Restaurant Furniture Using Synthetic Teak Adds Low-Maintenance Style
Teak is an exotic tropical hardwood tree found in southeast Asia, mainly India, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Burma. Teak trees are also cultivated in several countries throughout Africa, the Caribbean, and Central America.
Teak wood has many desirable properties that make it suitable for use in outdoor furniture, including its resistance to weathering and wear-and-tear. Teak is highly resistant to fungi and insects and, combined with its natural, exotic beauty, is considered one of the most valuable boat-building and decorative woods in the world. Teak is not degraded by contact with other materials, such as metals, making it very valuable for the manufacture of high-value furniture.
You may be wondering about synthetic teak and asked yourself, "What is synthetic teak made of?"
Synthetic teak is a non-porous composite material that looks like high-quality natural teak. Synthetic teak is low maintenance and more durable, and lighter than, natural teak. Synthetic teak is splinter and crack-free, as well as weather, water, and UV resistant. It is also immune to rot and insects. Synthetic teak is seen by some as a green, environmentally-friendly alternative to the harvesting of natural teak, reducing the forestry industry's environmental impact on nature.
Synthetic teak provides the universally recognized class and style of natural teak without the maintenance, saving time, worry, and money.
