5 Reasons Architects Are Choosing KWD

1. Superior Durability & Performance

Architects value materials that not only look beautiful, but also stand the test of time. KLAASWOOD uses an innovative, proprietary 2nd generation hydrolysis technology that is changing the landscape of thermally modified wood. The improved process allows wood modification to be achieved with lower temperatures, which is less stressful on the wood and results in a stronger, more stable product.

Generation 2 Hydrolysis is the only modification process to meet Durability Class 1 Performance, the highest available class, extending KLAASWOOD’s warranty to 20 years. 

This exceptional material, with its enhanced durability and resistance to decay, insects, and moisture, allows architects to push the boundaries of creativity while ensuring long-lasting structural integrity. 

2. Sustainability 

The 2nd generation process requires less energy, lowering KLAASWOOD’s carbon footprint and its impact on the environment. 

The modification process is carried out without the use of chemicals, making it a sustainable alternative compared to other chemical wood treatments. 

KLAASWOOD is also fully recyclable and has an optimized CO2 footprint compared to other products, due to all materials being both sourced and modified in the USA.

3. Aesthetic Appeal

2nd generation hydrolysis allows a larger breadth of species modification. KWD Oak has a natural, attractive grain pattern that adds a timeless and elegant look to any space. 

Thermally modified wood maintains its natural wood appearance while achieving improved performance.

4. Sourced & Modified in the USA

KLAASWOOD beautifully combines the quality of American craftsmanship with European innovation and technology. 

All KLAASWOOD products are proudly sourced and modified in the USA.

KLAASWOOD manufactures and produces thermally modified wood products in Montana, and sources the wood in the USA using sustainable forestry practices. 

5. Affordability Without Compromise

We take pride in being cost-competitive without sacrificing excellence. KLAASWOOD utililzes widely available wood sources to provide strong and durable wood that surpasses the qualities of premium wood sorts.

Our 2nd Generation thermal modification process uses less energy and increased efficiency to lower the cost and make the product more affordable.  

KWD Pine is abundant in the southeastern United States. Due to its availability and ease of cultivation, KWD Pine tends to be more affordable than some other types of wood, making it an economical choice for construction projects.

With a reduced lead time, a lower CO2 footprint, and high-performing, beautiful wood that is readily available, we are ushering in a new era of wood technology that not only improves the way the wood is used in society in general but also makes a positive impact by reducing the use of chemicals and preserving natural resources

Welcome to a new era of wood modification technology, where innovation meets sustainability and beauty and durability coexist.
