Why we use solid wood
Wood plays a great part in the history of mankind and is a living, organic material. Genuine wood is a part of nature and fulfils our striving towards having an authentic instead of a synthetic world.
People who have a solid wood kitchen appreciate the advantages of wood. Food stays fresh a lot longer in solid wood cupboards and bread does not become mouldy, etc
The latest tests have shown that this natural material even shows resistance to bacteria. Germs cannot thrive on natural solid wood surfaces.
Wood is anti-static and therefore acts against any dust that is whirled up.
With regard to maintenance wood is relatively undemanding. Depending on working conditions its surface can be treated once or twice a year with beeswax or other types of biological oil-wax.
A great advantage of natural wood is that even after many years of use the surface can be easily re-worked to give it a “good as new” look. Even marks, dents and scratches can be removed.
Wood is THE natural material which is most attractive for people with allergies.
Wood belongs to the lasting raw material and energy resources. Easy working and the associated low power requirement in acquisition and processing also play an important role for ecological evaluation.
Wood has outstanding results in ecological statistics.
Solid wood products are those whose cross-sections have been worked from one tree trunk and eventually processed (by drilling, planing or milling).
In comparison with ply-wood or other wooden products the structure of solid wood is neither mechanically nor mechanically-chemically altered.
