As a teak wood furniture manufacturer from Indonesia, we have main products such as hammock stand, sunbed lounger, sun umbrella, restaurant armchairs etc. Before we go to these items, let us describe about what teak is. Teak is one of the finest wood to create furniture in the world.
The Teak Tree or Tectona, is one of the tropical hardwood birches included in the family Verbenaceae. This tree is originally from the plantations of South East Asia, and can grow to a height of 30 – 40 m. As part of its life cycle, this tree sheds itsleaves every year at dry season. Its longevity is very great, the Teak tree often living to an age of 100 years. Teak is especially noted for its capacity to withstand changes in the weather and season. One of the reasons for this is the ability of the Teak to bend, but not break, in the face of high winds that's why most furniture manufactuers choose the teak wood as their main material.
In Indonesia, cultivation and conservation of the teak tree is managed by the government of Indonesia namely Perum Perhutani ( Forestation Company of Government ). Java is the largest producer of teak because its geography and weather are highly suitable to teak tree plantations. Therefore, Java island is the central of furniture manufacturer where many furniture workers are employed to process the teak wood into unique and beautiful furniture. To get the highest quality of teak, some criteria must be attended to in retrieval process. The older teak trees of up to 40 years of age are the best one to be cut. Shortly, the older the teak tree, the better will be the quality of its wood. Before cutting the teak wood, the water content must be drained from the tree by making a cut at its under side. This draining process takes time 1 to 2 years in order to get the dry enough teak . In this case , teak trees are ready to cut and finally to be a finest wood for making furniture.
Hereafter to anticipate the end of teak wood or to result the cheaper price of furniture, manufacturer try to use alternative wood. Many other hardwoods are mainly used for outdoor furniture and in fact a lot are even marked as “teak substitutes”. There is no substitute for teak and no other hardwood in the world will perform to the same high quality standards as teak in outdoor conditions. Teak is simply the best hardwood in the world for manufacturing furniture especially outdoor teak furniture.
Teak is a close grained hardwood with high natural oil and rubber content. It is one of the hardest, strongest and most durable of all timbers, highly resistant to any rotting and almost impervious to the effects of hot sun, rain, frost or snow. These characteristics combine to make it the ideal timber for all outdoor applications. It has been the number one choice of boat builders for centuries.
