Solid core profiles

DuraSense® Solid core by Stora Enso is a patented product (SE 538 877 C2) for multiple uses. It is a sustainable alternative to impregnated wood or PVC products that will last you a lifetime. Our solution is optimised for outdoor use with a patented skin formulation.

Solid core profiles are made of thermally treated wood with an outdoor-optimised biocomposite skin for long-term protection. It makes it strong, durable and offers close to zero moisture uptake. Compared to impregnated wood the DuraSense® biocomposite solution is a sustainable alternative without any harmful chemicals.

The profiles can be produced in a great variety of colours. Bright red is not recommended for outdoor use as the pigments tend to fade. However, red can well be used, for example, for indoor stable profiles.
