You can order samples of our panels from us at any time. Tell us what you have planned to use from our productized panels for. After this we can give you a sample of products for your project and provide our designers perspective what they have taken into account in similar projects.
Making custom templates
Are you designing something completely unique that hasn’t been implemented before? Can’t find a suitable product anywhere? Or do you have an idea what Finnish wood construction and interior designing need? Tell us about your product idea and we’ll make custom models for you. The idea alone is enough!
As pioneers in our field, we have been involved in reforming the Finnish market for exterior cladding and interior panels. We are constantly developing products in cooperation with designers and architects so that we can offer home builders in Finland and abroad new, innovative and more user-oriented solutions. We want to make our finished and real wood products available to everyone.
Why are more and more people choosing wood?
Genuine wood is an expressive and durable material for even the most challenging projects. It is the choice of a responsible builder as wood construction consumes less natural resources and energy. The wood also has antibacterial- and acoustic properties. Together, these factors make it a far-reaching building material that contributes to people’s well-being.
Naturalness and liveliness make wood unique
In nature everything is unique. Every wood panel and board are unique in the same way – there is no product like wood. Therefore, everything built of wood is unique and authentic.
It is possible to customize the look and shape of wood exactly as you want and taking into account the naturally beautiful properties of the wood. The branches belong to the tree, and the nuanced color variation of the heartwood is especially evident in the translucent tones.
The wood is warm and soft. It’s good to be close to it. The wood beautifully reflects light, making the space spacious and comfortable. Thanks to its naturalness, looking and touching a tree has been studied to reduce stress.
According to studies conducted in Canada, Austria, Japan and Norway, wood improves our emotional state when indoors for long periods of time. Touching a wooden surfaces gives people a sense of safety and closeness to nature. This is in comparison to touching metal surfaces like aluminum or stainless steel and even plastic – all cause your blood pressure to raise. This is due to conductivity. Wood has low conductivity compared to metals which have high conductivity – this effects our nervous system and increases our stress levels. Not even plants have the same positive results as wood.
Echoing is also reduced due to the acoustic properties of the wood. Wood is a hygroscopic material that has the ability to store and release moisture. This has beneficial effects on indoor air especially during winter.
Wood is an ecological building material
The amount of wood required for to build a detached house entirely of wood grows back in under 10 seconds in Finnish forests when the amount is calculated as wood biomass. Correspondingly, the material required for a wooden apartment building grows in Finnish forests in less than 30 seconds.
Wood is a carbon sink and does not consume nearly as much natural resources or energy as other construction. If European housing were based on wood instead of concrete the consumption of natural resources would be reduced by as much as 70%. At the same time, energy consumption during the manufacture and construction of building materials would be reduced by 40 percent and CO2 emissions would be reduced by 60 percent.
