OW Lee has been designing and manufacturing casual furniture since 1947. Carbon steel, galvanized steel and 6061 aluminum are used for superior strength and rust/corrosion resistance. A full circumference weld is applied wherever metal components intersect, to guard against rust/corrosion. The company uses a five-step wash to create the optimum surface for the final finish. Hand-applied, zinc-rich primer is used to create a protective undercoat, then a top coating of durable polyurethane powder is oven-cured to ensure a long-lasting finish.
