The cities of the future will be constructed of wood

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.

Visionary wooden 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.

Earth Tones

Sioo:x wood protection panel colours are based on the same patented technology that reinforces and extends the life of the wood. The panel colours provide a grey scale in six shades from cloud grey to charcoal.

Sustainable construction in wood requires effective wood protection with long durability that should be maintenance-free as far as possible. With this as a starting point, and taking a global perspective, Sioo Wood Protection have developed a patented wood protection product.


Sioo:x wood protection provides effective multi-protection against the forces of nature, regardless of climate. Wooden constructions face a range of challenges depending on their location in the world, so we have concentrated on research and development in order to become a leading actor with a foundation of tests and evidence. This helps us recommend and guide both architects and construction companies in their choice of wooden constructions and wood types.

Sioo:x essentially consists of a unique combination of silicon and potassium

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:

 

  • Sun and UV radiation
  • Rain, frost and snow
  • Rot
  • Moss and mould
  • Termites and pests

 

* Read more about in the article “Evidence and testing”.

Research and development

  • Sioo Wood Protection is a member of Horizon 2020, the biggest research and innovation programme within the EU.
  • Vinnova, the Swedish innovation authority, has financed a number of research projects upon which our company is based.
  • We are members of FSC and PEFC, which work to achieve sustainable, environmentally-appropriate forestry.
  • Wood reinforced and protected by Sioo:x helps buildings fulfil requirements set for environmental buildings and Nordic Ecolabel certified construction projects.
