Is a balcony bench cushion included?
Is the balcony bench watertight?
The balcony bench is not 100% waterproof because there is minimal space left between the wooden slats. In the event of heavy or long rain, the storage space will not remain dry, but it will not become soaked. Of course, this also depends on how sheltered the place where the bench is located is and how long it rains. We recommend that you do not place items in the storage space that should not get wet in wet weather or during wet spells.
How heavy is the balcony bench?
The 120 cm wide balcony bench weighs approximately 40 kg. The 100 cm wide balcony bench weighs approximately 36 kilograms. The 85 cm wide balcony bench weighs approximately 33 kilograms. The 80 cm wide balcony bench weighs approximately 31 kg.
How can I best maintain the balcony bench?
To provide the best protection for the balcony bench, we recommend treating the bench yearly with a high-quality teak sealer such as Teak Wonder Teak Sealer or Rubio Monocoat Hybrid Wood Protector. Treatment is best and most convenient when the balcony bench is not yet assembled. This allows you to fully treat each individual component before assembling the balcony bench.
Can I leave the balcony bench untreated?
Teakwood is naturally very resistant to the elements such as sun, wind and rain. The honey-brown colour will turn into a platinum-grey colour in 8 to 12 months.
However, since wood is a natural product, the wood surface will show tiny cracks due to drying and working. This is a natural and not harmful effect. Yearly treatment with Teak Wonder Teak Sealer or Rubio Monocoat Hybrid Wood Protector provides better protection against drying out and discoloration and thus guarantees a longer life
