Arbour Assembly Instructions:

Tried and Tested Coatings
AFK Garden products are finished with a high quality two-product finishing system designed specifically for the substrates used in their manufacture. The softwood timber is given enhanced protection against sunlight, knot discolouration and moisture ingress through a primer/topcoat combination developed at Sherwin-Williams exterior R&D laboratories in Italy and Sweden. These waterbased coatings are low environmental impact products, therefore solvent emissions are reduced by 95% compared to solvent based systems.

Using the latest robotic spray application AFK ensure that these high performing products are applied to controlled production specifications, ensuring consistent, repeatable product quality everytime. With coatings for wood from Sherwin-Williams global wood finishing range, AFK’s product portfolio benefits from long lasting and weather resistant coatings that are trusted by manufacturers and developers worldwide. AFK’s full range of products are manufactured using our FSC® certified timber ensuring our material is from responsible and properly managed sources.

FSC® is dedicated to the promotion of responsible forest management worldwide. To learn more, visit

Carbon Footprint
AFK continue to offset our carbon footprint as all waste timber is turned into wood pellets for use as biofuel and all wood shavings are used as animal bedding.

High Quality Hand Crafted Products
Combined traditional construction methods with state of the art machinery, our FSC® certified timber comes from slow grown Scandinavian Redwood, felled within the Arctic circle. With traditional mortise and tenon joints that are also glued and pinned together giving superb strength and a consistent build quality.

Great Design
Improved seat slat end moulding greatly enhances look and finish of seat. A middle support spine strengthens and stabilises the roof. Robust end cardboard packaging reduces damage in transit.

The natural beauty of wood and caring for it
At AFK we source our slow grown FSC® certified Scandinavian Redwood timber from Sweden, a region famed for its timber production. This cold northern region ensures the trees grow slowly giving strength and density to the wood and in turn making the wood less prone to splitting with knots remaining tighter. We take a great deal of effort to ensure our wooden arbours and planters get to you in great condition.

Wood is a natural material and is affected by conditions it is exposed to. Sometimes during the hot summer months splits or cracks may appear. These are not defects but just the wood altering to match the moisture and temperature of its surroundings and as wetter times come will naturally fill in. Knots are natural growth imperfections that gives wood its unique character. Knot discolouration is a yellowish stain that may appear on the surface of the paint. This is the result of sap from the wood bleeding, and their natural resins staining the top coat of paint.

This can happen through hot periods. To overcome this, we use a good quality wood primer with a high content of knotting inhibitor to slow this natural process down. If it does occur sand the effected area back to bare wood and apply a good quality stain blocking primer before repainting.

Finial and Foot Designs
Turned acorn finial and raised chamfered foot give a great contemporary feel to the solid acorn range.

Continued Investment
New Cobot technologies to improve factory efficiency.

Ergonomic Design
Hand crafted, ergonomically designed curved Arbour seat for extra comfort. Designed and tested to give the best possible seating position, fitting to the natural contours of your spine to fully support while you relax.
