What makes our teak lawn furniture and other teak products superior to the competition?
All GOLDENTEAKTM brand products provide excellent quality at reasonable prices. Below is a consumer fact sheet with information on quality specifications for teak lawn furniture or indoor furniture. Please call us at (978) 689 4041 for any additional questions. Pictures showing the quality of our teak furniture can be found at the bottom of this page.
GOLDENTEAKTM brand products conform to the following quality specifications:
A) TEAK WOOD - SOLID, GRADE A. All GOLDENTEAKTM brand products are made of Solid Grade A Teak Wood obtained from renewable Government Plantations in Indonesia (harvested at 20 year cycles, first planted by Dutch Colonists about 200 years ago). We use solid pieces of wood (rather than fingerjointed sections) for all our construction.
B) KILN DRIED. All Solid Grade A Teak Wood used in GOLDENTEAKTM brand products is kiln dried to a moisture content of 8 - 12%. This process is vastly superior to Air Drying offered by others. Kiln Drying ensures wood dryness at the core (not just the surface) and therefore eliminates or reduces checking, cracking, splitting and warpage - important considerations when shopping for teak lawn furniture.
C) MORTISE AND TENON JOINERY. All GOLDENTEAKTM brand products use Mortise and Tenon joinery in their construction. This is the most superior of all construction methods, resulting in solid durability. The Tenons are secured in the Mortises with Teak Dowels or screws as appropriate.
D) MACHINE MADE. All GOLDENTEAKTM brand products are Fully machine made. Machine made construction is about 50% more expensive in Indonesia, since it requires investment in machines and stricter process control. Fully Machine Made is superior to partially machine made as well as hand made. Fully machine made product allows for part interchangeability and easier assembly. Machine made products are more precise, and allow Goldenteak to ship these products Flat Pack Assembled, and have replacement parts that fit when you may experience shipping damage.
E) FLAT PACK ASSEMBLED. GOLDENTEAKTM brand products are Flat Pack Assembled where possible. This method of delivery ensures less shipping damage, and reduces shipping costs, shipping being charged based on Actual Weight rather than Dimensional Weight. The San Francisco Benches and Plantation Benches are shipped preassembled, since curved sections are hard for end consumers to assemble easily.
F) SPECIAL CONSTRUCTION FOR TABLE TOPS. All GOLDENTEAKTM brand Tables have fingerjointed construction at the joints. This produces a more solid Table Top, and is considered the best practice for Table Top construction.
