In using GCC (German Compact Composite), a wood-polymer material has been developed that is a true all-rounder. The composite primarily consists of 75 % wood fibres that undergo a patented process in order to supplement them with environmentally-friendly additives and polymers. The „Made in Germany“ material is free from PVC and is highly versatile. Thanks to their high resilience and low thermal expansions, GCC products always remain in top shape. As our material is wood-based, natural processes change the colour and feel over time. We deliberately refrain from chemical sealing and, instead, rely on the ability of the natural product to protect itself. Over 15 years of experience and development speak for the material; we don‘t make any promises we can‘t keep!
// climate-neutral production with renewable energy
// a closed material cycle results in permanent and useful carbon reservoirs
// more raw material conservation
// Enduring user experience
// Creating a safe and healthy environment for the home
// Our products meet the criteria for sustainable building and green building conformity with the DGNB System, LEED® and BREEAM®
If one thing is in our genes, then it is the Cradle to Cradle® principle. It describes a materials cycle, in which products or raw materials circulate within recurring cycles. We have been installing a special returns system since 2005 in order to ensure that our GCC wooden material products can be used. This enables us to retain and use existing material resopurces without a change of quality. This enables us to expand and produce construction productions that conform with the highest quality standard – without additional consumption of new natural raw materials.

GCC conforms to Cradle to Cradle Certified® Gold Standard*. Our GCC (German Compact Composite) material has been awarded the Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Gold. The certification is awarded by the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute. This means that our GCC material has received the confirmation that is both human and ecotoxicologically harmless as far as all of the contents are concerned at a global level of quality. The ecological evaluation of the integrated water management and the climate-neutral energy concept during production and the high level of social standards at our production site in Germany round off the comprehensive material and process evaluation in an integrated manner. GCC is therefore conforming with the highest eco-effectiveness standard.
Use the scouring powder to thoroughly clean your severly soiled torroTIMBER® terrace surfaces. It does not include any tensides or other chemicals and it also does not pose a risk to groundwater. 2 kg of scouring powder suf ce for approx. 20 m2. Do not apply to sensitive surfaces or mask them in advance, do not use on co-extruded terrace decks. Cleaning with scouring powder is carried out between steps 3 and 4 of the terrace care instructions. You will nd the instructions for use on the product label.
