Staves Design Royal.
Bavarian has a beautiful golden-brown color. The tree is one of the most eco-friendly and sustainable, since it only takes approx. 24 years for the tree to mature before the wood can be felled/harvested, unlike many other species where it can take between 80-100+ years.
Radiata Pine is naturally very light in colour, however At SPEKVA we engineer and pressure treat the wood with a water-based compound of proteins and amino acids. This process transfers it from a soft, to a hard wood (similar in density to oak).
To alter the colour from a natural light/blonde, to warm golden-brown…a colouring is added to this compound which is obtained from ground-down flower petals. Amino acids are already an important part of our daily diet, meaning the composition is completely harmless to humans.
The staining runs all the way through the timber so that the worktop, bar counter or the like can be cut, sanded and repaired on-site without giving any visible discoloration.
