The Clapham picnic table and bench set is manufactured from 250 mm x 125 mm wide green oak sleepers. It’s sturdy and rustic appearance makes it ideally suited for restaurant, parks and most outdoor environments. A centre parasol aperture can be provided if required. The Clapham can also be surface or root fixed whilst the table and seats can be purchased separately.
The term ‘green oak’ is applied to timber that is typically freshly sawn from relatively newly felled trees. It is timber that has not been through a process of natural or mechanical drying. Natural dried oak has been seasoned for up to five years and mechanically dried oak, often seen as kiln dried, has had the drying out process quickened by the application of heat. These different terms and processes ultimately impact upon the moisture content of the timber. Green Oak is considered to have an average moisture content of 30% and so is subject to a little movement as it seasons in situ.
As the Oak naturally dries out and settles in its new environment splits & checks will appear but not in any way compromise the stability of the product.
Optional machine carved inscriptions or engraved metal plaques can enhance this seat simply denoting ownership or make it ideal for presentation, commemorative or memorial purposes.
