What materials for its outdoor shower?

The most conventional shower is wood, including exotic woods such as teak or iroko: these naturally rot-proof timber is well suited for outdoor use. Wood, the shower will intoxicate with time unless you clean it two or three times a year with a colorless saturator to extend its original appearance. Some manufacturers such as Trade-Winds have chosen to french wood, like the locust "for environmental reasons, many people now refuse Tropical Timber. For our showers, we therefore prefer pedestals locust, a very durable wood even if it has not the desired look of teak ".

But there are metal and metal, said Christine Auclair: "Some of our showers are in brushed stainless steel, marine grade (316L) In the seaside regions, the quality of the stainless steel is important because the structures must resist. corrosion that causes the marine environment. We also offer models coated galvanized steel. the powder coating (surface treatment one that protects against corrosion and ensures good stability over time) facilitates maintenance, for an extremely durable product and which can be declined in many colors. Finally, zinc showers are also powder-coated for weather resistant and corrosion".
