Oak is a heavy, hard and medium tough wood. Moderately dimensionally stable in case of moisture changes. Oak wood blackens if it is exposed to moisture or wetness for a long time. However, it does not affect the other properties of the wood. Thanks to its hardness and toughness, the oak wood is suitable for furniture and other use in exposed environments.
Nola uses high-quality steel of good strength in our products. Steel rusts if left untreated and must therefore be surface treated. For this we use two main methods for surface treatment of steel parts; electrogalvanizing and powder coating as well as hot-dip galvanizing.
Accoya® wood is the result of more than 80 years of research and development into modifying wood through an acetylation process. Accoya® wood is Radiata pine, a fast-growing wood virtually free of knots that is harvested from renewable FSC-certified forests. Accoya® wood has properties that match or exceed those of tropical woods and the treatment process is non-toxic. The pale wood will turn grey over time and may develop dark spots over time. Accoya® can withstand humid and rainy environments very well and expands/contracts less than other tropical-type woods.
Sioo:x is a wood protection with environmentally friendly silicon technology. Water-based and biocide-free. We use Sioo mainly for our oak furniture. Sioo:x treatment of is suitable for all woods, outside as well as inside, and gives a light surface without pigments. The surface is UV-resistant, water-repellent and non-stick. Active and preventive action against algae, mould and pests. Also rot-proof, wood-strengthening and fire-retardant. This wood protection provides long durability and easy maintenance.
Powder coating is a coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. Unlike conventional liquid paint, powder coating is usually applied electrostatically and then cured under heat or with ultraviolet light. The result is an even, hard-wearing coloured surface with the desired gloss level.
Electrogalvanizing (also known as zinc plating) provides corrosion protection through the sacrifice of zinc ions. It is created via a zinc coating on the steel using an electric current.
