A truly unique material.
Teak is extremely dense-grained and incredibly high in natural oil that acts as a long-lasting preservative to prevent rot, warping, shrinking, swelling, as well as splintering ... and without the periodic sealing that other woods require. The oils in teak even act as a natural insect repellent, giving the wood a high resistance to termites.
Handsome patina.
Durability aside, one of teak's most enduring features is the unique silvery-gray patina that develops after six to nine months of exposure to the elements. It takes on a quality, classical look that seems to say, "I'm the best that money can buy, and I'm going to last for a long time!" (If that sounds like bragging, remember it's not bragging when it can deliver.)
Environmentally sound.
Teak does not grow in the rain forests. Ours comes exclusively from "controlled-growth" plantations in the dry, hilly terrain of Indonesia and southeast Asia. The trees are harvested after 50 to 60 years of growth and are replenished by annual plantings.
Wind release system
When extended, each ShadeTree® canopy section is held in place by a patented, spring-loaded "wind release" mechanism. If left unattended and heavy winds come up, the mechanism releases the canopy, allowing it to move freely in the tracks to reduce risk of damage.
