Let's go!

OrganoWood is a revolution in the timber industry. Providing sustainable, safe and durable timber which is resistant to fire, it is an ecological choice for wood to meet your safety requirements. It has transformed the industry’s view of Pine, and created an affordable, sturdy timber from one of the most abundant trees in the world.

At EcoChoice, we source high-quality OrganoWood for a range of applications, providing you with a renewable material for your construction project.

What is OrganoWood?

OrganoWood is made from Nordic Pine, a common timber which is well-known for its affordability but has not always been known for its durability – until now. Using Silica – a natural material also known as Silicon Dioxide – to coat Pine, OrganoWood increases the durability and fire resistance of the timber, creating a great solution for a wider range of exterior purposes, without the need for tanalith and other harsh chemical impregnation.

We have teamed up with OrganoWood to bring this revolutionary timber technology to the UK market. Our experts can provide you with OrganoWood decking and cladding which has been pre-treated in their factory in Sweden. We also stock bottles of their surface treatment liquids so that you can treat timber you already have installed, bringing some of the OrganoWood magic to your existing constructions.

OrganoWood Uses

OrganoWood has a wide range of uses in the timber industry. Its two main applications are decking and cladding, bringing a lightweight, hard-wearing and beautiful timber to your exterior projects. For any other project you have in mind, get in touch with our team and we can advise you on whether OrganoWood is a suitable timber for your design.

The Problem OrganoWood Solves

In its untreated state, Pine is a non-durable timber which is not much use for high-traffic exterior areas. Previously, it was treated with poisonous, toxic substances to increase its service life. These include:

  • Creosote
  • Arsenic
  • Chrome
  • Copper

All these are heavy metal biocides which are incredibly hazardous to the environment and our health, and some of them have even been banned for their toxicity. But, without treatment, Pine is unsuitable for most external construction projects as it will naturally rot. This is where OrganoWood comes in, offering a safe, sustainable alternative which improves the durability of Pine to last longer and perform better.

Award-Winning Wood

By using a natural, non-toxic mineral to protect and enhance the timber, alongside improving its resistance to fire, OrganoWood have created a truly revolutionary product. In timber terms, these scientists have just invented the lightbulb!

Their innovation has won the company multiple awards in Scandinavia and can be seen in a number of contemporary, high-profile architectural projects, including The Manchester House, BRF Etaget and Aarhus Harbor Bath.

What Is OrganoWood?

OrganoWood is the future of environmentally friendly timber protection, enhancing the wood’s properties to create a more durable, safe construction material. Using bio-mimicry techniques, the OrganoWood team created a technology which mimics the natural fossilisation process, creating a wood which is naturally designed to last and is resistant to decay. By impregnating a protective silicon compound directly into the fibres of the wood, they have discovered a way to naturally extend the lifespan of the timber without the use of harsh chemicals.

OrganoWood is mainly used for decking and cladding projects.

Find OrganoWood at EcoChoice

Made in Sweden, OrganoWood has not always been easily available to the UK market. Now, though, we make it easy to source this durable, ecologically modified timber for your construction projects, wherever you are in Britain. Working directly with OrganoWood, we can deliver their pre-treated timber in a range of profiles directly to your construction site, ready to be installed.

We also deliver OrganoWood’s treatment solutions, which can be applied to already installed timber to provide excellent protection and enhance any wood’s properties.

A Sustainable Solution

Previously, timber was treated with harmful chemicals such as Copper, Chromium and Arsenic. These heavy metal biocides were designed to kill the fungi and micro-organisms which usually attack the wood. However, these poisonous compounds could also leach into the surrounding environment. Over time, some of the components used were so harmful that they were banned from use by the UK government.

OrganoWood’s unique and revolutionary approach of using Silicon Dioxide (Silica) to treat the timber is a much healthier, eco-friendly alternative. Entirely natural, it is not toxic to human health or the surrounding environment, whilst effectively improving the wood’s flame resistance and resistance to fungal attacks.

Minimal Maintenance

Aside from the durability perks, OrganoWood is also incredibly low maintenance. Your timber will not need oiling and will weather over a quicker time to an attractive silver-grey which is very much in demand. It looks like authentic, natural timber (which it is) but now it has the properties of treated wood.

OrganoWood Projects

OrganoWood has currently been used to design buildings across a range of industries, including:

  • Schools
  • Public projects
  • Hotels
  • Housing

In the UK, you can see OrganoWood in action at the PassivHaus project in Manchester and a school project in London. Find out more about how it is transforming the world of decking or order your own OrganoWood to see the benefits in action.
