About DURAPine Wood
Our Sylvester pine (Pinus sylvestrus) timber is harvested in the cold Northern European Forests. The extreme weather conditions and slow growth time allows for a very dense and straight material.
Sylvester pine is receptive to a range of penetrative treatment options. This means that we can chemically protect the timber for its intended use. Unlike hardwoods which usually cannot accept a penetrative treatment.
All of our timber is FSC certified meaning that all trees are managed in an environmentally sustainable fashion.
DURAPine TREATMENT PROCESS & CLASSIFICATION
In order to obtain the Class 4 certification under European Construction Standard CTB-B+, the timber has to go through a pressure treatment process, also known as Autoclave, as demonstrated below.
The result is a very strong and durable material ideal for our tropical conditions.
CTB-B+ treated timber ensures the structure is resistant to wood-boring insects and wood-rotting fungi. CTB-B+ is the guarantee for the implementation of quality treatment validated by FCBA and a controlled impregnation process.
OUR DURAPine IS CELCURE-C4
