Burmese Teak & FSC Teak
Teak is a hardwood of the family Tectona Grandis. Not all teak wood is the same. There are many grades of teak quality and we have chosen the world's best quality Burmese teak and FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) teak. Burmese teak is denser and heavier with 500% more natural oil content than Indonesian plantation teak. Burmese teaks' higher oil content aids in prolonging the natural weathering process and its high density naturally repel parasites. Our Burmese teak's appearance is rich golden color with beautiful grain patterns. We use only the heartwood portion (center) of the tree, void of any loose knots or checks. This makes for strong, even colored teak wood. Our Burmese Teak comes from properly managed government forests. Our FSC teak is Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified. Teak does not come from rainforests and is not an endangered wood.

Shorea - Teak Alternative
Shorea is a hardwood of the family Dipterocarpaceae. Shorea (yellow balau) is a very dense, tightly grained wood that is heavily laden with rich oils and resins. Shorea has texture that is very fine and even. Our shorea hardwood looks very much like Burmese teak hardwood in color. Although, very similar in characteristics to Burmese teak we enjoy working with shorea for its durability, strength, seasoning and mechanical properties. For centuries, shorea has been used for heavy-duty outdoor garden furniture, shipbuilding, heavy construction and coveted for its excellent strength and weather resistant qualities.

Sunbrella Fabric
Sunbrella fabric is made from 100% solution-dyed acrylic yarns. Solution-dying is the process of adding color to acrylic fiber during manufacturing while they are in a liquid state. This characteristic of Sunbrella fabric is the key to locking in color. Fade proof, stain-resistant these fabrics are worry free and long lasting. We use Sunbrella fabric for all our teak furniture lines, including our teak deep seating cushions. Sunbrella fabric is also an available option for our umbrella canopies too!

Kiln Dried
Our Burmese teak and FSC teak hardwood is cut into rough board lumber and initially air dried for 10 days. Next, the Burmese teak and FSC teak hardwood is kiln dried for up to 60 days. These woods are finally sun-dried to achieve a beauty golden hue. At time of shipment, a moisture content range between 8% - 14% is achieved. This is the ideal moisture content for Burmese teak and FSC teak hardwood for our dry North American climate. This drying process is essential in reducing warping, cracking, checking and aids in prolonging the life of outdoor garden Burmese teak furniture and garden outdoor FSC teak furniture. This promotes long lasting high quality outdoor garden teak furniture.

TEAK FACTS & COMPARISONS

Teak has been the number one choice of wood for garden outdoor furniture for centuries because of its beauty and durability. Teak is the standard by which all other outdoor woods are compared.

Teak is an extremely dense hardwood with high natural oil content that makes it the most weather resistant wood for outdoor use. It is resistant to rot and insect infestation. Teak is a very durable wood that will last for decades when used outdoor.

Teak actually beautifies with age. No maintenance is required, except maybe an occasional cleaning with a light detergent. Teak furniture can be left outdoors untreated and will weather over time to a smooth feel and a silvery grey patina.

NOT ALL TEAK WOOD IS THE SAME - KNOW THE DIFFERENCE

Burmese Teak vs. Plantation Teak - There are many different grades of teak. Not all teak wood is the same. When seeking the sophistication of teak, you must know that there is a significant quality difference between world's best Burmese teak and Indonesian plantation teak. Burmese teak trees are naturally slow growing in their native cool climate and high mountainous elevation. Selectively harvested at a mature age of at least 70 years old, this maturity allows for these trees to fully develop into trees with a large girth, producing both a superior quality and more useable heartwood. This heartwood is void of knots, tight grained and abundantly rich with natural oils and resins. Comparatively, most manufacturers use Indonesian plantation teak because it is the most abundant and hence the cheapest teak available. Grown in a foreign, warm habitat, Indonesian plantation teak has undergone genetic modification and is a faster growing strain of teak. Plantation “hybrid fast growing” teak does not possess the same qualities of the natural "slow growing" Burmese teak. It is harvested premature at about 20 years old, contains only 20% of the natural oils and resins of Burmese teak and weighs 20% less. As a result, Indonesian plantation teak has a shorter life expectancy, inferior grain character and a rougher texture than Burmese teak.

OUR PREMIUM BURMESE TEAK LINE - PARKE TEAK

Park Teak Logo

Parke Teak™ Premium furniture is crafted with the world's finest, genuine reforested Burmese teak (Tectona Grandis). Burmese teak is denser, heavier, tighter grained and has 500% more natural oils than Indonesian plantation teak. Its appearance is a richer golden color with a more beautiful grain pattern. The higher oil content aids in prolonging the natural weathering process. Premium Burmese outdoor teak furniture is very rare on the market for outdoor furniture. It is often used as hand railings on yachts or as interior furniture.

At Park Bench Teak and Garden we always set high quality standards. For our Parke Teak™ Premium furniture manufactured with Burmese Teak our quality is unsurpassed.

FACTS - PARKE TEAK™ PREMIUM FURNITURE WITH BURMESE TEAK

Burmese Teak - Our Parke Teak™ Premium furniture is manufactured with Burmese Teak. Simply put, Burmese teak will always look the best, feel the smoothest, and last the longest of all other teak woods in the world.

Premium Cuts - We use thick generous portions of only the heartwood portion of the teak log (center portion of tree that contains the tightest grain and highest concentration of oils and resins within the tree) for construction. Our Burmese teak wood is trimmed of any sap wood (outer growth of tree, consisting of deadwood and bark), dead knots, checking and imperfections.

Kiln Dried - Our Burmese teak is kiln dried up to 40 days to a moisture content range of 10% to 14%. This is the ideal moisture content for garden outdoor teak furniture in our dry North American climate. It is then sun-dried for several days to achieve a beautiful golden hue. This drying process is essential in reducing warping, cracking, checking and aids in prolonging the life of outdoor teak furniture.

History - The first garden outdoor teak furniture was made from Burmese teak decking that had been salvaged from old sailing ships. In spite of the abuse the decking took, this Burmese teak wood endured and remained in great condition. The Burmese teak decking was recycled and made into outdoor furniture, giving birth to the garden outdoor teak furniture industry. Shipbuilders have known for centuries about the beauty, smooth texture, and superior weather resistance of Burmese teak wood.

DURABILITY - The most important characteristic of Burmese teak is its durability in all weather conditions. Burmese teak is an extremely dense grained hardwood that resists rotting, warping, shrinking, swelling and insect infestation. Its high natural oil content continually preserves the wood so it can be left outdoors for decades without maintenance. It is considered the “waterproof” wood. Burmese teak is very smooth to the touch and does not splinter. Burmese teak has a life expectancy of 80 years left untreated.

Warranty - For our Parke Teak™ Premium furniture we offer a 5-year limited warranty against structural failure, wood rot and insect infestation. Structural failure after incorrect assembly, variations in wood color due to weathering, roughness, and non-structural cracks or splits are not warranted. Park Bench Teak and Garden will not be liable for failure caused by abuse, neglect, or the application of paint or polyurethane.

Environmentally Correct - Our Burmese teak is harvested from selective mature old growth teak trees. In accordance with a well-established system, our Burmese teak is selectively harvested from properly managed and sustainable forests that comply with government agency's rules and regulations. Their selective process is environmentally correct, where only the bigger, older trees are harvested because they are impeding the development and survival of the younger healthier teak trees and furthermore causing an imbalance for maintaining a healthy forest.
