Wood is good, but thermowood - better!
Not every builder has heard about such wonderful material as thermowood. Why not eliminate the gaps in knowledge in the carpentry realm?
The conversation should start with the fact that today, in the era of the dominance of plastic and polymers, naturalness, environmental friendliness is more than ever valued. Therefore, the best material for interior decoration than wood is not found.
Light, pliable, firmly holding nails or screws in an array, and most importantly beautiful! On the construction site, disputes can be conducted only about the type of wood: someone likes the classic oak, someone practical pine, and someone a supporter of alder. Everywhere there are pros and cons. But there are technologies for obtaining a fundamentally new type of materials, his name is thermowood.
Thermowood: new properties - new features.
It is difficult to believe that there is a tree with such strong properties, but it exists. Of course, in the forest it can not be found. If higher performance characteristics are required, professionals unanimously advise to stop the choice on thermal wood. Where to find it?
Tesli is one of the few domestic manufacturers who have mastered and successfully introduced into production the revolutionary process of sawn timber processing.
Tesli is one of the few domestic manufacturers who have mastered and successfully introduced into production the revolutionary process of sawn timber processing. In the hands of our masters, the classic board acquires unique properties.
Main advantages of thermowood:
· It is not subject to decay, a mold;
· Not afraid of changes in temperature;
· Always saves its linear dimensions;
· Does not warp, does not deform;
· Not afraid of rodents and insects;
· It is climatically steady, does not absorb moisture.
For more than two decades, we have been producing a profile from thermolinden, thermoalder, thermopine and thermooak. Every year the demand for innovative material is steadily increasing.
Pioneers of innovative heat treatment
The architects of the entire planet have built and continue to build from wood to this day. Where natural conditions are the most severe - temperature fluctuations, dampness, precipitation - sometimes the life of a person depends on the reliability of a house. Innovative solutions, modern methods and materials are needed, because wood in its natural form is not a sufficiently resistant material. The best selected boards even are subject to rotting, fungal damage, warping under the influence of moisture. It would seem a dead end - but the way out was found in the country of fjords and sagas.
Finland is forest-rich, and thus rich for business building materials. However, the whims of the Nordic nature make even the most robust wooden structures short-lived. At the end of the last century, local residents began to apply the thermal modification method for sawn timber processing. The main secret is the absence of oxygen in the drying chamber. The tree, despite the high temperature, does not ignite, it is like “baked”.
The technology includes the following steps:
· Traditional drying of lumber for 20 days;
· Standard heat treatment for 1 day;
· Thermal modification - 3 days;
· Cooling - 2 days.
After such drying, lumber is suitable for use in the most adverse conditions.
Heat treatment - an alternative to chemical protection methods
If the wood is treated by impregnation, covered with paint, and then with varnish, then it is possible to obtain a material similar in properties to thermowood. However, naturalness will be lost. Any "chemicals" - an undesirable neighbor in the homes where live allergic persons and children, as well as in health and resort facilities.
Due to the harmfulness of chemically treated wood to health and the environment, since 2004, the European Union has banned its use. Foreign manufacturers have become more active in introducing the thermal modification process into mass production. A thermal board is a “roasted” board almost until it dries out, as a result of which its cellular structure is different. A wood loses its inherent flaws without the help of unwanted synthetic reagents and remains ecologically clean and hygienically neutral.
Drying quality indicators:
· Residual moisture 5%;
· Humidity spread over the stack is not more than 1%;
· Moisture fluctuation in thickness and length of boards up to 1%.
When water drops on the profile from a thermowood, it does not lead and does not warp. In comparison with the usual linden or alder, the rate of absorption is 5 times lower. The capillary structure of wood, destroyed during the heat treatment process, prevents the boards from swelling even in a wet room. The surface of the boards is very dense, without pores. The color of the cuts is the same throughout the depth of the material, which is not achieved by any aggressive impregnation or paint. Shades - from almost black to golden. As a result of continuous multi-stage and complex process technology, a spectacular, stylish, versatile building material with a wide range of applications and a long service life appears.
Thermowood - the material of the future
Thermowood is a new building material. It has not yet succeeded in replacing the old-timers of the construction site - the usual wood profile, boards, and wall paneling. But where the environment dictates increased demands, thermotree no longer has competitors.
Thermowood is the best option for:
· Trim balconies and loggias;
· Decking, garden flooring;
· Decks and decoration elements of boats, yachts;
· Terraces of a country house;
· External wooden facades;
· Durable fences;
· Elements of landscape design.
Thermolinden is widely used for interior trim of various premises, but first of all, steam rooms, baths, saunas. Benches made of thermowood are comfortable and hygienic, the floor - durable. Stylish dark color in a wide range of shades allows you to create interesting interiors.
We offer a wide range of wall panels, timber and corners from thermolinden, thermopine, thermoalder, impeccable service and loyal prices. Regular customers and wholesale customers are provided with a flexible system of discounts and preferences.
