More about this product

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.

Environmental Stance
Technowood's
stance on environmental issues is at the forefront of its development of products and management of resources. The company believes that humankind is a part of nature however with the unusual power to manipulate and use the resources that make up the natural world to improve quality of life. Today, this power has gone beyond the use of what is necessary for human health and has become luxury consumption. Wood especially is a widely used natural material however it is still very necessary for our survival.

With this in mind, Technowood has approached its use of wood sensitively by making developments which obtain 'more product with less tree' whilst still using natural wood.

Reduced Consumption
Technowood products are made by applying wood veneers to durable materials this reduces the consumption of solid wood by 98% and increases its life expectancy by more than 5 times.

The products can be used in all places where traditional wood products can and the various details and profiles available means that Technowood can be used in projects requiring specific measurements difficult to achieve with other wood products.

Sustainable Forestry
FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) provides guidelines for forest management including water quality protection to protect and maintain natural communities and forests with high conservation values. They prohibit the harvest of rare old-growth forest, prevent loss of natural forest cover and prohibit highly hazardous chemicals.
