Uniqwa Latte Poles have been stripped and kiln-dried to bring them back to their natural, earthy aesthetic. If left untreated and exposed to the elements, the poles will naturally weather and patina over time, gradually changing to a beautiful silvery grey colour.
Our latte poles have a TanE treatment, making them suitable for full outdoor above-ground use.
Uniqwa latte poles are sold in three different finish options depending on your desired look. In a raw finish, or if you would like our team to enhance the finish, you can choose a high-pressure, water-blasting finish or a fully sanded finish.
Please see the images for a representation of the different options for the finished look.
Latte Poles in their natural form do not have a classified fire rating; optional treatment with a Class A fire retardant may be sourced externally.
On average, 23 poles cover a meter, with the exact number depending on pole thickness and the preferred gap. This allows clients to adjust spacing as desired and a visually appealing solution suitable for any application.

Uniqwa Eucalyptus Latte Poles are a natural timber, as such a natural 'living' material.
Latte Poles will respond to temperature and humidity variations by expanding and contracting. Your poles can experience movement and cracks as it adjusts - this is not a fault, but a natural occurrence within the fibres of a natural product.
Latte Poles are full of character with the appearance of naturally occurring knots, and a variety of colours. Grains and knots found in wood are simply a character of timber and not a defect.
Every Latte Pole is unique, variances in tone, veins, grain pattern, leaching, cracking and knots are to be expected.
The natural tendency for Latte Poles is to patina beautifully into a silvery-grey look, which develops over time in natural conditions, including sunlight and moisture.
None of the above is viewed as a fault; we embrace these changes as the natural characteristics and beauty of timber. Uniqwa Collections does not offer refunds, replacements or exchanges arising from the look of the Latte Poles as described here. These are natural features that are accepted when purchasing Uniqwa Eucalyptus Latte Poles.
