In order to ensure your outdoor table a long life and continued playing appeal, we recommend that you follow the simple instructions below:
Cover your table
Always cover your table when you are not using it to protect it from rain and from the UV rays which are harmful to the table and will reduce its life.
Please note that although this is a weatherproof table and constructed using materials designed for the outdoors, the cover gives the table significant additional protection and its use is required in order for the warranty to be valid.
A cover specifically designed by Garlando and made from showerproof material is supplied as a standard or optional equipment.
As an alternative, you can use a tarp or any showerproof cover making sure that it is well fixed so that the wind cannot lift it to allow the rain getting through.
Maintenance for bars and bearings
To keep roller bearings in good conditions making sure that bars glide adequately we suggest to frequently spray bars using a silicone spray such as the WD40. You can also consider our spray Slidy - available among our Accessories - which has a protective and lubricationg double action.
Please be careful not to use any vegetal or any other type of grease or you run the risk of attracting dirt and clogging the roller bearings. Keep them clean.
Clean your table periodically by rubbing its surfaces with a damp cloth to eliminate dust and other dirt residual.
For a deeper cleaning you can use any household detergent which does not contain wax or abrasives, having care to completely take it off.
Do not use any solvent or detergents containing ammonia, acetone, petrol etc, that could damage the colours, particularly those of the cabinet.
Do not flood the table.
Extra tips for sea areas
If your table is kept in a sea area, to protect the bars from the salinity corroding action, we suggest to clean the bars using a damp cloth and then frequently spray them with Slidy. Do not spray the bars before cleaning them.
In case of snow
The table should not stand in snow for protracted periods. If you can, store it under a portico or a veranda or bring it inside to enjoy it all the winter long.
