The trend towards lightweight solutions is unbroken. Regenerative materials without any carbon footprint will be the future materials. The woodprocessing company Sperrholzwerk Schweitzer GmbH from Austria will present at the interzum a patented light-weight board made of wood and air - aerowood®. This light-weight panel is made of 100% wood coming from the region. aerowood® light-weight board can be used for any application requiring low weight and high stability. The big advantages of aerowood® are that the user gets the usual flexibilty in his daily production process: - free formatabel without any raster - when setting screws or when gluing edges no additional working steps or materials are needed The production process of the aerowood® core is a world novelty. The aerowood® core consists of rotary wave cut veneer which is crosswise glued to panels. According to functional requirements aerowood® light-weight panel will be produced 'light' or 'compact'. In the version aerowood® 'light' the corrugated structure is horizontally throughout the whole core. This structure gives on the one hand high flexural strengths and on the other hand the air within the wave channels gives very low weight. The version aerowood® 'compact' will be used for high compact requirements like construction applications. The waves will be turned vertically and so aerowood® compact is characterized by high pressure load and very good power dissipation. Optional customer's desired cover and decorative layers can be pressed framelessly onto the self-supporting aerowood® core. As easy and yield optimizing aerowood® light-weight board is throughout the application for processing, so it is resource-efficient in its own production. The resulting mountains and valleys when peeling the wave veneer form the air channels within the aerowood® -core. Consequently from 1 m³ wave veneer will be generated 1,4 m³ core material for aerowood® light-weight board.
Vintage-Style and Retro-Look hits also the furniture industry. The quality leader in producing bed slats, Sperrholzwerk Schweitzer GmbH from Austria, respond to this trend with Retro-Flex bed slats for optimized mattress suspension. Retro - back to the sustainable and proven material wood but newly combined. The Retro-Flex spring slat combines the positive qualities of two valuable wood species: thermically treated ash veneer on the upper side and beech peeling veneer as base material. Thermically modified ash veneers are resistant to moisture and other harmful influences to wood. Exactly these properties are important in humid bed climates. The surface of the bed slats is in permanent contact with textiles and here the thermically treated ash forms a natural moisture barrier to prevent mite formation. The low response to moisture gives the thermal ash and so the entire bed slat high dimensional stability. Due to treatment with resin the ring pores of ash appeare silvery and give every single Retro-Flex bed slat a unique, noble look. As base material the for decades proven beech veneer is used. Beech is a homogenous and very hard wood with excellent strength values that are retained under constant loads. And this is important for a stable and flexible sleeping base.
