ORGANOWOOD®: THE NEW NAME IN SUSTAINABLE WOOD PROTECTION
With a strong reputation in the Nordic countries, OrganoWood is the latest name to hit the wood treatment market in the UK. OrganoWood offers architects, professionals and end users the next generation of environmentally friendly wood protection. The complete system offers flame, rot and fungal protection, as well as extreme water and dirt repellence for any exterior wood surface. A tried and tested ecological alternative to pressure treated finishes, the OrganoWood solution is both aesthetically pleasing and sustainable, and is suitable for domestic and commercial use.
The OrganoWood wood protection system consists of OrganoWood® 01. Protection which offers rot and flame protection, OrganoWood® 02. Repellent to provide a dirt and water repellent surface and OrganoWood® 03. Cleaner, an organic wood cleaner for general and intensive cleaning and maintenance of the wood. For use on all exterior wood, including decking, cladding, fences and garden furniture, OrganoWood products are a low cost, sustainable alternative to chemical treatment. Through its proprietary technology, which mimics the natural fossilisation process, the wood is modified by the attachment of protective silicon compounds to the wood fibres. As well as protecting the wood, OrganoWood gradually ages with an aesthetically pleasing silver-grey hue over time.
“Following its success in the Nordic region, we are excited to launch this product range to the UK market,” comments Steve Grimwood, Managing Director of OrganoWood UK. “OrganoWood prides itself on providing the same long term wood treatment that is achieved through pressure treatment, minus the harmful ecological effects to the timber and environment alike. In the UK, architects, professionals and end users look favourably on environmentally friendly products, and the OrganoWood range ticks this box and many more. Launching OrganoWood allows us to provide this audience with a high quality product range that is reliable.”
Manufactured in Sweden, OrganoWood has employed some of nature’s own tricks to develop lasting, effective and unique wood protection that is entirely non-toxic - without the use of harmful heavy metals, biocides and solvents. OrganoWood products are classed as a Good Environmental Choice by the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation, one of the highest eco-classifications in the industry.
The test proven products from OrganoWood® meets all relevant European environmental and performance standards and has received EN113 and EN 13501-1 certification for rot and fire protection respectively. All OrganoWood® products are ecologically sustainable according to FSC® (FSC-C120532) and PEFC™ (05-35-168).
