The design idea

The sun is shining, there isn’t a breath of wind. Our Zambezi Teak Sun Lounger is perfect for enjoying such good weather. Made with wide strips of timber, it can be raised at the front, adding to its comfort.

The practical design goes beyond the end use of enjoying the sun, but provides an easy way to move the lounger. Carved handles and wheels attached to one end allow you to follow the sun, while the expansion mortice and tennon joints bring durability to the product.

Using a material as hard and sustainable as Zambezi Teak, any weakness found in the design would have to be man made. With this in mind, the over-compensation underlying the elegant design ensures life-long lounging support and comfort to the buyer. The wood has the added benefit of being too dense for insects or wood-pests to burrow into. These wooden pool loungers best retain their polished sheen when oiled every few months.

Our alternative product is the Wrought Iron Sun Lounger

About Zambezi Teak

Zambezi Teak, formerly known as Rhodesian Teak, is one of the hardest and most durable timbers in the world. In 1952 a worldwide enquiry was instituted that explored every possible timber to find the most suitable material for making the floors of the London Corn Exchange.  It had to be of particular hardness and durability because of the heavy use to which it would be put.  It also had to withstand the damaging effect of the corn kernels ground underfoot.  After much deliberation, a decision was reached to make the floors out of Zambezi Teak. It was quite simply the toughest timber in the world to make the floors from.

At The African Touch we build with timber harvested from natural forests. The charm of this material is that no two pieces are exactly the same in colour, character or grain, and they will contain natural imperfections such as knots, stress cracks and so on that enhance their authenticity and attractiveness.

Solid wood naturally oxidises and darkens with age. Zambezi teak in particular will change from a beautiful light honey brown to a darker rich red brown on exposure to light. This is a natural process so the product you receive will certainly change colour with time and may not look exactly the same as products in brochures or on our web sites.

We give a 1 year warranty against construction and material flaws for your Zambezi Teak Sun Lounger. Naturally, any miss handling or inappropriate use of the product will invalidate the warranty. The African Touch will not in any circumstances be liable for any claim which falls outside the scope of our warranty or for any consequential damages whatsoever.

For large orders we offer discounts. Please enquire with our sales staff what discounts are available.
