About Rockwood Thermally-Treated Timber
The process of thermally-modifying lumber to enhance its durability has existed for centuries. Over the past 20 years, European developers have worked improved the process with softwoods, and the market for thermally treated wood has continued to experience growth both abroad, and in the United States.

During the heat treatment process, the sugars and fibers that serve as a food source for fungus, mold, and decay (deterioration factors for traditional lumber) are baked out of the wood. Thermo-treated woods are also eco-friendly because there are no chemicals used in the treatment process.
