Platowood Spruce is pinewood originating from responsibly maintained forests in Northern Europe. This fast-growing softwood is FSC certified and has a lively patterned surface aesthetic.
In the Netherlands, spruce is traditionally used in basic construction, but due to the unique finishing process of Platowood (platonizing) the wood changes into a type of wood with a high sustainability and a great dimensional stability. During the platonizing process, the white-yellowish natural color of spruce wood is transformed into a beautiful brown color.
Typically found in Platowood Spruce is the presence of knots, these may include a little crack or star. Furthermore resin pockets are allowed, as well as other smaller linings on the wood. All these features provide Platowood Spruce with a lively and natural look and feel. When left untreated, the wood will age beautifully and evenly. For more information, check CE Label Spruce.
