Because of its confidence in its expertise and quality control procedures, sifas® offers a 10 year warranty for home use from the date of purchase for all manufacturing defects of the furniture and a 2 year warranty for textile products and surface finishing.
This warranty excludes normal wear and tear and the consequences of any inappropriate treatment, as well as damage by the buyer or third-parties.
Sifas® may choose how to respond to the warranty claim, either by repair or replacement of the involved components. All other claims are excluded.
Sifas® products are designed using among the proven technologies, processes that ensure the best durability in the worst environment for each of the components including the screws, in accordance with our TT* guarantee (UV,sea fog, water-humidity, freezing, natural chemical agents) resulting in simplicity of use and maintenance of the furniture by clients and fulfilling the criterion for long-lasting aesthetic appearance.
Ec-inoks - Kwadra - Kube - Oskar
The self-supporting canvas of the seatings and backs are made of natural hemp fiber Batyline® Canatex, polyester thread coated with polyvinyl. A material which absorbs atmospheric CO2, helping to reduce the greenhouse effect. The fiber surface has been especially treated against UV radiation and is fire-retardant. Hemp fiber is factoryrecyclable.
Kwadra - Kross - Sakura - Transatlantik
Chromed aluminium structures, lacquered and baked at 200°C (392°F). The epoxy powder coating is uniformly applied (80 micron-layer) by means of an electrostatic spray. The micro-balls of powder are attracted to the entire surface of the metal, and become perfectly fixed to the aluminium. While in the oven, they melt and harden, forming an even, and ultra-resistance layer of lacquer. The lacquered finish by sifas® is guaranteed . It is smooth and shiny, or structured-granite look. The process is tested during production to verify the adhesion of the lacquer on the metal using the cross-cut test, which is used in the car industry (ISO 2409 standard).
Hularo® woven fiber
Resin extruded, dope-dyed high-density polyethylene (HDPE) with stable pigments, high resistance to UV, to climatic agents from -30°C (-22°F) to + 65°C (+149°F) with great resistance to traction forces of over 230 kg/cm2. Resists natural chemical agents, salt water and treated swimming pool water. The Hularo® fiber is totally recyclable and guaranteed.
Electro-polished stainless steel
Kocoon - Ec-Inoks - Kolorado - Kube
Although stainless steel has good resistance to corrosion, small spots of rust may appear over time. The protection from corrosion is due to the spontaneous, but slow development of a fine layer of iron oxide. Type 304 stainless (inox) steel, 90 %recyclable used by sifas® underwent 2 essential operations in order to avoid oxidation: chemically sandblasted which considerably increases hardness and resistance of the stainless steel surface, thus reducing its exposure to scratches and aggressions; electro-polishing which, through electrolysis, removes carbon and iron particles from the surface in order to increase the adhesion of chromium and nickel. This produces much better resistance to corrosion, and increases the shine and smoothness of the surface. Sifas® stainless steel finish is guaranteed.
The comfortable mattress wrapped around the aluminium structure is a technological is a very supple and totally resilient material. It comprises a 3-dimensional network of polyester fibres providing a thickness of 30 mm; a honeycomb mesh is added to this network. On the Sakura collection, this mattress may be removed. After a rain shower, this mattress Hydropass® is dry in 15 minutes: the water passes through the network immediately, without retention, without stagnation, without a risk of mould forming. For outdoor use, Hydropass® dispenses with the need to protect the cushions from the weather; you can sit on them at the pool side dripping-wet without sitting in the wetness. It can be cleaned with a water jet set (medium pressure). Sifas® Hydropass® is guaranteed.
Top slats in high density polyethylene (HDPE) dope-dyed with stable pigments. It keeps its appearance and touch of teak, but does not stain, is insensitive to water, resists UV (grade 4/5 –ISO Standard 105-A02). Synteak® can be entirely recycled and helps preserving woods and forests. Sifas® Synteak® is guaranteed.
The shells in the Kocoon collection are made using a technological process which entails cross-link moulding of a thermoset resin - LES polyester - which then coats the glass fibre material that is woven flat for the fine parts, and woven 3-dimensionally (5mm thick) for the zones that undergo high mechanical stress levels. This sandwich in turn is coated with a gel finishing coat in nautical-standard anti-UV polyester that is resistant to chemical and atmospheric agents. This technology used in yachts, boats and racing cars has the advantage of weighing less while providing a highly-resistant mechanical structure with a perfectly smooth surface (air and water are able to penetrate it easily). This composite can be ground for recycling and reused as load for making new plastic items.
Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) is a solid thermoplastic material manufactured through heat-moulding between plates of glass. It has very smooth and silky touch, and is highly resistant to atmospheric agents, corrosion and UV light. Owed to its high density (1.2g/cm3), PMMA features excellent mechanical resistance while retaining some flexibility. All of these physicochemical properties make this material ideal for the original slat system of the Kolorado collection. These slats are heat-curved in the same profile and mounted on to a circle arc*, providing an incomparable level of ergonomic comfort and an outstanding feel, while allowing air and water to pass through the vertical slits of the seat and back. PMMA can be easily recycled.
Materials tested for resistance to environment, sun, water, sea fog, freezing as well as to natural chemical agents.
Textile opaque to light, water proof treated, removable and washable in washing machine at 30°C (86°F).
