THERMOWOOD
What is Thermowood?
Thermally modified wood (also called thermowood) is the end product of a process used to treat solid wood. This process is controlled by the physical parameters of temperature and steam. An important step in this process is drying the wood to 0% moisture content and then raising the temperature and heat treating it up to 215°C (419°F). Thermowood offers advantages over untreated wood in terms of dimensional stability, surface hardness, rot resistance and less cracking.
Advantages and Characteristics of Thermowood
  • Certified service life of up to 30 years when installed horizontally and fully exposed to the elements.
  • 100% chemical free and recyclable. 
  • Reduced surface temperature when exposed to strong sunlight. 
  • Barefoot friendly. 
  • No resin pockets. 
  • Low tendency to warp, twist or buckle....
  • Reduced thermal conductivity (higher insulation value in facade construction). 
  • Reduced probability and weaker occurrence of stress cracks. 
  • Washouts are not visible.
  •  Low risk of infection in case of chipping or spalling. Best energy balance between wood, composite and stone alternatives for decking boards.
Color
The color of thermowood, like conventional wood, is not UV-resistant. The graying of the wood does not affect its durability. To preserve the color of the wood longer, we recommend oiling the wood at least once after installation. In addition, the oil closes the pores of the wood, preventing dirt from settling immediately, which facilitates subsequent cleaning. Various wood care oils for weather protection have shown very good results in terms of slowing down graying and after-treatment.
Cracks
Minimal stress cracks are possible even in thermally treated wood. Normally, these cracks have a width of 1-2 mm and are not limited to a certain length. The appearance of such cracks is completely normal and is not a reason for complaint.
Thermowood Ash
Thermo Ash is dimensionally stable, extremely rot and weather resistant, very durable and almost never warps. Thermowood ash is particularly suitable where there are large fluctuations in humidity and climate - the proven elegant choice for wooden terraces!
Thermowood Pine
Due to its excellent properties such as dimensional stability, biological durability, fast workability and low thermal conductivity, thermo pine is used as an alternative to larch in terrace and facade construction.
