Iroko is an African species of tropical hardwood. The high quality allows us to make wide tabletop segments out of one piece of wood. The colour and characteristics of the wood are similar to teak. Our suppliers have their own concession and guarantee to deliver only the best quality Iroko hardwood, with a clear paper trail to guarantee sustainable entrepreneurship.
The quality of Iroko hardwood allows us to make the tabletop segments out of one piece of wood.
We strongly recommend that you treat your wood for indoor use with wood oil to protect it from stains.
Iroko wood requires little or no maintenance. However, we strongly advise you to remove persistent dirt. To clean the wood you can use special products (www.rmc-extremis.com) or simply a stiff bristle brush and some water. Be careful not to irreparably damage the wood fibres. For this reason, never use a high pressure cleaner as this will roughen the wood's smooth surface and irreparably damage the wood's fibres.
At first, the wood will give off this red dye every time it comes into contact with water. The dye that drips onto the frame and the surface will remain water-soluble and will disappear entirely after a while.
ALSO A MATTER OF TASTE ...
When delivered, the wooden parts of our products are untreated
. Exposure to sun and rain will gradually change their colour to silvery grey, and also roughen the surface. If you want to somewhat retain their original colour, you should oil them once a year. We recommend using RMC Hybrid Wood Protector
). RMC products for wood treatment are available all over the world. Visit the website www.rmc-extremis.com

Wood is a living matter and, in spite of the superior quality provided by Iroko, it constantly has to adapt to extreme changes in temperature and humidity. Due to internal stress resulting from these constant adaptations the wood “warps”. This warping can among other things lead to cracking. Colour and structure changes can also appear. These characteristics are typical of the material and by choosing this material you accept them.
