Castra Concrete Dining Table - 220cm
A new and exciting addition to our range for 2019.
Our customers have certainly brought Polished Concrete Furniture 'to the fore' over the past four years and with this in mind we wanted to provide a bigger concrete table range so, please welcome 'The Castra'.
Available in two new sizes; 220 cm and 300 cm, to cater for those larger dining parties, we think this is going to be a popular choice.
*Fibre reinforced polished concrete top - sturdy & durable
*Pre-treated all weather exterior
*Acacia (hard wood) lime washed wooden frame
*Low maintenance with easy clean surface
* A cantilever parasol would be required with this table
Our concrete range is made from water, sand, cement and Jute. Some items are then re-enforced with a metal grid. Our concrete range is delivered with a pre-treatment – this will need reapplying - it doesn’t last forever!
The concrete surface has not been designed to be smooth or flat. Micro-bubbles and indentations occur where the concrete has been removed from the mould. This is not a fault in the table - it is a natural characteristic of concrete.
Concrete is pretty robust, but it is prone to cracks and chips - it can react to its environment or it can be damaged by an impact of some sort. It is important to stress that cracks do not affect its durability they simply add character to the table. If character is not what you are after – you can carry out simple repairs by using fast drying cement and sanding with a fine sandpaper. The repair will be visible, but it will blend into the mottled appearance of the surface over time, especially with the re-application of our wax treatment.
The concrete surface, over time, will change in its appearance – this makes the product unique to you and your way of life. Bumps and chips are part of its charm.
Concrete is porous and liquid can soak into the surface so ensure you wipe up any spillages immediately, but with regular waxing, (approximately three times a year, or more if desired) this will help to keep your table sealed. We can provide a wax for this purpose, see our Concrete Furniture Wax or we suggest using a good quality car wax for this job.
