To protect the bamboo furniture from rain, dust and humidity a layer of skin is left on the bamboo poles. This will protect the bamboo poles used for legs and frames against rain and dust the same way lacquer and oil protect raw wood.
To further safeguard and protect the bamboo against the increasingly wet summers we apply a layer of biodegradable Nano Shield to the bamboo poles. The nano shield is 100% absorbed into the bamboo. It is water repellant and ads years to the service life of the furniture.
The bamboos are treated in a pressure tank to extract sugar and any bugs from the poles. This treatment makes the furniture is safe to export. Before processed, the poles are dried in the sun till they contain 12% humidity.
The tabletops are made from bamboo slats. To make the slats, we remove the skin from the poles. This makes the slats more susceptible to moisture and stains.
Three layers of clear Nano Shield lacquer are applied to protect the tops. The lacquer does not change the appearance of the bamboo slats..
Cleaning and maintenace
We recommend treating the bamboo at least once a year with GREY-GO bamboo protector. GREY-GO is widely available on the Internet.
