MATERIALS AND MAINTENANCE
Unlike similar products on the market, ZIMMER rope is specially braided by integrating high tenancity polyolefin multi-filament yarn with advanced insert material formulated to produce a rope that is stronger, more flexible and durable for all weather conditions.
The rope is weatherproof, resistance to physical stress, UV radiation and ideally suited for outdoor use. To prevent dirt deposits, vacuum or lightly brush the rope regularly. Most dirt and stains can be cleaned if promptly treated. It is recommended for indoor and outdoor use.
ZIMMER rattan (HDPE) is unrivaled for its durability, weather-fastness and of luxuriousness of color, texture and touch. Strong enough to withstand the harshest conditions yet supple enough to be woven into artful patterns by our master weavers, it has revolutionized outdoor furniture.
The final product is non-toxic, non-polluting and fully recyclable. It is maintenance-free, easy to clean and recommended for indoor and outdoor use.
Furniture made from this beautiful premium teak, sourced from sustainable plantations, is rich in natural tannins and is able to withstand even extreme weather conditions over an exceptionally long lifetime. The wood is resistant to rain, strong sunlight, freezing conditions and fluctuating temperatures. These qualities make it particularly well-suited to longterm outdoor use.
ZIMMER teak furniture requires no special maintenance besides other than periodic cleaning. If allowed to age naturally outdoors, it will eventually turn to a soft, silver-gray as surface pigments fade. As this is a natural process, the silver-gray color may appear
irregularly, especially at first.
To retain the wood’s original, golden hue, use teak oil at least twice a year. Allow your teak furniture with cushions to dry before using covers. To prevent mold and stains, ZIMMER recommends not to use covers for tables with teak tabletops.
ZIMMER use the best outdoor fabrics, Sunbrella, that are manufactured using 1005 solution dyed acrylic yarns for maximum resistance to the fading and degrading effects of sunlight. All fabrics are finished with a water-repellent coating on the surface to reduce water absorbency. If the fabric does become wet from prolonged exposure, they will come to no harm and the fabrics will dry out naturally.
For easy day-to-day maintenance of your Sunbrella fabric:
- Brush off loose dirt.
- Spray on a cleaning solution of water and mild soap.
- Use a soft bristle brush to clean.
- Allow cleaning solution to soak into the fabric.
- Rinse thoroughly until all soap residue is removed.
- Air dry.
QUICK DRY FOAM
It has been specifically designed for outdoor use in residential applications and marine environments. Unlike conventional foam, quick dry foam drains quickly allowing the cushions to dry fast even after being saturated while protecting it against mold growth.
This is thanks to the open-cell structural makeup which allows water and air to easily pass through the material.
Another advantage of using quick dry foam cushions is that they can remain considerably cleaner than conventional foam cushions. Dirt, dust and irritants can get trapped in the structure of traditional foam which is almost impossible to get out.
