composition and nature, is a little porous and not absorbing stone, hardness and resistance, making marble one of the most precious and durable stones in time.
The marble formation takes place by means of a metamorphic crystallization process: calcium carbonate, coming into contact with the sedimentary rocks, gives rise to a set of crystals of calcite and various minerals, which determine the complexion.

Maintenance: To maintain the shine of marble and granite it is necessary to clean the surfaces daily: it is sufficient to dilute the neutral soap in warm water.
The surfaces must be rubbed with a sponge or a soft cloth. It will be sufficient to rinse with a damp cloth, being careful not to leave detergent stains.

PORCELAIN STONEWARE

Porcelain stoneware, thanks to its excellent physical and flexural strenght, turns out to be ideal for outdoor use, being unaffected by atmospheric agents and unalterable to UV rays. This material is obtained through the synthesis process of ceramic clays, feldspars, kaolins and sand.

Maintenance: For the cleaning of stoneware tops it is advisable to use a damp cloth with water and a neutral detergent to be rinsed and dried with a dry cloth. During the washing phase, pay particular attention to avoid the accumulation of dirt.

– it is completely waterproof
– it is flame-retardant and self-extinguishing (class B-s2, d0)
– it has a very high resistance to impacts and scratches
– it s resistant to the use of aggressive chemical detergents
– it is suitable for direct contact with food

Poliuretano tech 100%

The polyurethane Tech is a structural polyurethane, therefore it does not need any inner metallic structure.
Is a high density material (600-700 Kg/m³) that enables to make any shape with very thin designs.
Tech has a high shock resistance, much higher if compared to traditional structural rigid PU, keeping at the same time a good elasticity in terms of seating comfort. It has a good resistance to scratches too.
Cleaning polyurethane seats is very simple, practical and fast.
First of all, it is necessary to remove the dirt, then you must moisten a cloth with water and with a suitable specific product that is not too aggressive. To ensure the durability of the products, clean the surfaces using only warm water and neutral soap.
Do not use aggressive solvents such as acetone or petrol and alkaline based detergents which can chemically attack the material compromising its aesthetics and structural integrity.

TEXTILENE

Textilene is a polyester fiber protected by a PVC coating. The fibers are bonded together so in order to obtain a particularly solid fibrous material which is durable, resistant to stretching and wear resistant too. The most important characteristic is its elasticity, offers excellent resistance to inhibits mold and stains, and has a surface treatment against UV degradation.

Maintenance: Textilene can simply be cleaned with a sponge cloth with soapy water. Abrasives and solvents must absolutely be avoided! It dries very quickly due to their open structure.
