Wood Hybrid Systems

Sustainable alternatives to tropical hardwood

Composite wood products are a long-term alternative when it comes to wooden exterior constructions.

As Geolam places particular attention to quality and natural appearance, it was evident to ally directly with the Japanese inventors of the wood composite and to benefit in this way from know-how and experience acquired over the last forty years.

Although Geolam planks look and feel like real wood, they are inherently much more resistant than tropical wood. Moreover, Geolam products are helping to conserve the world’s rainforests and the environment in general since its manufacture does not involve cutting down trees, and treating and maintaining it causes no secondary pollution.

Natural beauty enabled by technology

The qualities of rare tropical hardwoods served as yardsticks in developing the Geolam wood composite. Nishibori Sadao took recycled softwood and recycled polymer resin (polypropylene) to create a material that can now look back on four decades of refinement and whose defining features include a natural wood look coupled with outstanding durability. This was the dawning day of the ‘wood-polymer composite’ (WPC), a material that also satisfies the highest ecological standards. Inspired by nature.

What are wood hybrid systems?

Geolam wood hybrid systems combine two commonly used building materials to create a new product with unique attributes. These two materials are composite wood and aluminum. Composite wood consists of a mix of recycled hardwood and plastic and acts as a substitute to threated tropical wood types. Below the composite wood coating lays a strong aluminum structure that gives the wood hybrid system additional strength and durability. Combining aluminum and composite wood, creates a visually appealing yet versatile and resistant building material with many possible applications.
