The Product

TERGAO equals hardwood


TERGAO is a very dense composite material made from very long bamboo fibers and a synthetic resin. It has the appearance and technical properties of the best hardwood species.
TERGAO  is defect free and  easy to work with using standard woodworking tools.

Thanks to the newly introduced law - the EU Timber Regulation (EUTR) - the import of illegally logged wood into the EU became prohibited on 3 March 2013. The regulation prohibits the trading of illegally harvested timber and timber products, and from placing them onto the market.

TERGAO is a great alternative to explore as it is durable, sustainable and legally available.
