Proper usage and maintenance is vital for getting the most out of the valuable resources we have. Our designs are made to last for generations, but just like everything else, they need a little care to get there.
Origin Oak grows in most temperate zones. The Skagerak oak comes from European forests and is either 100% FSC certified or FSC mix certified, supporting sustainable forest management. The selection of the wood is extremely careful and all processing is by hand, so that only the best and most durable pieces of wood are used in production.
Why Oak is a sturdy and hardwearing type of wood containing natural tannins that will protect against bacterial growth. Combined with its light, elegant colour and well-defined grains, this makes oak wood safe choice for high-quality interior. Cleaning The wood comes with no finish. If you choose not to treat it with soap or oil, use a suitable cleaning agent for wood.
Maintenance As the wood is untreated it may be affected by grease and colorants. For this reason, we recommend saturating the wood with soap or a suitable furniture oil to make it more resistant. If you wish to use soap or oil, use a suitable product. Be aware that the wood will change colour when applying soap or oil.
Why Stainless steel is a light and long-lasting material with superb strength and is easy to maintain.
Cleaning Use soapy water and wipe with a dry cloth.
Maintenance Minor scratches and oxide stains can be removed with a non-abrasive scouring pad. Care products such as Gleerustol can also be used. If used on kitchen utilities, always remember to wash it thoroughly after.
Caution When using special care products you should avoid all contact with wood in order not to damage the surface. Do not use any kind of products containing chlorine as this will damage the surface and make it vulnerable to corrosion.
