Terrific Teak: Hospitality Trend
Ultra hardwearing , teak has a naturally oily finish that makes it highly resistant to moisture, fire, acid and alkalis. In addition to its durable properties, over time, teak turns an attractive silvery grey color making it the perfect choice for naturally beautiful, long-lasting outdoor furniture products.
