Real Wood for the Real
Wood has been a fundamental resource in all our lives. The
natural beauty and versatility of wood can be seen almost
everywhere you look. Wood has been used more aesthetically
for interior applications such as furniture, trim, flooring,
etc. But why not bring the natural appeal of wood to the
outside? The answer is simple, wood is very susceptible
to deterioration especially when it is exposed to the natural
A partial solution to the problem has been in the use of
tropical hardwoods and chemically treated woods. However,
as well as these items hold up outside, their dimensional
stability is still lacking and the toxins are hazardous
for humans and the environment. So, what other solution
can there be?
During the last 20 years, scientists have been working
on a method to increase a woods durability and stability
as well as improve the woods performance in exterior applications.
The method is called thermal modification. Long ago, Vikings
learned the secret to increasing the woods potential by
exposing it to fire. In the 60’s, scientist expanded
upon the Viking method and found that by using a heat and
steam system, they could create a wood that is durable and
dimensionally stable with no chemicals added. After extensive
research and tests, this product is now available in the
U.S. and is called EcoPrem™.
Lumber Company dba EcoVantage brought this
process to the U.S. and has built a state of the art facility
to process this EcoPrem™ wood. With EcoPrem™
as the base material, EcoVantage has been able to produce
a multitude of products for outdoor uses. . All of these
products are currently made from #1 Grade Southern Yellow
Pine, which is one of the best structural wood materials.
Southern Yellow Pine is also a good renewable resource since
new trees grow when old ones are cut down.
