Our cast furniture begins with pure 356.2 aluminum ingot directly imported from Australia. We do not use old window frames, soda cans or other sources of used or compromised aluminum because it contains impurities that degrade quality.
Our 304 stainless steel tubing is heavy gauge with thick walls. Other stainless parts are machined from solid stock resulting in furniture of substance. We do not use thin, stamped metal parts.
Giati stainless steel and aluminum furniture is meticulously crafted and finished. Our fabrication incorporates die-casting, machining, welding, mechanical fittings and a great deal of handwork.
The result speaks for itself. Examine the transition from leg to stretcher, feel the smoothness of our handcrafted welds. Compare the consistency of our fit and finish. Turn any piece of Giati furniture up side down and reveal an underside as finished as any top surface.
A significant factor in the cost of metal furniture is the quality of its metal and the amount used. Less metal equals less weight, which equals less cost.
There is a lot of high quality metal in Giati furniture. Feel the difference.
Our teak is plantation grown in Indonesia. It does not come from rain forests. Teak is not indigenous to Indonesia. It was likely introduced into Java in the fourteenth century, although some reports suggest that it may have been introduced as early as the seventh century.
Present day Indonesian teak plantations were established in semi-arid regions of central Java about 150 years ago by Dutch settlers.
Giati teakwood is a renewable, sustainable resource.
Our EcoTeak™ is absolutely unsurpassed in quality. It is carefully sawn, graded, surfaced and painstakingly re-graded. Only the finest, oil rich, defect free heartwood is selected for our use. Giati teak is then slowly kiln dried, aged and then re-acclimated for maximum stability and longevity.
We pay more for our teakwood.
