The posts that form the rear supports and roof are made in 6 mm plate steel. The front supports are made in 8 mm plate steel. The steel parts are made from zinc-electroplated steel powder-coated in grey 2900 Sablé. The roof is made from Linax-impregnated pine measuring 120×22 mm. The bicycle rack is made from steel plate pipes with wheel holders made in zinc-electroplated solid steel.
Nola's pine is of high quality and comes from sustainable forestry. Pine is an environmentally friendly, domestically produced material. Damaged or untreated pine is quite easily attacked by decomposition processes; therefore, it is particularly important to repair damaged surfaces.
Nola uses high-quality steel with good strength in our products. Steel rusts if left untreated and must therefore be surface treated. This is done through electro-galvanization and powder coating, hot-dip galvanizing, or application of a zinc powder primer.
After traditional impregnation according to NTR AB, the wood is boiled in a hot linseed oil with or without color pigments under vacuum. The oil is penetrated into the surface on all six sides, which reduces moisture absorption in the wood and gives a dimensionally stable product over time. The result is a dried product with good resistance to rot that also has long maintenance intervals. Linax-impregnated furniture is intended for outdoor environments only.
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.
