Teak is utilized in outdoor applications where strength and durability is of essence.
The reason teak is so desired for outdoor application is that teak possesses rich natural oils, preventing the wood from drying out, which in return prevents the wood from cracking and splitting. Teak is at the same time extremely stable (no warping or twisting), making it bar none the absolute superior raw material for making wooden garden furniture.

What is SVLK and V-legal Document?
SVLK stands for Sistem Verifikasi Legalitas Kayu, or Timber Legality Assurance System in English. It is designed to check the legality of timber from forest through to the point of export using independent auditors.
An SVLK (TLAS) license guarantees that the Operator/timber industry has complied with legality standards and criteria. Companies that comply with the SVLK need to attach a V-Legal Document to their shipments for export. The V-Legal Document specifies that the timber products being shipped comply with the legality standard as stipulated in the Indonesian regulation. Thus the V-Legal Document provides assurance that the timber and timber product is legal. V-legal Documents are issued by Conformity Assessment Body (Or “LVLK” in Indonesian) as for SVLK certificates.
