  • In addition to untreated wood, we manufacture products for indoor and outdoor use from thermally modified wood. Thermal modification, also known as heat treatment, improves the wood's resistance to decay and weather conditions, its thermal insulation capacity, as well as its dimensional stability in conditions with fluctuating moisture levels. Thermally modified wood is darker in color than untreated wood, which gives it a fine hardwood look. This factor alone is often reason enough& ...


  • Thermally modified wood is perfect for all outdoor applications. Rot and insect resistant, Thermally modified wood is the best choice for raised bed gardening. Unlike treated lumber, it is made without the use of chemicals and will not leach toxic substances into the soil; perfect if you are into organic gardening. Likewise, Thermally modified wood is also well suited for outdoor projects as it lasts significantly longer than treated lumbers, without exposing friends and family to toxins.


  • INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR outdoor APPLICATION of PAKARI TMD. Getting Started Thermally modified wood is Still wood. Once wood has been put through the unique process of Thermal Modification it is improved at the molecular level, taking on an abundance of new benefits; increased durability, stability, and even a reduction in the weight of the wood. Besides the physical improvements, the Thermal Modification process also reduces the woods ability to absorb& ...


  • Due to the enhanced dimensional stability, improved biological durability, reduced permeability and good appearance thermally modified or heat treated wood is increasingly used in many outdoor applications such as exterior cladding, decking, terraces and garden furniture. The resistance of heat treated wood against weathering (UV-light, wetting) is not changed largely when compared to untreated wood, making a surface treatment with coatings necessary (Militz, 2002; Hill, 2009).


  • Sir Paul Smith and Nathalie de Leval create 'Shed' as part of AHEC's collaboration with the London Design Festival. Commercial thermal modification of timber was developed and introduced in the 1990s, and is becoming increasingly popular with architects and designers globally as a substitute for tropical timbers and traditionally preserved timber. The American Hardwood Export Council (AHEC) recognizes thermal modification as a developing market with great potential for& ...


  • This engineering design guideline is intended for wood in outdoor above ground applications, i.e. use class 3 according to EN 335. It is based on a prescribed limit state for onset of decay during a reference service life of 30 years. Onset of decay ..... The durability of modified wood, e.g. acetylated, furfurylated and thermally modified, is specific to the technologies employed and may vary between specifications for the different materials. Expert advice is also recommended for assigning& ...


  • Exterior Performance of Thermally modified wood Holds Up. Thermally modified hardwood has similar physical properties to traditional wood choices. Thermally modified wood strength is on par with the same species that has not been thermally modified. You can cut, drill, nail and screw thermally modified wood the same as traditional wood. There are also no special fasteners required with thermally modified wood, but you can use a hidden deck fastener system if you wish.


  • How Does Thermally modified wood Look Different? The high gradual heat process creates permanent reactions and gives the wood a rich, deep brown appearance. The darkened color brings an unexpected tropical look. The chocolate color can be maintained in exterior applications by finishing the wood with a UV-inhibitor sealant on all sides and ends of the wood. If not finished, the wood will naturally weather to a shade of gray because of exposure to the sun's ultraviolet rays.


  • Thermally modified wood Started with the Vikings! Thermally modified wood products are still considered new to us here in the United States. But they've been widely used for over 20 years in Germany, Austria, Norway, Switzerland, Japan and Italy for both interior and exterior use. However, it was the Vikings, centuries ago, who apparently first discovered that burning the surface of wood made it more durable and better suited for exterior use.


  • As the temperature of the kiln boosts, the increased heat “bakes” the sugars and tannins in the wood, making them inedible to microbes and insects, with the wood becoming darker and hardening. Thermally-modified wood is a superior product for both indoor and outdoor applications, including high moisture environments. It is also a high-performing alternative to pressure-treated wood, and offers cost advantages over more expensive species. Our thermally modified products:
