Increasing environmental awareness and demand for sustainable, natural, and chemical-free building products initiated JSC’s research into thermal timber treatment methods, recognising that Thermally Modified Timber (TMT) opens up a truly sustainable resource.
JSC TMT offers a selection of Thermally Modified Timbers that have been specifically sourced for the New Zealand market based on their versatility, durability, aesthetic properties and environmental credentials to suit New Zealand weather conditions. JSC has a selection of Thermally Modified Timbers available ranging from interesting feature grades to clearer grades that have minimal natural rustic characteristics.
The JSC TMT range is sourced from reliable and world-renowned suppliers that are leaders in the thermal modification process of timbers.
Lunawood Thermo-D is a beautiful feature grade thermally modified timber option that is sustainably sourced from Europe and profiled locally by JSC Timber into NZ-approved profiles.
The unique visual characteristics of the knots in Lunawood give the cladding a unique personality. Lunawood features are varied, ranging from larger, more oval-shaped butterfly knots to smaller and more scattered knots. Lunawood Thermo-D has a beautiful caramel brown tone which can be retained by protecting the surface with a tinted coating.
