Upon arrival of hardwood slat furniture, wipe the slats with a cloth to remove any excess oil. It is recommended to re-finish the hardwood slats every 3-6 months to preserve the hardwood and keep it looking new for longer. This is to prevent the elements from ruining the surface of the furniture slats and are drying out the hardwood itself.
For refurbishing timber slats purchased from Astra, we recommend the timber protection oil CUTEK CD50 (available from most paint, timber and hardware stores). To view an in-depth guide on furniture care and maintenance, refer to the furniture spec sheet here.
A seamless timber look with very low maintenance can be achieved through choosing furniture pieces made with our Wood Grain Aluminium slats. These slats start as aluminium and are then produced using a double powder coated system with the finished wood grain product being Red Wood Cedar.
This allows the slat to be a wood-like aluminium material achieving the same warm, wooden tones and colours that are seen in real timber products yet with a lot less maintenance compared to real timber.
Yes, Enviroslat Walnut (Composite) is an extruded timber replacement that is made from a mix of plastic (recycled and virgin) and reclaimed cellulose fibre (wood sawdust / rice husk).
Against the harsh Australian elements, the Enviroslat composite has a low moisture absorption rate, rot and termite proof and not excessively hot in the sun due to the combination of wood and plastic properties.
One of the main advantages of aluminium furniture is that it does not rust. This is perfect for landscapes near the beach where it will be exposed to salty or moist outdoor air.
Aluminium is also a lightweight furniture option, where it can be moved around wherever necessary without any issues.
There is minimal maintenance required for aluminium furniture in comparison to timber. There requires very little upkeep in order for aluminium to maintain its impressive aesthetics.
They are great value for money! Aluminium seats, benches and table settings are an affordable furniture alternative when functionality and appeal is required whilst not breaking the bank!
No, additional liners are not required for Astra bins. A plastic liner comes complementary with all Astra bins which is easy to remove, making cleaning of the bin and liner a stress free task for the grounds and maintenance departments.
The easiest way to keep birds out of bins is to ensure the bin is fitted with a covered or enclosed top. The best Athens Bin Enclosure covered top to keep birds away is the cube cover as it reduces the space in which birds will have access to the rubbish.
Covered top litter bins and bin enclosures are also effective in ensuring that rubbish doesn’t fly out of the litter bin or wheelie bin enclosure.
