Is this teak? No... it is Ipe!
Find out what Jensen Leisure Furniture has to say about the quality & durability of Ipe below:
Ipe (pronounced “EE-pay”) has been known in Europe as a premium furniture, outdoor decking, and flooring wood for more than 200 years.
Ipé and Roble trees are at least 100 years old when they are harvested. The age and large diameter of the logs allow Jensen to manufacture its furniture with 100% solid heartwood.
Only the heartwood portion of the tree is structurally stable and naturally resists swelling and contraction caused during seasonal changes in outdoor environments.
A strikingly beautiful chocolate brown timber that weathers to a silver patina.
Many historic buildings and bridges in Europe contain Ipé decking and flooring. Here in the US, the historic Atlantic City Boardwalk is constructed of 100% Ipe, as are
New York City park benches.
Care & Maintenance
Ipe Aftercare Kit – Clean with Brightener as shown in our website video to repare timber for Penofin Verde OR clean wood with mild dish soap and water.
Be certain to allow wood to dry completely
Apply Penofin Verde paying close attention to following all of the directions on the can. Wipe any excess of with smooth rag. For best result once wood is completely dry, apply a second coat. Wipe off excess second time.
WOOD SHIELD is highly recommended as final step. The light, clear solution operates to protect the tabletop and seating arms from water and food stains.
After the above, you will only need to apply Penofin Verde on clean surfaces as needed.
OPTIONAL- WOOD CLEANER- This product can be purchased for deeper cleaning issues in lieu of Brightener or mild dish soap.
All wood is a natural material subject to changes in the environment. The look and feel of natural wood is part of the appeal of owning wood garden furniture. Although Ipe is naturally stable, small checks in the wood surface may appear if the furniture is placed in dry or sunny environments. Superficial checking in no way affects the structural integrity and longevity of your furniture. In full sun, Ipe will naturally- weather to a silver gray.
