PROPER USAGE AND MAINTENANCE
Proper usage and maintenance is vital for getting the most out of the valuable resources we have. Our designs are made to last for generations, but just like everything else, they need a little care to get there.
POWDER COATED ALUMINUM
Powder coating is a high-quality and dry finishing process which makes it possible to create a thicker and more streamlined surface than with conventional liquid paint. The coating is applied on the super light-weight aluminum in order to reduce the risk of impact from moisture, UV, scratches and corrosion.
Use a soft brush with soapy water and wipe with a dry cloth. Note: Do not use abrasive pads or abrasive cleaning agents as this may harm the surface.
Although sturdy and resistant, powder coated aluminum is not invincible, be careful not to make scratches in the surface as it will make the material vulnerable to corrosion.
The product is usable in all types of wind and weather, all year round. However, during wintertime, it is advisable to store the furniture in an unheated room such as a garage or cellar.
Agora Panama is Oeko-Tex certified and solution-dyed acrylic fabrics used for upholstering our cushions and pillows. The acrylic fibre we use is a synthetic but cotton-like fabric with world-class features for outdoor usage, making it:
- Extremely colour and lightfast
- Water and dirt repellent
- Free from harmful substances
Wipe the fabric with a firmly wrung cloth. In case of more obstinate stains, remove the upholstery and machine wash it at 30° C. If the upholstery is not removable, the textile must only be washed with a wrung cloth.
QUICKDRY OUTDOOR FOAM
Quickdry Outdoor Foam has an open cell structure which allows both water and air to pass through freely. This makes the cushion dry exceptionally quickly – even after being soaking wet – with little to no need of maintenance. Moreover, the foam provides a firm and comfortable texture which remains the same year after year.
If the cushion is exposed to heavy rain, we recommend placing the cushions upright for quick drainage. Soon after, the cushion will be dry and the cushion can be used again.
