Furniture

from Arundo

High-end furniture does not have to be made from hard-wood, in fact, more efficient alternatives are taking over the market 

Why should we use alternatives?

Environmentally friendly options

With plants such as Arundo having similar strengths to some types of hard-wood, fast growing plants will quickly outgrow the popularity of wood. This is an ideal scenario, as Arundo is not only more cost-efficient, but its eco-friendly character protects the environment.

Disadvantages of wood

Hard-wood is not the best choice for furniture production. Wood-destroying pests such as termites or powder-post beetles are common and damage wood beyond repair. Wood is also sensitive to environmental conditions including heat, sunlight and moisture.

Familiar technology

Utilising alternatives for furniture production is not a mysterious subject. The technology used for compressing fibres of wood to make boards is very similar to what is used for alternatives. There is no need for major investments to prepare wood alternatives.

Why ARUNDO Energy Reed?

Arundo boards with particle sizes of 2-4 mm are of the best parameters.

Arundo has the best MOE and MOR figures of non-woody materials and compares to the ones of woods in many cases (better than poplar or spruce).

Multilayer structure can double the mechanical properties of the board reaching P1 classified board category of the UNE EN 312:2003 standard, meaning it is suitable for indoor use.

Arundo needs ca. 2/3rd of the adhesive material compared to wood which has cost and environmental benefits.
