TwinWood® innovative timber piling

The smart and high quality combination of softwood and hardwood ensures a strong construction and long life. That makes Twinwood® to the most ideal protection in wetland environments.

Durable construction

With TwinWood® softwood is placed below the waterline. The upper part above the waterline is constructed with hardwood. Softwood is durable in absence of oxygen, below the waterline. Tropical hardwood provides a durable construction for the upper part. Both parts are glued together using a high quality durable finger joint. This results in a product with a high bending strength. As a result constructions can be calculated using technical data based on spruce constructions.

Therefore TwinWood® provides a cheaper and more sustainable solution. Furthermore TwinWood® is relatively light, easy to install and available in various lenghts en thicknesses.
