- Natural Larch
- Tropical Wood: Bolondo, Iroko ...

Superior protection and stained wood Option: On request, we can apply extra protection on the wood against UV discoloration and fungal attack. This protection is respectful with the environment.

The ingredients are natural, VOC, and is based on a molecular reaction with the wood fibers. It is available in many tones finish or even transparent.

STEEL

Corten A Steel

We work with all types of metal and especially steel, as cor-ten steel, stainless steel or galvanized steel and powder-painted. All steel finishing procedures and treatments meet the highest quality requirements and compliance with French and European legislation.

All welds are performed according to the recommendations of the EN 1011.

 

AISI 316L or 304 stainless steel

These are iron-carbon alloy steels with added chromium, which forms a protective layer of chromium oxide that makes these steels stainless. Available in brushed, satin or matte finish.

 

Galvanized steel or zinc-plated steel

Galvanising and zinc-plating processes are used to make the steel corrosion-resistant.
Painted finish: once the steel has been galvanized or zinc-plated, it can be painted. We work with top-quality polyester paints for powder-coating (powder paint, oven-hardened). This finish is highly resistant to UV radiation. On request, a choice of colour for your furniture is available from the RAL outdoor selection, which includes Corten look-alike paints. Slate blue, black and Corten brown are the most durable colours.
