OUR TECHNOLOGY

Manufacturing processes

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).

Advantages

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.

Our Factory

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.

Sample calculation

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. 

OUR TREATMENT OPTIONS

Woodsafe Exterior® Fire-X™

Woodsafe Exterior® Fire-X™ fire protection treatment is unique in every way. Woodsafe Exterior® Fire-X™ gives architects the freedom to create and downstream users the right conditions to use different species of wood in exterior and damp environments, without requiring any additional protective coating such as a coating of facade paint. Woodsafe Exterior® Fire-X™ provides a permanent waterproof fire treatment that allows the wood to age naturally, an advantage when using it in a wood facade, cladding for balconies, attics, roofs, ceilings, canopies, underground environments (e.g. in mining), offshore environments, etc. READ MORE


Woodsafe FirePRO™

Woodsafe's standard fire protection treatment for exterior and interior applications. Solid wood and plywood materials treated with Woodsafe FirePRO™ can be finished using several different systems, e.g. lacquer, stain and topcoat, without losing performance standards such as B-s1, d0. Woodsafe FirePRO™ can be used in multi-storey wood facades and balconies that will be painted, indoor wall and ceiling coverings, construction, applications for acoustics (e.g. furring, perforated plywood, wrapping, offshore, trains, trucks, etc.).

Partners

Woodsafe Timber Protection do not themselves sell wood or treated wood products. Sales take place through premium partners and retailers. Our services consist of subcontracted treatment services to actors in the timber industry and our availability of services is presented under Stockists. Woodsafe-treated wood and plywood are not stock items and delivery times may therefore vary depending on the season and on the species of wood and quality required. Some plywood is available as a stock item from our premium partners.

Construction documents often describe a brand and performance standard with the extension, "or similar product". It is important to understand that these similar products are not B-s1,d0 and do not have the same test results. A similar product means that the treatment and the manufacturer must hold a license/certification for the entire production chain.
