HWZ International - Wood solutions South Africa


Description and main purpuse of use

SECA combines 100 years’ tradition of family owned business and the resulting depth of experience with innovation fuelled by constant contact with partners: both at the supply and at the market end.

Standard range of wood profiles is available in various different woods and sizes; it covers profiles for ceilings and walls, solid wood floors, structural timber and attractive decking for terraces.

Most common wood species used for SECA profiled timber

  • Spruce is a good solution for the interior and for facades which are not directly exposed to weather (in South Africa).
  • Siberian larch is generally considered as a very durable wood species. The slightly red surface turns grey after being exposed to weather without using a surface treatment.
  • Thermic treated pine is very durable solution for outdoor using. The manufacturing process of Thermo-Wood is based on the use of high temperature (185-225 °C) and steam. The process improves dimensional stability and biological durability of wood.
