NEW – Thermally Enhanced Hardwood

Permanently altering the
look to create a 
richer, more intense hue of
Australian Hardwood.

With the knowledge and skill acquired from the ten years of thermally modifying Australian Hardwood, Hurfords has now developed a process known as Thermally Enhanced Hardwood.

This process uses a unique temperature schedule through the drying process to create a colour palette that reflects the more traditional tones in the species, altering the blush lightness of Sydney Blue Gum to a more timeless deep scarlet intensity.

Another advantage of Thermally Enhanced Hardwood is the transformation of the traditional lighter sapwood to a more natural and attractive warm undertone.
