CARE AND MAINTENANCE OF LEATHER
As a natural product, leather is very durable and hardwearing, but all leather products require cleaning and protection. By following these instructions, you will ensure a long and lasting leather quality.
Never place leather furniture closer than 20-30 cm to a radiator or in direct sunlight.
Cleaning removes everyday dirt and stains from your leather. Without proper cleaning the leather will over a period of time leave grease spots or discoloration’s. To avoid this, clean with Soft Cleaner on a regular basis. We advise once a month.
Protect your leather to guarantee that the original quality of the leather will be maintained.
Use Leather Protection Cream, we advise 2-4 times a year. This will protect against spots and preserve the leathers softness.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE OF FABRIC
Regular light vacuuming. Occasional cleaning should be done with a reputable brand of upholstery shampoo following the manufacturer’s instructions
MAINTENANCE OF MOVING PARTS
Glide parts of the chair can be lubricated with a silicone-based lubricant. If the chair is on a deck rail, it is important that the deck rails railway is NOT lubricated.

CABLING OF EXTRA EQUIPMENT IN ARMRESTS
The diagram below shows how to cable the wires thru the chair and column.
Receiving the chair prepped for additional equipment in the armrests, the wiring of your equipment should follow these steps.
- Release the hand wheel (pos 1) holding the equipment holder in place.
- Mount your equipment, making sure the cable is going thru the pipe.
- Pull the cables out from underneath the arm rest (pos 2), open the zipper to gain access.
- Use a flexible cable channel (pos 3) to secure the cables going from the armrest all the way to the column top. Leave enough play for chair adjustments.
- Either use existing holes underneath the square top of the column (pos 6) or drill new holes corresponding with the size of the cables / cable channel (pos 5).
- Place the cables thru the column top. Make sure to have enough play of the cables to compensate adjustments of the seat, swivel (see # 10) and height (pos 4).
- Find a suitable place to strip tight the cables (pos 8).
- The cable is connected to further wiring solutions from under the pedestal. If mounted on a deck rail, please view the deck rails user manual for further info.
- If needed, you may drill a hole in the pedestal for extraction of the cable and pull the cables through a designated hole in the lower part of the column. (pos 9)
- To avoid breakage of cables/wires within the column, a 360° swivel restriction needs to be applied. Place an B415-M8x16 bolt (pos 10) with a B480-M8 washer.
