Woodsafe climate concept at World Expo

Woodsafe:   With the support from the wood climate concept ALL-in-ONE, Sweden was able to present the landmark "The Forest" in the Swedish pavilion. Before re-emerging in Dubai, the Forest has been on growth in the deep forests of Sweden for over 100 years.

Sustainable development of Woodsafe Timber Protection and is embedded in a wood climate concept that embraces respectful use of nature’s resources and diversity in a sustainable value chain. With the help of wood climate concept ALL-IN-ONE, Sweden was able to present the landmark “The Forest” in the Swedish pavilion. Sweden has strong traditions in sustainable forestry, which serves modern wood-working industries with timber of highest grades. Due to its low carbon footprint, there is an ever-growing demand for increased use of wood in areas where it historically has not been considered. Especially in areas where fire safety is an issue. The World Expo Forest is the perfect example. How was it possible to raise an almost 100% wooden construction on a site where it is not allowed to build in wood at all?

Since 2011 Woodsafe and Bäckegårds have successfully combined their climate awareness, experience and knowledge into ALL-in-ONE concept. Woodsafe Timber Protection contributes with state-of-the-art knowledge in flame retardant treatment and Backegards with all the knowledge needed to produce various wooden products that cope with the flame retardant treatment. We refer to this as an ALL-in-ONE concept. Buying into our solution is buying into a well-proven concept where many years of experience are combined into great looking products with leading fire safety properties at minimized risk.
