More European White Oak To Love
reSAWN TIMBER co. is excited to announce that we’ve expanded our European white oak product offering. This luxurious sought-after species is known for its wider widths, a variety of deep brown tones tinged with light sapwood, and a distinctive grain pattern. reSAWN’s new finishes complement the character and tones of European oak by enhancing the natural appearance of the wood.
reSAWN’s European oak is offered in both select grade and character grade. Character grade material is ‘original cut’ which is the most efficient and effective approach of cutting since it utilizes the whole log. Logs are sliced directly through from the front to the back. The magnificence of original cut is that all of the various, one-of-a-kind cuts of hardwood are displayed – rift sawn, quarter sawn and plain sawn – as well as sapwood & heartwood where the ring patterns are tightest.
Select products can be specified in both Herringbone and Chevron styles. All designs are available as FSC® certified upon request.
HOK recently designed the expanded headquarters of Air Lease Corporation in Century City. The design included reSAWN’s WILLIWAW Alaskan Yellow Cedar that is sourced anywhere from Alaska to Oregon and intended to provide a high performing, natural material.
WILLIWAW can be used for interior or exterior wall cladding and is available in clear vertical grade. Clear vertical grade Alaskan yellow cedar contains few character marks.
It is durable, dimensionally stable, resistant to rot and insects, and has a light tan/gray, weathered look. WILLIWAW can be treated to Class A Fire Rating for Interior Applications – please call to inquire. For exterior applications, reSAWN recommends sealing the face and back.
Health Benefits of Wood Based Designs in Interior Applications
Americans spend a whopping 93 percent of their lives indoors breathing in recycled air. What most don’t realize is the air we breathe indoors is on average 2X to 5X more toxic than what we breathe outdoors due to insufficient ventilation, synthetic building materials, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from a variety of products and materials. Thus, for many people, the health risks related to indoor air pollution may be greater than that of outdoor exposure.
It’s not always feasible or practical to spend more time outdoors, especially in facilities like schools, hospitals, daycare facilities, and workplaces. Fortunately, we can take steps to minimize exposure to indoor toxins by choosing healthier, more sustainable products and building materials. Not only are they better for the environment, but some natural materials and products are proven to have physiological and psychological benefits for humans when brought indoors.
