The primary reason for this is related to climate change; wood is a sustainable construction material that stores carbon dioxide. It’s also a recyclable material that can be reused in new constructions or transformed into energy through combustion.
We have a shared responsibility to find a solution for creating a more sustainable world, with the insight that, as the cement and steel industries cause 8% of global carbon dioxide emissions, we need new standards for construction.
Sioo:x must be a driving force to create change, and we aim to work with innovative architects and construction companies to facilitate sustainable construction with high quality architecture.
Sioo Wood Protection wants to help create good architecture in high quality wood. So we are highly focused on creating a wood protector that gives architects creative freedom in the creation process, enabling them to achieve their architectonic vision. This applies regardless of whether the project is the world’s tallest wooden skyscraper or smaller wooden buildings being constructed cost-effectively in parts of the world where economic conditions are tough.
Sioo:x wood protection can be applied to almost all wood types and wooden construction techniques, and provides effective multi-protection against all climatic and weather conditions. Because Sioo:x provides dynamic multi-protection, wooden buildings and constructions treated with Sioo:x can be found in every corner of the world. We have extensive knowledge of the type of wood best suited to different climates. Within the Nordic region, fir panels are common, in central Europe Douglas fir, and in North America cedar, fir or pine are widely used.
Two natural substances found all around us and which together create a natural multi-protection similar to nature’s own wood protection.
Sioo:x protects against:
