Boards and surfaces


 

Our 18 mm plywood boards are made of birch and come from northern European and sustainable forestry.

The cover layers are available in four options, two of which are particularly eco-friendly:

  1. Veneered surfaces in oak, maple and beech, many other types of wood are possible.
    The surfaces are treated twice with hard wax oil.
  2. Eco-surfaces of the company Koskisen with water colour and
    transparent seal.

Connectors


 

The connectors are made of high quality certified maple and European oak.

The surfaces are treated with wax resin, based on natural shellac, oil, wax and fermentation alcohol.

At the Hesse Lignal lab, our connectors were treated with various combined preparations and tested to develop the optimal surface and best possible sun protection against bleachery and change in colour.
