Drying Room

This is an acclimatised room in order to allow wood to dry naturally. Taking advantage of favourable climate conditions, external air and the air inside the room automatically flow in and out. When the climate is not so favourable, the same air circulates around the room. In this way, an air current flows around the strategically stacked tree trunks, but with humidity and temperature maintained at ideal levels for long term natural drying of the wood, which will lead to slow contraction of the wood, avoiding damage to its molecular fibres and the loss of physical and mechanical properties. This process is totally different to that in industry, where wood is forced to dry in the space of a few months at the expense of its quality.
