timura | Thermo wood
ROBUST – BUT STILL A PIECE OF NATURE.
ONLY DURABLE WOODS SUCH AS NATURALLY GROWN TROPICAL WOOD OR OUR INNOVATIVE THERMO WOOD ARE SUITABLE FOR USE OUTDOORS.
During thermal treatment, ecologically grown native woods are heated to over 200 degrees without the use of any chemicals. The heat compresses the fibres of the wood, making the wood more robust and less prone to swelling and warping. Unlike tropical wood – every piece of thermo wood from timura offers consistent, premium quality. Using thermo wood as an alternative to tropical wood also helps preserve tropical rainforests – the habitat for many endangered species.
Thermo wood offers a wealth of advantages. However, the fact remains that it is a natural product and, just like human skin, it is subject to an ageing process. Extremely wet weather or intense sunshine may therefore, occasionally, cause changes to the appearance of thermo wood and/or small cracks or warping.
NATURAL, THE ON-TREND "USED LOOK", OR NOURISHED WITH WOOD OILS – THE LOOK IS ENTIRELY UP TO YOU.
Like any wood, tropical wood and thermo wood will turn grey if not properly maintained because UV rays destroy lignin, the substance that gives wood its colour. This natural discolouration is currently in vogue and is for many people what makes wood so appealing.
You can determine the appearance of your fencing yourself by applying a surface treatment. Applications of oil serve to protect the wood, allow it to breathe, reduce deformations and impart colour – brown oiled, grey oiled or used look. It is also possible to apply stains over the entire surface.
