Lunawood Thermowood solar shades are an ecological way of cooling buildings without consuming extra energy. When using Lunawood, you can prevent excessive solar from overheating the interiors with material that binds CO2 and hence lowers the carbon footprint of the building. Further, due to the stability of Lunawood, it can be used in mobile sunscreen systems with opening and closing mechanisms.
Lunawood Thermowood is a modern architectural material, which creates a beautiful contemporary look with a soft, natural finish also when combined with steel, concrete, and glass. Thermowood is produced using natural methods; heat and steam. It is dimensionally stable, resistant to decay and non-toxic.
The durable product from Lunawood used to create solar shades is LunaThermo-D; along with appearance, biological durability is a key property in the end-use applications of products in this treatment class. The tangential swelling and shrinkage due to moisture are low. Lunawood produces Thermowood from Scandinavian PEFC-certified pine from Finland. It can be used inside or outdoors, in any climate. Lunawood is an eco-friendly natural product that is easy to machine and install.
Due to the high temperature of Thermowood treatment process, resin is removed from the wood. This ensures high visual quality for both uncoated and coated LunaThermo-D. The color of the wood is affected by the treatment temperature and time – the higher the temperature the darker the appearance. As with all softwoods, variances occur and are due to varying densities. When the product is exposed to UV-light, it will turn beautiful silver grey unless protected by a pigmented surface protection. Lunawood is an ecological and chemical-free solution for creating the finishing touch to any outdoor surroundings.
