The Thermoash
Thermoash

As for this floor, this is a hardwood, which was treated by the temperature more than 200°C without any chemical additives. Due to this process the advantagies of the wood have been changed: very high durability, no resin formation, reduced swell value and degree of shrinkage.

 

Because of high dimensional stability and durability of the thermo-wood, it is a suitable building material for the places with domination of the rapid changeable air humidity and extreme climatic fluctuations (e.g. in spa or sauna) and also a pleasant alternative to a tiled floors.  

The Swiss Stone Pine

As a tree of the Alps and Carpathians swiss stone pine reaches an age of 1000 years and is especially famous for its long-lasting and aromatic scent.

Under the effect of light the color of the stripes can become more neutral, what makes the appearance of the wood calmer.

Due to its special wood quality the ash belongs to the noble hardwood. The light-colored wood suits very well if high requirements for the durability and elasticity imposed, such as e.g., for the tool handles, sport equipment or musical instruments. Additionally the ash is used for the decorative plywood, parquet floors and bentwood furniture.   

The Beech
Beech

The beech is the most common broadleaved tree in Austria and is considered as one of the most important commercial timber in our region.

 

The certain reddish colouring of this wood is reached through the steam treatment and drying; before processing it's very light, almost white.

The douglas fir wood in Europe is produced of relatively young trees and has a slightly reddish hue with a striped structure. It's used for plywood, wainscoting, furniture and parquet floorboard. 

The Pine

The pines grow almost on each kind of soil, that's why after the spruce and beech they are the third common tree species in the forests of Europe.

 

The strongly marked border of the year rings creates the characteristical texture of the pinewood. The typical texture with melichrous to henna color isn't strongly marked on the fresh processed wood.
