About Col Timbers PERFECTLY ENGINEERED Wood is perfectly crafted by nature. Col has taken this one step further by engineering the timber to create products that are both sustainable and beautiful in your home. Col products are laminated with waterproof adhesive to improve strength and stability. Finger-joints allow for longer lengths of clear timber, helps to minimise lateral movement and ensures the timber retains its natural beauty over time. SUSTAINABLE RESOURCE Timber is a sustainable and renewable resource. The more wood we use, the more forests we grow. Not only does wood bring warmth into your home, but it’s also the best choice for the environment. PINE Our pine is sourced from local plantations that are FSC ®-certified. FSC® certification ensures that products come from well-managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits. This aligns the vision of saving the world’s forests for future generations – Forests For All Forever ® HARDWOOD Our hardwood is sourced from sawmills internationally, where governments in these regions have implemented strict sustainability policies and compulsory harvesting programmes. These policies protect the environment and forest ecosystems as well as the interests of local communities.
