- Exterior cladding applications
- Interior cladding applications
Thermowood® is thermally modified softwood which has been heat treated to over 200°C using a completely natural and non-toxic method. This results in a material which has been especially engineered for cladding applications to achieve enhanced performance in exterior environments, while retaining the beauty of traditional timber. It is great as a cladding façade on buildings, plus decking and fencing applications.
Thermowood® contains minimal knots and has a warm, rich brown colour. If left untreated, Thermowood® boards will weather to a silvery grey, similar to cedar and larch.
More stable than traditional timber, Thermowood® doesn’t bend, twist or warp. With minimal water absorption and less water content, Thermowood® is lightweight and very dry in nature which makes it resistant to decay, fungi and insect damage. In addition, being dry gives Thermowood® a very smooth finish for precision machining.
Always seek advice about treatment and after-care to preserve the aesthetics and style you want for your cladding in the longer-term.
