OUR THERMO-TREATED DECKING
As a UK distributor of the innovative and eco-friendly Thermory® collection, we offer thermo-treated decking boards in both hardwood and softwood. Thermory® decking boards have been heated and steamed at temperatures of up to 215°C in computer-controlled kilns to give timbers, that are not typically known for their durability, the credentials of class 1 and 2 hardwoods. In addition to adding stability and ensuring a low moisture content, thermo treated timber achieves a dark, deluxe colour all throughout the board. Thermory® processes are entirely chemical-free and are only applied to responsibly harvested raw materials. These thermo- treated decking boards are supplied with innovative and time-saving fixings that allow boards to be displayed to their full potential.
WHAT IS THERMORY® DECKING?
Thermo-modified timbers offer an alternative to standard impregnated timbers and is an ever-popular method as it is a chemical-free process that makes use of timber sourced from well-managed American and European forests (endangered rainforest wood is not used).
Thermo-treated Pine and Ash Decking boards have been modified with steam and computer-controlled kilns which exposes the timber to intense heat treatment (temperatures up to 215°C) making the timber less likely to rot, warp, bow, twist or shrink due to its higher dimensional stability and lower moisture content.
The result of thermo-treating timber is the transformation of responsibly sourced and fast-growing pine, a softwood, into a decking material with class 2 durability credentials equal to that of hardwoods.
Like all-natural timber, Thermory® unfinished Decking boards will begin to gently weather down once exposed to the elements. Such weathering includes; an attractive silvering/greying and the development of small, surface hairline cracks. Whilst many prefer to allow this appearance to develop, it can be kept minimal through regular application of Thermory® Thermo-wood oil. These boards can also be sanded back at any time to restore the original eye-catching tones.
This Thermo-treated range of products includes Decking, Flooring and Internal and External Cladding. All offer excellent durability, outstanding value and a high-end contemporary finish and with 4 methods of installation available, Thermory® decking saves time yet provides aesthetically pleasing and weather enduring service for years to come.
