Sustainable lumber company Kirei recently announced the debut of Windfall, a beautiful new addition to its line for 2012. Made from deconstructed buildings, Windfall is a reclaimed wood engineered panel that can be used for wall coverings, casework, signage, and similar applications.
Kirei Windfall panels are engineered from Douglas fir, hemlock and pine, taken from demolished industrial and agricultural buildings in the Pacific Northwest, which otherwise would be destined for landfills. They are made in the USA in partnership with Windfall Lumber using low-VOC adhesives and natural raw materials with striking variations in the grain.
The reclaimed wood carries 100% FSC Mixed Credit certification, and can also help building projects earn LEED credits in a number of categories, including Recycled Content, Low-Emitting Materials, and Regional Materials (within 500 miles of Tumwater, Washington).
Windfall comes in 27" x 96" (solid) or 48" by 96" (3-ply with NAUF/FSC core) panels, all 3/4" thick. The new line is available in several colors — unfinished, clear, anthracite, mocha, ivory, and leather.
