This revolutionary technique involves cooking
hardwoods to the point of almost burning, thus
altering the cellular structure of the wood and
sealing it permanently.

This treatment process renders the material
impervious to moisture decay, mildew, termites
and fungus.

In addition, thermory treated woods are far more
dimensionally stable with respect to cupping and
warping, which typically affect any outdoor
woods.

7
This process was also developed as an
eco-friendly decking option for consumers looking
for a solution beyond traditional hardwoods.

8
Since their arrival, thermory products are
growing in popularity as an alternative and
viable solution to using commonly treated
materials, largely due to their durability but
most notably, the ability to withstand the
elements for long periods of time without the
need for any chemicals or oiling.

Thermory hardwood decking uses specific thermal
heating processesin place of traditional
chemical-based wood treating techniques.

10
Ash hardwood is placed into a large kiln where
the wood is slowly heated to around 205 degrees
Celsius (400 degrees Fahrenheit). Once the wood
reaches this temperature, it is maintained at
this level for several hours.

11
During this process the materialcomes close to
exceeding its actual combustion temperature. In
order to prevent the wood from combusting, steam
is then introduced into the kiln and the air is
removed.

12
The steam also helps to ensure the wood dries
evenly. If steam was not present, the exterior
layers of the wood dry out quickly rendering it
brittle and susceptible to breaking.

13
It also helps remove sugars and resins contained
in ash hardwood. By using steam to assist in
cooking the wood, this process further extracts
the previously noted elements, leaving hardwoods
such as Ash resistant to insects, mold, water,
and bacteria.

The shade of Thermory ash hardwood decking varies
from a dark to chocolate brown. This original
colour can be preserved and maintained by
treating it annually with an oil-based
preservative.

Alternatively, if the wood is not treated, it
will still maintain its durability but fade to a
weathered brownish grey over time due to sunlight
exposure.
