Outdoor furniture purchase
1. Principles of Selection → Choose Tree Species from Solid Wood Material
As long as outdoor furniture has a long service life and is strong and durable, it is enough. The materials of iron art and rattan are relatively single, so it is not difficult to choose, and the requirements for outdoor wooden furniture are strict.
Since different woods are greatly affected by the environment, several principles should be followed when choosing: wood-based panel furniture is not suitable for outdoor use, and is easily deformed by the sun and rain. You should choose solid wood with relatively stable tree species and stable material properties. Generally speaking, softwood is better than hardwood. Furniture made of only solid wood is slightly less durable. In order to obtain a longer service life, outdoor furniture is often a combination of cast iron and wood or a combination of steel pipe and wood.
Second, maintenance method → outdoor furniture also needs careful maintenance
As long as the furniture is placed outdoors, there are two general maintenance principles: the first is to avoid wind and sun as much as possible, and the second is to avoid artificial damage to the surface of the furniture.
Separately, the surface of iron furniture is basically electroplated or oxidized. The material itself has relatively strong mechanical properties and is not easy to wear, so it is widely used. When selecting, it should be noted that the anti-rust treatment must be in place, and the protective oxide layer on the surface of iron furniture is very easy to wear. When using it, try to avoid bumping the surface of the furniture. The surface of solid wood furniture will be treated with wax or paint, anti-corrosion treatment, and do not use strong acids and alkalis when scrubbing while avoiding human damage, so as not to damage the paint film. As for the rattan, the durability of the material is the worst, so make full use of its lightness and put it away when not in use, otherwise the service life will be very short.
3. Guarantee of rights and interests → There is no industry standard for outdoor furniture
As there is no strict industry standard for outdoor furniture, the contract must reflect the technical requirements, use time, shelf life, paint time, coating shelf life, etc. of the product. Only the technical standards are reflected in the contract documents and disputes arise. It is easy to handle, and relevant departments can appraise the product according to technical requirements. Because it is difficult to simulate the use of furniture in the outdoor natural environment and the various wear and corrosion it has to withstand, there is currently no unified technical standard. However, as the market for outdoor furniture products becomes larger and larger, the country has And related departments should issue quality standards applicable to products.
