The alternative for tropical hardwood by Therm & °Co
Therm & °Co is a subsidiary of Stevens & Co that opts for thermal modification of wood. During this process, based on heat and steam, but without the use of any chemicals, the stability and durability are greatly improved.
ThermoWood® is a thermal modification process from Finland that transforms wood under the influence of heat and steam (without any chemicals) into a sustainable and stable product, similar to wood from tropical forests.
Due to the increased durability it is better suited for outdoor applications. Moreover, ThermoWood® has an insulation capacity that is 23% higher than that of untreated wood. This makes it very suitable for the construction of passive houses.
This process allows us to reduce our carbon footprint by using wood from local forests with a shorter growth cycle and by conserving natural forests. Since ThermoWood is a chemical-free product, it is fully recyclable.
