MATERIAL

Our manufacturing meets strict quality requirements, and the materials used in our manufacturing comply with all technical requirements and European legislation.

WOOD

We only use wood from farms engaged in a process of forest valuation and sustainable management (PEFC). Farms that ensure the identification of timber in successive stages (FCS), ensuring sustainable forest management.

 The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC)

It is an international, non-profit, non-governmental organization which promotes sustainable forest management through independent third party certification. It is considered the certification system of choice for small forest owners. PEFC is the first forest certification system in terms of certified forest area and the world’s first source of certified wood.

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)

It is an international non-profit, multi-stakeholder organization established to promote responsible management of the world’s forests. 

The FSC does this by setting standards on forest products, along with certifying and labeling them as eco-friendly.

The autoclave wood (meeting all European standards) is a wood that has undergone a deep treatment in order to be protected from biological aggressions responsible for the deterioration of the material. Five classes of employment (NF EN 335) have been defined.

Our most used woods are:

  •  Flanders pine autoclave – class 4
  •  Natural larch
  •  Tropical woods
  •  Composite wood
  •  Laminated wood: Pines, Acacia, Oak … The glues used comply with all European standards of non-contamination.

 Superior protection option and stained wood: On request we can apply extra protection on the wood against UV discoloration and fungal attack. This protection is respectful with the environment. The ingredients are natural, VOC-free, and it’s based on a molecular reaction with the wood fibers. It is available in several finishing tones or even transparent.

STEEL

The Steel, a material made to withstand the important demands of our public spaces, has a great aesthetic versatility because of the diversity of colors that can be attributed to it and the flexibility of shapes and combinations with other materials.

Solid, durable and customizable, FREPAT’s steel furniture makes it possible to meet the diverse needs of architects, landscapers, designers, and above all, current users.

CORTEN STEEL

Its strength and aesthetic characteristics make this steel more and more used by architects and designers. It is a wear-resistant steel by the formation of a self-protective layer of oxides on the base metal. The protective patina of the surface is regenerated continuously under the influence of atmospheric conditions.

Raw finished: The products delivered in raw Corten look like gray steel sheet. The characteristic Corten patina naturally forms in the open air and is stabilized over time.

Shot-blast and oxidized finished: Steel undergoes an accelerated oxidation process. The appearance on delivery is already rusty.

 Shot-blasted, oxidized and stabilized finished: Corten steel with a rusty appearance is artificially stabilized to avoid the risk of soiling in the early stages.

 AISI 316L or 304 Stainless Steel

They are alloy steels of iron and carbon with chromium which causes the formation of a protective layer of chromium oxide which gives these steels their stainlessness. The finishes are brushed stainless steel, satin or matte.

Galvanized Steel

Galvanizing is a protective treatment for steel against corrosion.

Painted Finish: Once the steel is galvanized, it can be painted. We work with high quality polyester paints that are powder coated. This finish is very resistant to UV. On request, you can choose the color of your furniture according to the RAL available for outdoor. You can choose an appearance painting that looks like Corten. Slate blue, black and Corten are the most resistant colors.

All products and paints used by us are listed and certified according to European standards.
