Our aim is to create new opportunities for the wider and more sustainable use of thermally modified wood, including in buildings with a higher fire resistance class, to promote environmentally sustainable and resource-efficient management, and to contribute to reducing CO₂ emissions.

To achieve this goal, we have created a subsidiary BestNoFire and started cooperation with Danish company BURNBLOCK®. 

We have invested in purpose-built vacuum pressure equipment, which allows us to impregnate products of different wood species and processing levels. The central idea of the treatment is to use vacuum pressure to absorb a certain amount (kg/m3) of fire retardant into the wood. The whole process is computer controlled and all operations are recorded.

  • BURNBLOCK® is not a surface treatment, but a full cross-sectional compression damping that ensures wood products meet Class B fire resistance for the long term. 
  • Products impregnated with BURNBLOCK® fire retardant do not require any subsequent surface treatment to protect against leaching of the retardant.
  • The BURNBLOCK® fire retardant we use is 100% natural, biodegradable, pH-neutral, non-corrosive and has been awarded Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Gold level certification.
  • BURNBLOCK® fire-retardant impregnated timber significantly extends the time between ignition and flash point, thereby providing additional time for occupants to evacuate in the event of a fire and reducing the speed of fire spread and the cost of damage.

Long-lasting thermally modified wood products with BURNBLOCK® fire retardant impregnation create many new possibilities for modern wooden buildings, e.g., in public buildings such as schools, kindergartens, nursing homes, etc.
