Care and Maintenance Advice

by dev |November 10, 2016 |0 Comments | Article

Table Tops and Chairs

Our polished or laminate surfaces do not require spray cleaners or wax polishes. To clean, wipe the surface or frame with a damp cloth and buff off with a dry duster. Polished surfaces are heat resistant but must be protected from direct heat using a mat.

Aluminium Tables and Chairs

Use warm soapy water as required to clean all aluminium surfaces, drying off with a clean cloth. Never use abrasive substances or cleaning materials. If leaving tables outside ensure any rainwater collection is tipped off the table top surface as quickly as possible.


Upholstery covers normally respond to a damp cloth provided stains are treated quickly.

Dependant on the construction of a fabric, different cleaning methods will apply. Proprietary cleaners should be first tested on a non-visible area to ensure that it does not damage the cloth. Check with the supplier or our sales office if uncertain.


Marble is a natural product and therefore porous. Spillages will stain. We recommend that it is wiped clean often. A good quality wax polish applied to the surface will help repel stains.

Teak Tables and Chairs

Teak oil should be applied on a regular basis. Do not clean with proprietary cleaners.


Only the cord must be used to open the parasols. You may need to assist this with some gentle outward movement of the struts. To try to open the parasol by pulling the struts outward will result in breaking the parasol.

The cord must be used to gently lower the parasol and close it. It is important to ensure all of the fabric is outside the struts and not trapped between any of the struts.

It is strongly recommended that the parasol is closed in high winds, otherwise damage can happen to both the parasol and the weighted base.


No responsibility will be accepted by Satelliet-UK relating to breakages or damage caused by non-observance of the above points.
