OrganoWood® 01 Protection offers timber flame and rot protection that meets European environmental and performance standards, with EN113 and EN 13501-1 certification for fire and rot protection respectively.

For external cladding installations, precautions should also be considered to protect the timber from water, fungus and dirt.
