Functional architectural solutions with natural appeal
The natural beauty, functionality and environmental sustainability of wood are undoubtedly concepts we all cherish. At Thermory we process our timber naturally, using only heat and water vapor, to ensure it can last a long time outdoors. We have created a versatile range of profiles, including some with hidden fixings, as well as a variety of embossed patterns and finishing options and modular solutions to inspire architects and designers to find more ways to use wood in their architectural solutions.
Why thermally modified wood?
Thermally modified wood (thermowood) is the most reliable option if you’re looking for a durable and dimensionally stable material for outdoor conditions. The high temperature of thermal modification changes the structure of the wood, significantly improving its durability and resistance to weather conditions.
The biological resistance of the wood increases as the nutrients in the wood become more difficult to reach for pests and molds.
The wood’s moisture absorption capacity and speed decreases, resulting in reduced moisture deformations. The wood maintains its dimensional stability, meaning that it doesn’t cup, twist or bend as much as other wooden decking products.
Thermal modification leads to less internal stress in the wood, significantly reducing material consumption during construction.
The thermal and sound insulation performance of the wood improves.
Thermal modification also gives the wood a delightful darker tone.
Thermal modification is chemical free.

Our wood material is carefully examined and originates from sustainably managed forests
PEFC Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification
Most of our softwood comes from PEFC-certified forests. PEFC is a worldwide federation of national forest certification systems.
Forest Stewardship Council
The FSC is a major advocate for better forest management, promoting the more sustainable use, conservation and recovery of forests globally.
Nordic Swan Ecolabel
Thermory’s pine and spruce products that have undergone intensive thermal modification have acquired the Nordic Swan license for product group 086 (durable/resistant wood for outdoor use).
Building Information Modeling (BIM) files are digital tools that help architects and designers work with intelligent 3D models. The format has become increasingly common in building design and construction. Thermory’s technical BIM files include Revit, Archicad and material texture files.
Choose the most suitable wood species for your project according to the desired application, required durability rating and appearance. All Thermory cladding and decking boards have undergone intensive thermal modification to ensure durability in changing weather conditions. The wood’s durability rating indicates the rot resistance of the particular species (EN 350:2016), and the highest resistance rating for wood is Class 1 (25+ years). To make installation easier a wide range of fixings are available, some of which are concealed to create a clean, screw-free wood surface. Products with end-matching enable more efficient use of materials so nothing is wasted.
Thermally modified wood is easy to maintain and doesn’t necessarily require surface treatment. Like any other wood however, when used outdoors and exposed to UV radiation the surface of Thermory products will naturally turn gray over time. This process starts immediately after the products are installed and can take from a few months to several years depending on how much UV light they’re exposed to. The durability of the products is not affected by the graying process.
If you wish to preserve or alter the wood’s color tone, Thermory boards can be coated with a UV-resistant pigmented mineral oil.
