THERMO ASH AB

Ash is quite a light coloured timber; but by using a process that smokes & steams the timber at high temperatures it darkens the wood dramatically and gives a much deeper attractive dark coloured wood.  The result of this process is wood that is far more stable and absorbs considerably less moisture than in its natural state making it a perfect alternative to exotic species for kitchen worktops.

icon_silkwood Silkwood is our unique surface finish that results in one of the highest quality finishes in the market. The process was originally developed for oiling and finishing the new Eurostar St. Pancras terminal Jatoba wood flooring. With several million visitors every year passing over the floor it’s proven to be extremely hard wearing and stain resistant - that technology and experience has now been introduced into our worktop ranges so you can experience the benefit of Silkwood. The combination of WOCA penetrating oils and the patented Silkwood finish gives a finish that is unrivalled within the marketplace and a worktop that literally feels like silk!
