Siberian Larch is a rare type of wood: it will retain its qualities without any chemical processing or finishing for centuries. It is one of the most durable types of wood in terms of weather conditions, primarily due to its unique gum content.
The gum is distributed very evenly between the fibres of the wood, which has an antiseptic effect, protecting it against moisture and insects. Larch is more weather-proof than the majority of local wood types. Over time its resilience and density will only grow. Thanks to its high gum content, Siberian larch can be used in its natural form. That is why it makes a perfect alternative to impregnated wood for outdoor use.
Siberian larch is also one of the best solutions when there are strict requirements regarding formaldehydes, as in products designed for children, for example wooden playground equipment.
Siberian larch is a highly ecological, people-friendly and warm building material. It is widely used in Europe in the construction of terraces and as a covering material for the facades of buildings. It is virtually irreplaceable in situations where chemical finishing of wood is not permitted but its durability in all weather conditions must be guaranteed.
