Wood protection against changing weather

Wood surfaces should be protected against sunlight, rain and humidity. Surface treatment – both on the inside and outside – is best done as soon as possible after assembly. Before this, however, it is important to ensure that any moisture from rain during storage and erection has evaporated from the goods. Then select a good surface treatment agent from the numerous products available. The features of agents vary depending on the humidity and temperature conditions in each country, which is why we suggest you make use of local expertise when selecting surface treatment for wood products. Surface treatment must be repeated, as instructed, to ensure that the wood remains healthy long and also serves future generations.

The surface can be left colourless, which makes it agelessly beautiful and helps it blend in with nature as such. Some find that a transparent coating that enhances the grain of wood makes the surface look even better. The surface can also be treated with an opaque agent.
