Thermally Modified for Sustainability, Durability, and Iconic Beauty.
ICON™ achieves its superior performance without the use of any chemicals. Our innovative thermal modification process uses only heat and pressure to transform the wood.
Our advanced thermal modification process, a closed pressurized system, reduces the moisture content uniformly in the wood. It is transformed faster and at lower temperatures than previous technologies. The result is a product that is more stable, more durable, decay resistant, insect resistant, with a rich, cedar-tone appearance.
Every piece of ICON™ is inspected to make sure it is 100% usable. Our company has a long history of ensuring our customers always receive material that exceeds their expectations.
We start with the highest quality wood available, CVG (Clear Vertical Grain) Douglas Fir. Despite a significant reduction in the moisture content, ICON™ still retains its “life”. Everyone who works with wood knows this quality is critical. If the wood has no “life” it means it is hardened, brittle and likely to split, check, and crack.
Through thermal modification ICON™ increases durability and dimensional stability. It reduces warping, cupping, and twisting due to seasonal expansion and contraction cycles. It will perform in the most demanding environments and comes with a 25-year warranty.
Beginning with the harvesting of the wood and throughout its processing, our intention is to make a product which meets the guideline for sustainability. In addition to strict forestry practices, our modern closed system has a carbon footprint 4 times smaller than conventional systems.
