By popular demand, Touchstone Home Products has added an outdoor TV lift cabinet, combining top performing TV lift technology with weather-resistant 100% Grade A Plantation teak wood. The Touchstone TechTeak® product line is designed to protect your outdoor TV from the elements and bring your in-home entertainment outside.

Relax on your outdoor deck, pergola, patio or pool area, while watching your favorite TV shows, sporting events and movies on a big screen. The 3-door TechTeak® TV Lift Cabinet can fit a 65-inch flat screen outdoor television or smaller. When the TV is not in use, the motorized TV lift lowers your outdoor TV into the protective cabinet.

Made from the Best Grade A Plantation Teak Wood

Touchstone has chosen the best Grade A Plantation teak wood for long lasting weather resistance and wear. Unlike other wood or outdoor furniture materials, this teak pop up TV cabinet will retain its luxurious look and age well through the seasons. Teak wood is a natural choice for outdoor use because it contains natural compounds that resist moisture, pest damage and UV degradation.

What Does Grade A Teak Mean?

The area of the teak tree where the wood comes from determines the wood grade. Grade A teak is the best quality teak wood from the center or heart of the tree. Teak heart wood has a consistent, close wood grain with warm gold and honey tones. This premium center cut is rich with natural protective oils. Touchstone TechTeak® TV Lift Cabinets are made with top quality Grade A Teak Plantation Wood.

What Does Plantation Teak Mean?

Touchstone uses renewable and sustainable Plantation teak wood, which is exclusively grown and harvested in forests managed by the Indonesian government. This forest management ensures the seeds are planted with proper soil conditions for the best growth. The trees are nurtured for the natural teak wood benefits and harvested at the peak time when the mature tree is 40 years old or more.

What Is the Difference Between Shiplap and Biscuit Joinery?

While the TechTeak® TV Lift Cabinet is described as Shiplap style because of the tight overlapping wood panels, we use Biscuit joinery for better water resistance. The Biscuit joinery on the flat top lid of the cabinet, combined with sealant, prevents moisture from getting inside of the TV lift cabinet.

How Do I Care for the TechTeak® Plantation Teak TV Cabinet?

We finish the TechTeak® Plantation Teak Outdoor TV Lift Cabinet with “Teak-Shield” at our factory. This non-oil finish prevents stains and mildew, while eliminating moisture absorption. “Teak Shield” allows the natural patina color to last, protecting the wood without adding a finish color.

We recommend that you re-apply “Teak Shield” as regular maintenance to protect your TechTeak® Cabinet from mildew and stains from food and drink. Simple re-applications will help to retain the natural beauty of the teak wood.

Should I Use an Outdoor Furniture Cover?

Just as you would cover outdoor furniture when it is not in use, we recommend using a cover as extra protection against the elements. As a special bonus, The TechTeak® Outdoor TV Lift Cabinet ships with a high-end cabinet cover. This waterproof, weather-resistant cover is made with 600D Oxford Fabric, anti-UV coating, and PVC Coating.
