The Bloomsbury hardwood bench is a top of the range, Teak, heavy duty park, street & landscape seating range. The hardwood Bloomsbury models use only the highest grades of kiln dried Teak and use heavier sections of timber where appropriate.
During the manufacturing process of this hardwood bench range, a further selection is undertaken to ensure that only Teak of the very best quality is used in the manufacture. Genuine Teak (Tectona Grandis) is the premier hardwood timber for outdoor furniture. Teak combines its beautiful appearance with a strength and durability that is unequalled by any other hardwood timber. Teak has a close grain and a naturally high oil content that makes it both stable and resistant to rot.
The Teak used for the Bloomsbury range of contract hardwood benches comes mainly from the island of Java in Indonesia. It is grown in plantations and is not from tropical rain forests. The plantations from which the Teak is purchased are nearly all owned and controlled by the Indonesian Government Department.
