In addition to untreated wood, we manufacture products for indoor and outdoor use from thermally modified wood. Thermal modification, also known as heat treatment, improves the wood’s resistance to decay and weather conditions, its thermal insulation capacity, as well as its dimensional stability in conditions with fluctuating moisture levels.
Thermally modified wood is darker in color than untreated wood, which gives it a fine hardwood look. This factor alone is often reason enough to choose thermo wood.
Karava has long, solid expertise in wood modification by heat treatment. Our production technique is patented, and we supply thermally modified wood to large companies in the wood industry, for instance.
In addition to our production technique, our high quality is built on having control of the entire production chain. We select the wood from our trusted partners and perform the thermal modification at our own heat treatment facility in Mänttä-Vilppula. The actual products are then manufactured by using the latest machinery at our factory in Pirkkala.
ThermoWood is a trademark registered by the Finnish ThermoWood Association. It may only be used by the members of the association, as well as partners cooperating with the association on matters such as quality control and research. The ThermoWood product classification consists of two classes with different end use applications: Thermo-S and Thermo-D.
The letter ‘S’ in the name stands for stability. Along with appearance, it is indeed a key feature of the end use applications of this product class.
The letter ‘D’ in the name stands for durability. Along with appearance, it is indeed a key feature of the end use applications of this product class.
If a darker color is desired, Thermo-D should be used.
In addition to our standard dimensions, we can also follow individual specifications.
