wood species

Alder

Beautiful light, reddish hues without distinct growth rings. Alder belongs to the birch family and the structure of the wood is very similar to birch, but differs in that it has dark brown pith flecks, which are typical of the alder.

Hardness: Janka 440, i.e. soft hard wood
Weight: 400 to 600 kg/m3 at 8% humidity

Product types:

Ash, brown heart

The heartwood of ash is darker, and the combination of the light wood and the slightly darker heartwood makes for an attractive worktop with a greater play of colours than with regular light ash. An oiled surface will become more golden with exposure to sun and daylight. Ash with brown heartwood is a popular wood for kitchen worktops, and is light and mild with a play of colours. FSC® certified available.

Hardness: Janka 760, i.e. hard wood
Weight: 500 to 750 kg/m3 at 8% humidity

Product types:

Ash, Thermo

Ash, which has been heat-treated, changes colour to dark brown and becomes more water resistant. An oiled worktop in thermo ash assumes a lovely, exotic colour, which is close to that of mahogany. FSC® certified available.

Hardness: Janka 760, i.e. hard wood
Weight: 500 to 750 kg/m3 at 8% humidity

Product types:

Ash, light

Light, golden wood with long, large grain structure. An oiled surface will become more golden with exposure to sun and daylight. Light ash is a very popular wood for kitchen worktops, and is light and mild. FSC® certified available.

Hardness: Janka 760, i.e. hard wood
Weight: 500 to 750 kg/m3 at 8% humidity

Product types:

Bamboo, carbonised

Bamboo comes from tropical humid areas in East Asia. Bamboo is an umbrella term for lignified grasses from tropical regions. It covers some 1,000 species, but we use the genus Mao Zhu, which primarily comes from the province of Fujian.

4000 x 625 x 30/40 mm. Fine pore structure and extremely durable. Light natural and carbonised (brown caramel). Vertically glued – front and back. So there is no difference in a bridge solution, where the leg/legs is/are visible from both sides.

The inlay is longitudinal, so the front edge appears as a continuous stave. The worktops can be glued together in the usual way for wider worktops – bridge solutions, for example. FSC® certified available.

Hardness: Janka 730, i.e. hard wood
Weight: 750 to 850 kg/m3 at 8% humidity
