What is ThermoWood®? High-quality, long-lasting and affordable

ThermoWood® is the result of the thermal modification of wood to a higher durability class. Thermal modification is a controlled pyrolysis process where the wood is heated (± 208°) in a low-oxygen environment to increase the durability of the wood.
