It’s all in the details
The Akula process of design, manufacture, testing, delivery and review is managed, assessed and controlled continually to ensure quality and consistency. Our extensive testing process, which includes salt fog exposure, UV radiation and sunlight testing as well as stress testing, ensures our bespoke hotel seating products are designed to perform.
Our salt fog exposure testing, simulate years of exposure while our stress testing replicates more than 50,000 sitting motions at a speed of 15 per minute as well as 100kg/220lbs load testing on the seat base and 25kg/55lbs on the seat back. In addition to this, 25kg/55lbs weights are repeatedly dropped on the seat and back from a height of 1 metre to simulate heavy use, over a prolonged period.
Marine-grade outdoor furniture is prone to a number of issues that affect its resilience – be it unravelling or snagging of wicker or damage to fabrics and finishes from the elements. The Akula team of designers and manufacturers work hard to ensure this does not happen.
Our choice of finishes is always mindful of these issues and our design team is constantly carrying out research and development to improve design and functionality.
