Installation & Material Care

Solid wood is coveted for its organic texture, strength and durability. It introduces a touch of warmth and rusticity to any room it resides in.

The material expands and contracts as a natural response to changing temperatures, which could result in cracking and uneven bumps on the surface. As such, we recommend placing the furniture away from heat.

Exposure to moisture also negatively affects the longevity and quality of the wood. As such, we recommend placing the furniture in areas with regulated humidity. Outdoor use of the furniture is not recommended for the same reason.

Warranty Policy

BALAK’s products are guaranteed to be free from defective materials, manufacturing and workmanship.

All Mejas are entitled to a two-year warranty on the tabletop, mold steel frame and electrical components. A one-year extension is available at 10% of the product price. Within warranty period, Your Meja is subjected to one time one-to-one exchange only.

The warranty is valid for the original purchaser with a proof of purchase and is not transferrable. Upon reception, it is the purchaser’s responsibility to inspect the wooden surface of the product for any defects. The wooden surface will be deemed free of defects if no issues are reported within 7 days of reception.

– Regular wear and tear
– Damages caused by exceeding the Meja’s load limit of 100kg
