By significantly enhancing the durability and dimensional stability of fast growing, abundantly available certified wood species, our modified timber provides compelling environmental advantages over scarce slow growing hardwoods, woods treated with toxic chemicals, and non-renewable carbon-intensive materials such as plastics, steel and concrete.
In order to assess the environmental impact of a material or product, all stages of its life cycle, from cradle to the grave, must be taken into account.
The modification production facility meets highest requirements with respect to health, safety and the environment and powered for over 50% by renewable energy.
The modification process is completely non-toxic and adds nothing to the wood that does not already naturally occur in it.
Made from legally harvested wood from well managed sustainable sources including FSC®, PEFCTM and other regionally certified timbers.
Enhanced durability, facilitating a longer lifespan, improved carbon sequestration potential and lower lifetime material consumption versus other materials.
CO2 negative over the full life cycle; therefore, an environmentally friendly substitute for tropical hardwood and materials from non-renewable resources.
This AC modified timber has been awarded multiple accreditations and eco-certifications further highlighting its unique sustainability properties.
