Fossilized timber with naturally flame and rot protection
Swedish OrganoWood® is a modified timber where silicon compounds are bonded to the wood fibers. Instead of killing fungi and micro-organisms, the silicon compounds create physical barrier that prevents fungi from eating the timber, while at the same time providing effective flame resistance.
OrganoWood has been developed by multiaward-winning OrganoClick AB, in partnership with researchers at Stockholm University and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. The awards have included Best Environmental Innovation 2008, Most Promising Start-up of the Year 2008 and Climate Solver, a prestigious accolade from WWF in 2010. Our timber has been put through its paces in a number of independent tests carried out by SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden. In addition, to excellent results in terms of flame and rot resistance, our timber is also harder than unmodified timber. The sourced wood is selected from slow-growing, high quality forest in northern Sweden. Our range includes both pre-treated timber and wood protection products in tins. The timber requires minimal maintenance and does not need oiling. In addition, it retains its natural color and over time takes on an attractive silver-grey shade that lends a particularly authentic feel.
