megawood® endurance test
Oliver Roggisch, Team Manager of the German national handball team and Sport Director at the Rhein-Neckar Löwen team is convinced "megawood® is indestructible
– a brilliant material".
Oliver Roggisch is accustomed to sporting challenges: he has tackled several endurance tests over the course of his 16-year professional sporting career. A good enough reason for us to acquire the man standing over two metres tall to participate in the "megawood® endurance test by Oliver Roggisch" series and, together with him, to put our products through their paces. The former professional handball player has not only installed the DYNUM barefootboard in his garden; he also enjoys the benefits of the LIMES fencing system, plant containers, roof structures and play elements – and everything manufactured using a single material.
"I love everything that megawood® produces, I'm always completely satisfied and the products always look amazing"
explains Oliver Roggisch whilst giving the thumbs up.
megawood® – Koi-tested
"Two years ago, I saw the DYNUM barefootboard in Nigella in the megawood® magazine", says Oliver Roggisch. Since then, the floorboard has been used as a cover on the brush filter of the big Koi fan – the ultimate endurance test!
"The floorboards are located 20 cm away from the water, the water is never colder than 16 degrees which means that we experience moisture from beneath throughout the entire year, the floorboards are exposed to sunlight from above and temperatures reach 40 degrees on some days. These differences in temperature, combined with the moisture from beneath, are simply too much for solid wood floorboards."
megawood® beats Bangkirai
Oliver Roggisch searched high and low for a sustainable solution for his filter cover. "I tried everything on the market, with Bangkirai being the most common solution. After six months, it already showed signs of bulging and didn't look particularly good." However, the megawood® DYNUM barefootboard is different:
There's no distortion, the floorboards are completely straight and the quality is great. They also look good too."
Even after six months of use, nothing was able to harm the floorboards or the noble fish.Oli's test result: "If you own a koi pond, a swimming pool or anything in close proximity to water, the floorboard is exactly what you are looking for. Even when children are nearby. Free from softening agents, free from dangerous splinters, suitable for toys. All of this means that this product is exactly right for children, koi ponds, swimming pools, etc."
