Industrially certified fire proofing treatment via a vacuum pressure treatment process to solid wood and plywood. Our services are covered by Type approval certification, CE certification in accordance with CPR 305/2011 and are subject to third place production control by the SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden (0402).
Woodsafe treated wood has inherent fire retardant characteristics. This means that the wood meets performance requirements for outer surfaces, cladding and facades of apartment buildings. Fire safety characteristics are found deep in the material and on all sides, allowing the installation of air gaps or furring, perforations etc. Actual performance in relation to wood species is presented in a separate table and certified.
All treatment takes place in our own factory located in Västerås. Our resources consist of two industrially controlled vacuum pressure chambers, which according to the wood preservation industry constitute the only process technology that guarantees quality long lasting performance. Application of fire retardant and humidity regulation takes place in four specially designed drying chambers.
Did you know that fire requirements cover the entire product, i.e. all sides? Not one, two or three sides, as many believe, especially in cases of procurement where the price often determines the choice of product. By choosing Woodsafe you always get a wood product that is fireproof on four sides. When performing calculations, other methods/products must be compared to the price for four-sided fire protection and no requirement for renewal of the fire retardant.
