All dimensions and weights shown are to be considered approximate as a majority of the products are manufactured in countries using the metric system; all measurements are converted from metric units.
EMU Group S.p.A and emuamericas, llc reserve the right to make improvements to its product design, and discontinue products or finish colors without prior notice.
Please note that all finishes on our marketing materials and website are approximate due to the variation in color monitors and the processes of photography and printing.
MATERIALS, COLORS AND FINISHES USED
Steel is the main product in the Iron and Steel Industry. EMU uses an alloy of Steel, Carbon Fe37 and with the rich know-how of technological and innovative procedures of surface treatments creates pleasing outdoor products. In the first phase, the material is degreased and covered with a layer of phosphatic micro-crystalline that assists to create a high anti-corrosive performance. The second phase is varnishing with a process of cathode electrodeposition (cataphoresis) which is the most technologically advanced method of protecting the metal for the outdoor elements. This process is done via several dipping tanks with the effect of a continuous electric field assisting in the deposition of a coat of finish. This process we call “e-coat”. The product is then colored by using a polyester powder coat to give its final appearance. EMU products made in steel are 100% recyclable at the end of their life cycle. EMU Steel products are available in a variety of powder coats, these colors can be found in the enclosed price list or on our website. Note that glossy (non-Antique) finishes on solid top tables are subject to greater wear and tear and scratches will occur. The clear coat on the Aluminum finish has shown a tendency to crackle and spider in climates where extreme temperature fluctuations exist. This does not affect the structural integrity of the product, and it is not covered under warranty.
A chemical element that does not exist in a pure state in nature, aluminum is a malleable and ductile metal with strong resistance to corrosion and oxidation, thus used in multiple applications in the production of outdoor furnishings. Our products are designed and fabricated through the careful selection of alloy materials and their chemical composition to produce a product guaranteed for optimal performance.
Our aluminum finishes come in different appearances depending on the product; lacquered, polished or matte. Please refer to our price list or website for each items’ surface details.
The synthetic wicker used in our products consists of either a fiber thread or a metal wire surrounded by thermoplastic polymers. Additives further improve the performance levels of this material, ensuring resistance to weathering, UV light and heat. This material is woven by hand on each item and worked with ancient craft traditions.
We offer several colors of synthetic wicker dependent on the item selected.
Teak is an extremely long lasting hardwood with high oil content and is suitable for outdoor use without the necessity of a sealing treatment. If not treated, the teak material turns into a silver-grey color. This is the natural protection from inside of the wood, which is considered an essential part of teak’s charm; this does not weaken the wood. Please note that if not sealed, the surface is exposed to staining. Since teak is a natural product, it is subject to color variations within the product and we cannot be held responsible. Teak can also crack due to constant changes in weather conditions which is not covered under our warranty.
A load-bearing fabric made by the process of thermal bonding, it is a PVC coated woven yarn. It has resistance to UV rays, atmospheric factors and sudden changes in temperature.
A few different EMU-Tex colors are available.
Our tempered glass is manufactured in compliance to the international standards BS 7376 and complies with the international standard BS 6206.
Each product at its inception is rigorously tested in house and with independent laboratories to assure a high quality outcome and UNI & CEI standards. All of our products are tested with a static weight of 250 lbs over 30,000 cycles to pass the commercial use application. Please contact us if BIFMA testing is required on a product.
Our EMU metal products have been tested for flammability and necessary documentation is available upon request.
