Thermo-Ayous and Thermo-Fraké are the result of thermally modifying these wood species to a higher durability class. Thermal modifications is a controlled pyrolysis process where wood is heated (>208°C) in a low-oxygen environment to increase its durability class. Thanks to this process, negative aspects of wood such as fungal growth, increased humidity levels, infestations of insects, expansion and contraction etc. will be reduced to a minimum or completely eliminated.
