Timber is the only natural renewable resource available to mankind. A timber structure has a much lower carbon footprint than structures using other materials. Its high strength to weight ratio and insulating properties makes it the ideal material for construction projects. However, Unprotected Timber can be a source of food for fungi and wood-boring insects such as Furniture beetles, Longhorn beetles and termites. For the Asia Pacific, the main pests for timber are subterranean termites and dry wood termites. They do the most damage to timber. Therefore it is essential that timber is protected with “Solignum Timberlife wood protection system” to ensure full protection against wood-boring insects and fungi decay throughout the service life of the project.
