Product Options

We offer this product in a choice of four wood finishes: Natural Teak, Dark Stain, Z4 Walnut and Black.

For the Natural Teak finish, the wood is sanded and finished with hard wax oil to bring out the natural, golden-brown colour of the teak.

For the Dark Stain finish, a coat of water-based, teak stain is applied to give the wood a darker teak shade, followed by a coat of a sealer.

For the Z4 Walnut finish, a proprietary one, the wood is hand-stained with a water-based walnut stain and then a coat of a sealer is hand-applied.

For the Black finish, the wood is sprayed with an eco-friendly, water-based paint that leaves the grains and patterns visible.
