Thermory Nordic Pine Cladding
Thermory Nordic Pine is Scots Pine which is procured from Northern Europe forests, and has been thermally modified. As a result, the timber has a lighter golden colour throughout the full thickness of the timber, which naturally ages to a platinum grey. The original colour and tone can be preserved with UV protectant oil, or alternatively stained darker with a tinted oil.
The Thermory collection offers natural thermally modified timber solutions for external cladding. Thermory thermally modified timber cladding is unique and beautiful in grain and colour, with profiles to suit the NZ building code. All Thermory timber is sourced from well managed American and European forests, that take care of forest responsibility and sustainability.
The Thermory intense modification process increases the dimensional stability and the durability of the timber as well as brining out the beauty of the natural grain. During the modification process, chemical and structural changes occur within the timber to improve some of the timber’s basic characteristics. The timber has a lower equilibrium moisture content, which means that the timber dimensional stability has increased, and the timber is less likely going to warp, bow, cup, twist or shrink. Thermal modification also increases the timbers durability making the timber achieve the highest possible durability of natural timber. Thermory Ash has Durability Class1. The thermal modification process uses only heat and steam (no Chemicals) and thermal modification kilns to complete the process. Thermory Ash is produced at 215 degrees Celsius in a special computer-controlled kiln. The resulting product is more durable and stable making it the ideal solution for external cladding where the timber is used in exposed areas.
