FSC HEAT-TREATED ASH By Ravaioli Legnami
Wood panel for facade / decking
FSC-certified Heat-Treated Ash, after it is completed dried, is subjected to a heat treatment that brings it to a temperature of about 200 ° with a final moisture content of about 5%. Following the treatment, the material turns brown and has an exceptional dimensional stability. Its durability characteristics are also improved to offer performance comparable to that of the finest tropical woods.FSC Heat-Treated Ash can be used to create small to medium sized floors and decks, subject to low foot traffic, for use in residential and private settings. Its characteristics of durability and stability allow it to be used as cladding for the facades of buildings.Ravaioli Legnami recommends installation of the strips with symmetric or concealed milling with clips on a substructure with a 30 cm interaxis. Before installation, it is advisable to keep the material securely strapped on pallets and possibly stored in a shaded area, protected from inclement weather.When wood is exposed to sunlight and inclement weather, its tone will naturally be altered and its colour will fade over time. Regular maintenance with oils can slow down this process.
