All Swallow greenhouses are now made from Thermowood.
Heat and steam are used to thermally modify the wood to produce an exceptionally strong and durable wood that is perfect for outdoor use.
This process is achieved using natural methods and is non-toxic and chemical free, with one of the many benefits being improved insulation well suited for greenhouses.
After treatment the wood is a beautiful consistent colour that will last far longer than normal treated timber.
