Wood is a natural living element used for centuries by men. However, thanks to the application of modern technology it is introduced as a new material with great advantages and opportunities for the future. In addition to its natural features, with the autoclave treatment processes, it is a material with all the warranties for its external use, resulting in elements that are perfectly integrated into the landscape.

To speak about certified wood is to speak about sustainability as it is a natural element coming from forests managed in a controlled way – in which trees through photosynthesis set the atmosphere’s CO2 releasing the oxygen and using carbon, among other things, to create the wood and contributing on the prevention of global warming. It is a renewable material, as it is still produced in our forests. In this sense, PROTEC participates on the forest product safekeeping-chain by means of the PEFC system, committing to encouraging a sustainable forest management.

The energy consumption of wood production is relatively low, much lower than other materials’ such as concrete or steel. Moreover, with the treatment processes its durability increases exponentially, even in initially adverse conditions such as those external wood faces. Furthermore, the protective products used have proven their suitability and adequate environmental behavior and healthiness once Biocidas European regulations were applied.

BEAR IN MIND THAT…

Wood is a natural product and it breathes, which means that it can absorb humidity and then release it in dry environmental conditions. Thus, the appearance of cracks in the wood, as a result of this normal behavior typical of this material, is completely natural and doesn’t influence its static charge ability nor in its durability and so not offering a reasonable claim.

On the other hand, each piece of wood is unique and different in its structure or fiber conduction. Due to this difference in structure, the non-uniformity of the color in the wood is inevitable and part of its natural charm. The products that we offer have the maximum durability warranty with no need of subsequent maintenance or the application of other products. However, if the user wants to use them, they allow the application of other paints over them, lassures…
