  Along the 5 km beach promenade between Ahlbeck and Bansin in Usedom, Germany, a total of five beach walks were renewed with Kebony Scots Pine decking.

Two of the five walks also serve as roads, so that the local fishermen and maintenance vehicles can drive on the beach. The supporting structure was created from recycled plastic, while Kebony was chosen for the visible surfaces and handrails because of its hardness and durability.

At the entrance road between Heringsdorf and Ahlbeck, a new wheelchair-friendly toilet block was created by the community. Berlin based de+ architekten were commissioned for this project. Designing, planning and manufacturing took 18 months and was partly funded by the EU.

Kebony's wood modification process tripled the Scot's Pine's Brinell hardness (N / mm2) and the durability class according to EN-350 increased from 3-4 to 1-2. Other Kebony wood species, such as Radiata, also adopt characteristics that are normally only found in tropical timber. All Kebony wood species develop a natural silver patina after exposure to sun and rain while still preserving their properties.

Floor coverings and boardwalks in Kebony are ideal for public beaches because they offer the appeal of classic beachside character, while withstanding even the harshest Northern climate.
