Tropical hardwood alternative based on wood modification

Foreco Dalfsen b.v. (Foreco) has developed a new environmental friendly wood modification technique. Based on wood modification Foreco introduced NobelWood®, an award-winning alternative for tropical hardwood. It offers durable and sustainable production methods and products. The Dutch institute for building and ecology (NIBE) performed an indicative assessment to determine the environmental impact of NobelWood®. They concluded that usage of bio-polymerized wood has less impact on the environment than comparable building solutions and awarded Foreco with their trademark DUBOKEUR (

100% renewable building material

Fast growing softwood sourced in sustainably managed forest areas, based on the FSC certification program, is treated with new modification techniques. It offers high quality wood products that can be used for cladding and other exterior applications. Products are available in a range of standard sizes and profiles. These can be supplied either machined to specified dimensions and patterns or as solid sections that can be machined, as required. Treated products are compatible with the fire retardant treatments of SafeWood® and SafeWood® Select. Further possibilities include application of coating systems, offering extended design possibilities.

NobelWood FRX

In corporation with Lonza Wood Protection, Foreco has developed fire retardant timber products which comply with Construction Products Regulation. With NON-COM Exterior Lonza offers weatherproof, fire retardant protection without losing the natural appearance. Current development made it possible to use NON-COM Exterior on NobelWood; resulting in NobelWood FRX. This risk free new material can be used at large façade projects without the need for maintenance or coatings.

NobelWood FRX is a beautiful and unique product where two different modification techniques are combined. First pine wood is modified to make it an alternative solution for tropical hardwood; secondly the maintenance free fire retardant treatment makes it safe and easy applicable for cladding purposes. This timber provides a natural appearance incorporating durability, safety and sustainability.
Since it is maintenance free costs can be saved which provides a cheaper solution in the long term. Also the fire safety complying with the Construction Products Regulation can be assured for long term.

With this new and unique product the Dutch market is leading in the timber industry with modified, bio-based and fire retardant products.
NobelWood and NobelWood FRX are already applied by famous designers and architects.
