The Tecno teak outdoor dining table is a radical design. The top is made up of blocks of teak wood glued together under high pressure, much like a Butchers block.
The legs are powder-coated, galvanized steel. Each leg is strengthened by a cross brace. The legs slope outwards, giving a unique industrial look. The table thickness is 2.5cm, dimensions are 2.4m x 1.m

Clear span between the table legs is 122cm at top of table, widening to 155cm at ground level.
Characteristics of teak
Teakwood is a natural material and fine cracks in the end grain of components, e.g. legs and laminated tops, may appear due to changes in temperature and humidity and the consequent change in moisture content of the wood. Small fissures will open in the end grain, this is known as checking. This is normal, especially in heavier components and it will not affect the serviceability of your furniture.
Left to age naturally outside, teak will gradually change from its original colour to a soft, silver-grey as the pigments in the surface layer of the wood begin to fade away.
We recommend that you allow your teak furniture to weather naturally this way and simply clean thoroughly once or twice a year with Teak Cleaner to remove accumulated dirt.
Teak - Tectona Grandis
High quality teak wood planks are used in the manufacture of this outdoor dining table. Planks are laminated for dimensional stability, then go through a secret manufacturing process to recreate an "antique" finish. Over time it will naturally age to a silver colour, but the dark hue can be maintained by applying coloured teak oil.
Being a high quality hardwood, it will ensure long term use in our extreme NZ seasons.
Teak: no particular care is required, unless if you want to keep the dark brown hue. In this case, regularly oil the table with a suitable high quality teak wood stain/preserver.
If dark, black patches develop on the teak surface, this is due to the growth of mold on the table. This can happen if the table is in an area where there is a lot of tree growth and mold spores are present in the air. If the table stays wet for a period of time, the mold spores can grow in these damp conditions. It is not a sign that the wood is rotting. Treatment can be effected by cleaning with a mild bleach solution. Alternatively, it can be sanded off.
