What is ThermoWood?
ThermoWood is a thermal modification procedure that preserves wood in its most natural and flawless state for a life-long journey. The “ThermoWood method” involves a carefully computer controlled heat and steam process up to 210 degrees C.
Besides the preservation, the ThermoWood process also causes certain chemical changes in wood. Not only does the colour darken but the stability, decay resistance and insulation properties are largely increased after the process is complete.
The ThermoWood method, brand and logo can only by the used by members of the International ThermoWood Association.

ThermoWood Pine Softwood
The all familiar redwood pine tree has been the main woodcraft for centuries. Pines are among the most commercially important tree species valued for their timber and wood pulp throughout the world. Redwood Pine wood is a softwood widely used in high-value carpentry items such as furniture, window frames, panelling, floors and roofing. Pine has a natural look and with its light colour and knotty texture, and is the preferred choice for nature lovers. The Pine timber used in ThermoWood production originates from the cold climates of Finland and Siberia where the slower growth yields a higher quality
Ipe hardwood originates from South America, where it is reffered to as ‘Iron wood’. Not only does this species have a beautiful smell (Subtle yet characteristic vanilla/cinnamon scent while being worked) but it is also a tough species making it the perfect material for outdoor use. Ipe is a very durable spceies and has excellent insect resistance.
Timber is a diverse natural product. All species of timber can have a range of colours, not only between trees in the same forest, but also in boards sawn from the same tree. For this reason it is nearly impossible to see the variances of a species in a single sample.
Samples vary in colour so we recommend that you visit a display or show area where you can really get an understanding of what the boards will look and feel like. QTD have their very own unique show areas, why not come and visit us!
