Accessories for the Cumaru substructure
The background of our Cumaru substructure
The sustainable origin
Our Cumaru decking boards and Cumaru substructure come from FSC®®-certified forests in the Madre Dios region of Peru. Through our Latin American branch, we personally control the quality and independent experts check whether no pesticides are used, biodiversity is preserved and only as much wood is removed as will grow back in the same period. It is also checked whether the lumberjacks and the employees in the sawmill in Lima receive fair wages. The transport from Latin America to our warehouse in Nümbrecht is climate-neutral.
The hardest type of wood
Cumaru is one of the most durable woods in the world. It is used in South America to build bridges and to build jetties in the water. It is therefore also extremely well suited as a stable and durable substructure for wooden terraces. According to the DIN standard, Cumaru is classified in resistance class 1 and thus achieves a minimum service life of 25 years outdoors. Its resilience, resistance and load-bearing capacity allow Cumaru to be used to create particularly durable wooden terraces.
