Manufacture

The Thermowood®  process respects the natural properties of wood. This patented production process is based on the gradual thermal modification or wood, wherein the chemical and physical properties of the wood undergo permanent change. This is achieved by heat treating specially selected Northern Scandinavian Redwood (Pinus Sylvestris) to 212° Celsius in a continuous unique kilning process whilst protecting it with steam. This thermal process enhances the chemical and physical properties of the timber and provides greater weather resistance without the need for toxic chemical preservative treatment. Thermowood® meets the European consumer safety, health and environmental requirements.
