More about this product

A curved walkway leads to the Presidential House in Ankara, the shape mirrors existing landscape features and the wood finish contrasts with the concrete and stone elements. At night, lights built in-between each fence-profile illuminate the structure.

Solid wood has become fashionable in construction however it is subject to aging from time and environmental factors causing deformations. Technowood products are made by applying wood veneers to durable materials; this approach prevents unpredictable bending and deformation. Using veneers reduces the consumption of wood by 98% and increases its life expectancy by more than 5 times.

Technowood can be used where traditional wood products can but also where specific details and measurements make the use of other wood products difficult. They are easy to assemble and be produced to specification.

Durable Profiles

The profiles can be aluminum or GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic), these materials are lightweight, high strength and easy to machine. Their weather resistance durability is utilized with the finish of natural wood from the wood veneers added to the profiles.

Environmental Credentials

In the construction industry, wood is often harvested from trees which take almost 100 years to mature, sustainable forestry is now widely practiced however does not take into account the unpredictability of wood consumption levels 100 years from now. This is why Technowood has paired sustainable forestry practices in line with FSC guidelines with their revolutionary method of applying natural wood veneers to durable materials; thus also addressing the issue of high consumption.
