Hygroscopic materials

Wood is a hygroscopic material which means that it will take up or let out moisture depending on the environment it is placed in. YPF uses kiln dried wood however it is important to let wood acclimatise so it reaches the EMS (equilibrium moisture content) of its environment.

After accepting delivery it is the customers responsibility to store the units, doors and panels properly to avoid damage, bowing or splitting of the wood. Battons are fitted on doors, panels and shelves the act as support to prevend bowing. Where these battons have to be subsequently removed, if the item was supplied unfinished or exterior finished only, it will need to be finished immediately in order to avoid bowing.

Tolerance

Given that wood is a hygroscopic material and the handmade manufacturing process please allow up to 2 mm tolerance on finished cabinet/furniture individual unit sizes manufactured.

Items supplied in natural unfinished wood

If items are supplied unfinished or exterior finished only it will be the customers responsibility to paint, stain, lacquer or wax the units immediately in order to avoid splitting, bowing or movement of the wood.

Finishing

All YPF items are supplied in natural wood, YPF offers a finishing service. If items are supplied in natural wood it is the responsibility of the customer to immediately seal the wood by painting, lacquering, varnishing, oiling or waxing. If YPF supplies items with an exterior finish only it is the responsibility of the customer to immediately seal the interior by painting, lacquering, varnishing, oiling or waxing the wood.

Painting, lacquering, waxing or staining

Colours might vary slightly from the colour charts or online images used by the customer.

If a customer requests a finishing quote YPF will quote separately for exterior and interior finishing.

Given that wood is a hygroscopic material items when finished might require remedial work once it has climatised to its new environment. Any site visits to carry out remedial work to finishing, return or redelivery costs will have to be paid for by the customer using YPF’s current price list.
