Wood in public space
Treated wood extends service life
Durable wood according the NTR-system extends service life with several times and makes wood a very competitive building material. Long service life, cost effective, availability, safe and sustainable.
“Timber with long service life is the preferred material considering all aspects of sustainability. It is an misconception that wood preservatives is a threat to our health and environment. Modern durable treated timber, such as impregnated wood is safe to use.
Environmental certification- and classification systems such as Svanen often rates NTR marked wood as safe and preferred. Long expected service life and correct use together with efficient and modern wood preservatives is required. It saves recourses with only a small and acceptable environmental cost/risk.”
