What is Patented Reinforced Torsion Box Core?

Patented Reinforced Torsion Box Core is an Eco-friendly structurally sound composite core building material which is more lightweight, high strength and dimensionally stable than any other traditional building material.

The basic structure consists of a vertical grain torsion box grid with the otherwise empty voids filled with recycled rigid foam insulation and sandwiched between two sheets of wood veneer stress skins using formaldehyde-free adhesives.
