WOOD PROTECTION STARTS WITH CONSTRUCTIVE CONSIDERATIONS
Preventive wood protection for Facades includes not only choosing the right wood species for a specific application but also implementing constructive measures.
To ensure their success, the following basic rules should be observed:
Maintain a low wood moisture content, according to the surrounding climate.
Keep water away and ensure rapid drainage.
Provide sufficient ventilation.
Protect vulnerable load-bearing components.
Guard against end-grain exposure.
Maintain adequate distance from ground surfaces.
Wooden components in contact with the ground present significant challenges in construction. Particularly at junction points, it is crucial for water not to accumulate but to drain away quickly. Therefore, the durability of an outdoor wood construction largely depends on the rapid drainage of rainwater and the swift drying of the structure.
Preventing water accumulation at the bottom edges of components is essential. A drip edge with a minimum inclination of 15 degrees ensures rapid drainage. To protect wood from splash water damage, wood elements near the ground should have at least 30 cm of distance from the ground surface. Vented constructions have proven effective in facade construction, where the wood cross-section is exposed to air circulation, allowing for optimal drying. It goes without saying that SECA wood facades comply with all these constructive protective measures to the best extent possible.
