For the OCQ editions »White« and »Grey« we have selected especially weather resistant materials that are very easy to clean and maintain.
The HPL (High Pressure Laminate) we employ has originally been developed for facade cladding. This application of the material necessarily requires durability and enduring immaculate appearance. No wonder, then, that HPL was soon discovered for the design of outdoor furniture. The raw material with high paper fiber content is pressed under high pressure. The result is a material with high density; which barely absorbs moisture.
Thus, the material does not swell and does not burst in case of frost. Due to the high proportion of paper fibers HPL is not a synthetic material.
Among the special properties of the HPL surface is its resistance to scratching, heat, sunlight, water, acids, fats, solvents and largely to chemicals, which makes it so easy to clean and to maintain. Simply perfect for use in a garden kitchen! You can quickly get rid of pollen, leaves, verdigris etc. by washing it off with a high-pressure cleaner. The open, airy design of our garden kitchen ensures that air can circulate and moisture can always dry off.
