FSC certified timber on display in Auckland
Congratulations to Abodo for their Showroom opening
This week Abodo celebrated their 15th year anniversary, along with the official opening of their factory and showroom which displays their FSC certified timber ranges.
The Auckland showroom features another first by exterior wood specialist Abodo; an exterior CLT panel made exclusively from thermally modified radiata pine.
The CLT panel is made up of hundreds of 150×50 sections of Abodo’s Vulcan Cladding – a thermally modified radiata pine product, which is engineered with a consistent vertical grain for superior weathering.
The CLT panel at 3.0m high, 2.5m wide and 150mm thick is being used for Abodo’s new showroom and factory sign, at 62 Ascot Rd, Mangere, Auckland. The panel itself was pressed, and the Abodo logo CNC routered by Xlam in Nelson.
“We have built our new showroom sign from solid engineered thermally modified pine, as a testament to our belief in new generation wood technology – we will monitor the performance of the sign over time, with a view to commercialise exterior CLT for specific applications in the future” states Marketing Director and Founder, Daniel Gudsell.
FSC Australian and New Zealand attended the opening celebration and were lucky enough to draw a prize, a beautifully crafted Abodo timber surfboard made of Radiata Pine, designed by Organic Dynamic.
