Here are some of our most frequently asked questions. Please give us a call if you can’t find the answer you are looking for.

What are the benefits of our outdoor teak benches and seats?

Renowned for its exceptional durability, teak garden furniture owes its longevity to the hardness and natural oils inherent in teak wood. This quality makes it an ideal choice for outdoor furniture, capable of withstanding diverse weather conditions and lasting for years. The natural oils in teak impart a beautiful, enduring golden brown hue that slowly turns to a soft silver grey in sunlight.

Can teak wood crack?

Teak, being hygroscopic, may develop minor splits or cracks, called checks or end-grain checking, due to fluctuations in humidity and temperature. This natural occurrence is more prevalent in denser sections and at the end grain, contributing to the weathered patina. Despite this, teak remains exceptionally robust, and this typically does not compromise the structural stability of your furniture.

Will my bench develop a patina over time?

When left untreated, teak will develop a soft silver patina over time; regular annual cleaning helps maintain this appearance. To preserve the original teak colour, applying teak oil can be used but is unnecessary to prolong its lifespan.

Can I leave the teak bench outside all year round?

Yes, you can leave teak furniture outside, 12 months of the year. Teak wood is renowned for its remarkable durability and water repellence. Despite being porous, it is naturally high in protective oils, which makes it resistant to moisture, rot, warping, and splitting. However, compared to furniture used solely in the spring and summer, teak may accumulate more dirt and necessitate additional cleaning and maintenance.

How long will my teak bench last?

Teak is an exceptionally durable hardwood and is highly resistant to the elements. Our teak garden and park seats and benches can endure for over 20 years with minimal maintenance requirements. In fact, the teak lumber these benches are made from can withstand decades outdoors and remain in excellent condition.

How are the benches secured to the ground?

The teak benches are versatile, suitable for either hard or soft ground and can be secured using ground fixing kits.

Why are we called Earth Anchors

Legacy! The name Earth Anchors has stuck since the company’s inception because we use to solely design and make ground fixing anchors. These were primarily used by BT to hold down their telegraph poles using a cable tension system. We still sell anchors, but smaller ones for fixing down picnic tables, bins, benches and the occasional guide wire for a tree or mast.

How long does it take to make a Memorial Plaque?

All of out memorial plaques now only take several days to make. Even the cast aluminium and cast bronze can be with you in as little as 10 days.

Or, you can drop us an email and we will send you a quotation and a mock-up of how it will look.

Caring for a Memorial Plaque

The cast bronze, aluminium and stainless-steel memorial plaques are maintenance free. Obviously, dirt may need periodically cleaning off. But otherwise they require nothing more. Brass plaques unfortunately will need frequent polishing to keep them looking fresh and bright using the appropriate cleaner.

How are the Plaques Delivered

If ordered with another piece of furniture from Earth Anchors, we will assume your memorial plaque is to be attached to that item but will always call to confirm. It will therefore be delivered to at the same time and on a pallet. If ordered on its own, plaques take between 5-10days to arrive via a courier.

Fixing methods

All our memorial plaques are supplied with screws. Allowing you to surface mount your plaque to a wall, bench, table, planter, or grave headstone. Thicker plaques are recessed in. we can recess in the thinner plaques but must be requested.

What size commemorative plaques do we offer?

The prices shown are for plaques 150 x 50mm. This is our most common size and will accommodate for approximately 60 characters. Don’t feel limited to this size as we can do nearly any size up to 400mm square. Here are some of the recent size memorial plaques we’ve undertaken; 70 x 30mm, 100 x 50mm, 150 x 65mm, 200 x 50mm,  200 x 150mm, 300 x 300mm, 300 x 400mm.

Portrait or Landscape Interpretation Panel?

Your outdoor lectern or interpretation board can be either landscape or portrait. It doesn’t change the price. Just let us know which layout you require when ordering.

Can you create the artwork for us?

Yes, we offer an in-house design service to transform your text and imagery in to stunning layouts.

Is the artwork interchangeable?

Yes. The printed artwork is changeable on all our outdoor lecterns and interpretation boards. But if you plan on changing it frequently, we recommend using the aluminium lectern, as its design allows for a quick and easy swap.

What’s the artwork printed on?

Our interpretation display panels are a 3mm solid piece of aluminium. We use solid aluminium instead of aluminium composite board, because it needs pass through an industrial oven at 200℃ without distorting or melting to bake the printed artwork on and add the scratch resistant coating.

Do your outdoor lecterns have perspex covers?

No. Unfortunately the Perspex cover is likely to trap condensation. Instead, we use toughened prints which have a clear plastic coating baked over the artwork for the scratch resistance and to bring out the print colours.

What’s the difference between an outdoor lectern and an interpretation board?

The phrase “outdoor lectern” and “outdoor interpretation board” are quite interchangeable and are similar items. They both contain a printed display with information about the local area. However, a lectern display contains the artwork at an angle of 45 degrees so that you can look over it while reading. Whereas the interpretation board can be at 45 degrees or vertical on posts or a wall.

Also, when we refer to an “interpretation panel”, we are talking about the printed artwork only.

Can I buy an outdoor lectern or interpretation board without artwork

Yes, in this instance we recommend requesting a quotation for the lectern as there will be a small saving in the purchase cost.

Alternatively our seats can be used with a FastDek base as a substitute for a concrete pad.

What colours can we have?

We have a selection of standard colours for out steel seats and benches which are available at no extra cost. For something more bespoke you can choose from one of the 200 different colours found in the RAL Classic colour range.

Are armrests available?

Our Forest-Saver, Parklane and Frigate seat can have up to 4 armrests. If you order a seat with two armrests, they are fitted one at either end, unless otherwise requested.

How are the anchors different to spiral ground anchor?

Unlike a spiral ground anchor ours are non-removable once in the ground and have a much higher pull out strength. This is because the barb (which holds it down) is at the tip of the anchor approx. 50cm below ground, where the soil is heavily compacted.

What is the difference between the EA1 & EA2 Kit

Our EA2 kit is the starter kit which comes with a set of reusable installation tools. You will only need a single EA2 kit and from there you can install multiple EA1 Kits.

The tools allow you to hammer the anchor in to the ground without damaging the top of the anchor or accidently driving out the fluke too early.

You will still need a hammer and screwdriver to fit these kits.

Can a ground fixing kit be used on a competitors product?

Of course! Its imperative that all outdoor furniture in public spaces is safely fixing to the ground to prevent it from theft, accidental tipping or unwanted repositioning.

For timber and plastic furniture our EA1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7 & 8 are suitable depending on the ground type. For cast iron and steel seats our EA6 kit has a plate that can be drilled to match non Earth Anchors products and bolted on.
