Gabarró's new catalog includes products from its own brands, Wood Deck and Urban Deck, from brands with outdoor solutions exclusively distributed in Spain, Lunawood® and MACS® by LG Hausys, as well as brands Timbertech, UPM Profi and Polyrey.
Gabarró offers a wide range of possibilities for professionals working in outdoor installations and in the design of terraces or gardens with recommended solutions for outdoor use. The brands Lunawood®, Polyrey and HI-MACS® by LG Hausys also enable the cladding of exterior facades.
The catalog includes a detailed description and images of all wood species, both for indoor and outdoor, marketed by Gabarró, one of the widest ranges of wood in the national market.
The portofolio refers to the aged gray wooden boards for projects with rustic and vintage style, marketed by Gabarró. To achieve this aged effect, the wood, already sawn and unbrushed, is exposed for more than a year to the weather so that the sun, ultraviolet rays (UV), wind, rain and moisture oxidize it naturally, getting a grayish or silvery color, without using any type of dye or chemical product to artificially dye it.
Heat-treated fir and pine wood Lunawood® wood is ideal for wood construction and can be used in many outdoor applications, depending on the treatment to which it is subjected: façade cladding, floors, fences, terraces, noise barriers, garden furniture and even decks and edges of swimming pools. Constructive solutions respectful with the environment, natural and without any type of chemical additive, sustainable and with a natural and attractive aging despite the passage of time.
Lunawood® subjects wood to a combined cycle in which temperatures and different degrees of humidity alternate. This intensive thermal treatment transforms the structure and properties of wood, which reduces by 50% the natural tendency to bend, swell or shrink in wet conditions.
Regarding mechanized wood, the new catalog also includes different products such as wooden pallets, ribbons of tropical wood, tropical wood battens, slats of fir and pine wood, slats and strips of northern wood, laminated beams of fir glued, tongue and groove, profiles of north pine wood, rounds and pine stakes, pine sleepers, all designed as solutions for exterior design.
