Teak, its Latin name is "Tectona Grandis
Linn". Teakwood or Golden Teak is the king of hardwoods and it's one
of the world's most valuable timbers, recognized for its durability
and stability. Teak is more durable than any other hardwood and has
unparalleled rich beauty. Teak can withstand all types of weather.
Ancient Burmese and Thai royalty considered teak to be a royal tree.
It has been the pillar of the shipbuilding industry for centuries.
The decks of the Titanic were covered in teak, and the wood is as
good today as the day she sank on 1912. Teak is also used in the
Middle East oil industry as one of the very few timbers that can
withstand the punishing heat of the desert and will not readily
catch fire. Teak can withstand harsh chemicals, and is resistant to
fungi, rot and termites. Unlike other woods, teak does not turn
black when in contact with metals. It looks best when applied
transparent and light colors. Teak large deciduous tree of the family
Verbenaceae, or its wood, one of the most valuable timbers. Teak has
been widely used in India for more than 2,000 years. The name teak
is from the Malayalam word tAkka.
The tree has a straight but often buttressed stem (i.e., thickened
at the base), a spreading crown, and four-sided branchlets with
large quadrangular pith. The leaves are opposite or sometimes
whorled in young specimens, about 0.5 meter (1.5 feet) long and 23
cm (9 inches) wide. In shape they resemble those of the tobacco
plant, but their substance is hard and the surface rough. The
branches terminate in many small white flowers in large, erect,
cross-branched panicles. The fruit is a drupe (fleshy, with a stony
seed) 1.7 cm (two-thirds of an inch) in diameter. The bark of the
stem is about 1.3 cm (half an inch) thick, gray or brownish gray,
the sapwood white; the unseasoned heartwood has a pleasant and
strong aromatic fragrance and a beautiful golden yellow color,
which on seasoning darkens into brown, mottled with darker streaks.
The timber retains its aromatic fragrance to a great age.
Native to India, Myanmar (Burma), and Thailand, the tree grows as
far north as about the 25th parallel in most of this area but to the
32nd parallel in the Punjab. The tree is not found near the coast;
the most valuable forests are on low hills up to about 900 meters
(3,000 feet). Stands are also found in the Philippines and in Java
and elsewhere in the Malay Archipelago. Teak is also planted in
Africa and Central America.
Door: is a generally floor-length
opening in a wall (or other partition), often equipped with a hinged
or sliding panel which can be moved to leave the opening accessible,
or to close it more or less securely. Doors are nearly universal in
structures of all kinds (especially houses and other buildings),
allowing passage between inside and outside, or among internal
rooms. Doors are also found in vehicles, cupboards, cages, etc. The
purpose of a door opening is: to allow people, animals and objects
to pass, for ventilation. The purpose of a door closure is:
preventing passage of air; reducing air drafts and creating an
enclosed space that can be heated or cooled more effectively
(revolving doors are especially efficient for this purpose), privacy
and noise reduction, keeping occupants inside a vehicle, regulation
of access, especially when combined with various types of locks, for
aesthetics (e.g. cupboard doors cutting off view of the contents),
to help prevent the spread of fire. Doors and doorways can also
appear in metaphorical or mystical situations; for example, a
spiritualist might speak of "opening a door to the other world".
Doors can have ritual purposes (one example concerns the doorkeeping
duties of the Gentleman Usher of the Black Rod). The term door can
refer either to the opening or to the movable panel which closes it.
The term doorway can be used to refer specifically to the opening.
When framed in wood for snug fitting of a door, the doorway consists
of two vertical jambs on either side, a lintel or head jamb at the
top, and perhaps a threshold at the bottom.
