Nola's pine is of high quality and comes from sustainable forestry. Pine is an environmentally friendly, domestically produced material. Damaged or untreated pine is quite easily attacked by decomposition processes; therefore, it is particularly important to repair damaged surfaces.
Mahogany - FSC-certified
FSC-marked mahogany is a wood with good durability in the outdoor environment. In addition, it retains its color tone better than, for example, oak and teak. Mahogany lives and moves, sometimes more than teak.
Teak - FSC-certified
FSC-labeled teak is exceptionally durable in an outdoor environment. Teak has a high content of silicon and tannic acids, which makes it quite expensive to process. If you want to keep the reddish-brown luster, you should oil the wood several times during a season, otherwise it turns gray quickly.
Oak is a heavy, hard and medium tough wood. Moderately dimensionally stable in case of moisture changes. Oak wood blackens if it is exposed to moisture or wetness for a long time. However, it does not affect the other properties of the wood. Thanks to its hardness and toughness, the oak wood is suitable for furniture and other use in exposed environments.
Wood oil provides good protection against the stresses of the outdoor climate and at the same time highlights the wood's natural appearance and properties.
Varnishing of wood is done with a water-based varnish. A water-based paint that is kinder to the environment. Under normal use, the paint has a good wear resistance and long durability.
Nola uses high-quality steel with good strength in our products. Steel rusts if left untreated and must therefore be surface treated. This is done through electro-galvanization and powder coating, hot-dip galvanizing, or application of a zinc powder primer.
Electrogalvanizing (also known as zinc plating) provides corrosion protection through the sacrifice of zinc ions. It is created via a zinc coating on the steel using an electric current.
Powder coating is a coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. Unlike conventional liquid paint, powder coating is usually applied electrostatically and then cured under heat or with ultraviolet light. The result is an even, hard-wearing coloured surface with the desired gloss level.
Compact laminate is a sheet material made of kraft paper and phenolic resins, pressed together under heat and extreme pressure. The material is completely water resistant.
