Thermo ash (HOTwood) is the best sustainable alternative for tropical hardwood varieties and an excellent choice for many projects.
What is thermo ash (HOTwood)?
HOTwood – short for ‘heated outdoor timber’ – is a perfect expression of our sustainable production values.
Our HOTwood ash is thermally treated at a temperature of at least 215°C without the addition of chemical substances, using steam to prevent splitting and cracking. Following this treatment, thermo ash is comparable to class 1 tropical hardwood, but with even better shape retention and a very attractive colour. HOTwood ash is also more durable and more resistant to moisture and wood rot.
Thermo ash develops a beautiful, evenly grey patina under the effects of wind and weather.
Upon request, PEFC certified thermo ash is also available.
With our clear focus on the latest trends, we can offer customers top-quality, exceptionally convenient designs. And thanks to our smart systems, woodworking professionals will appreciate considerable time savings.
