All of our pieces are welded on a 3-D Demmeler welding table from Germany. This table is machined to very tight tolerances (within 0.0004 inches per foot) to ensure stability and flatness. The end result is furniture that is perfectly flat and true.
All of the steel tubing we use is 11 gauge. For the 1-inch tubing this is the strongest available, for the 1 ½-inch tubing it is the second strongest available.
All of our pieces are powder coated, a refined finishing technique first used in Australia in 1967. Paint broken down to a powder is applied to our pieces. Then the applied powder is heated (cured) to its melting point, after which it flows to form a smooth film which dries to a firm, durable finish which is very resistant to scratches, cracking, peeling, UV rays and rust. The unique application characteristics of powder coatings provide superior consistency and uniformity of finish without sags, drips, runs, or bubbles. This finish is also suitable for outdoor furniture. Numerous colors are available. .
All pieces come partially sanded unless other finish options are selected.
All open ends are capped, welded shut and sanded smooth.
All pieces come with plastic furniture sliders.
TV stands and entertainment centers come with cord management ties and holders.
Entertainment centers, TV stands, tables and shelves come with glass (unless terrazzo or other top is selected).
All pieces will have the characters “PK” sand-blasted in ¾ inch dimension to authenticate our workmanship.
