Aftercare

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATION

Attention to detail and quality design are hallmarks of Tapley products.  Traditional standards of craftsmanship, solid hardwood timber edges and the world’s finest Oak, American Walnut and Teak veneers combined with mechanical components and fixings of unique design and highest specification.

Tapley 33 can be fixed as easily and securely to modern cavity walls as to traditional brickwork.

 

FINISHES

Tapley 33 is available in Teak, Light Oak, Warm Oak, White, Stone, Canvas, Walnut and Black.

 

GLASS

There are two types of glass finish available:

  1. Option 1 - Standard Clear Glass
  2. Option 2 - Smoked Glass

 

SOURCES OF HARDWOOD

We use both temperature and tropical hardwoods and are, of course, concerned that our sources of timbers should be fully sustained.  Our Oak and American Walnut veneers and solids come from carefully managed forests in North America.  Teak veneers come from Burma, the traditional source, where the government is ensuring that regeneration exceeds extraction.

 

CLEANING

Tapley 33 in Teak, Oak and American Walnut veneers should be kept clean by normal dusting and wiping with a damp cloth though occasional light application of a good quality furniture polish will do no harm.

Teak oil should never be used.

 

MATCHING

Tapley 33 is veneered with real wood from real trees.  Consequently, with all finishes, there is all the variation in colour and graining which is the hallmark of a natural product.  This means that only rarely will there be an each match between pieces of Tapley 33 and perhaps less often between older pieces and new additions.  However, exposure to daylight over a long period alters the colour and after some months both veneers and solid edges will begin to mellow to a more uniform shade.  The dark patches sometimes found on solid teak edges will also fade away.

Even Light Oak is slightly coloured, there can be quite marked variations in shade and, more particularly, in grain pattern.

It must also be appreciated that though the doors and drawers fronts on any one cabinet are through veneered as a numbered set, the separate pieces making up an order cannot be specifically matched.  We do if course  make every effort in both buying and laying veneers to ensure the greatest possible consistency.

 

FLOOR STANDING

All cabinets, plinths and corner fill-in pieces are fitted with adjusters for lining up and levelling.  All hardware i.e. metal clip, to link one cabinet firmly to another, screws for attaching the cabinet to a top, and/or anti-tip forward brackets are packed with every appropriate cabinet.

 

GLASS AND SAFETY

The Tapley Glass Cabinets comply with the latest safety requirements.  The doors are 4mm glass and all glass fronted units must be fitted a minimum of 1 metre from the ground.

The shelves are 5mm in thickness.  The MAXIMUM loading for the units are as follows: -

If a glass door or shelf is chipped or broken order a replacement from your local stockist or replace it with glass of the type described above.  If in doubt about size, type of glass etc consult Beaver and Tapley quoting the model number of your unit.

 

FOR YOUR SAFETY

All wall hung units, in particular the glass cabinets must be fixed to the wall with the appropriate fittings.  Wall constructions vary hugely so please do seek further assistance from your local hardware supplier.

Don’t let very hot or cold items come too near or touch the doors and shelves.

Don’t hit the glass with hard or sharp objects!

Clean the glass with a damp cloth or leather and washing up liquid or soap.  Don’t use washing powders, bath cleaners, etc; they can scratch the glass.  So can diamond engagement rings!  Don’t try to sit or stand on glass shelves!
