Field testing of our products and wood protection processes

The quality of our products is continuously and systematically monitored and verified through field and laboratory performance tests, some of which have been ongoing for more than a decade. Testing of our products is carried out by domestic research institutions such as the Biotechnical Faculty, University of Ljubljana and the Slovenian National Building and Civil Engineering Institute (ZAG), as well as by a number of international independent research institutions around the world, such as the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und Prüfung – BAM (Germany), Bangor University (Wales, UK), the BioComposites Centre (Wales, UK), the Berner Fachhochschule – Architektur (Switzerland), College of Forestry –
