The northern pine is a great raw material for both playground and exercise equipment and park furniture.
Wood is an ecological, environmentally friendly, and renewable natural resource. Forests are active carbon sinks that reduce carbon dioxide concentrations. Wood is also an excellent material from a design perspective, as it can be formed into many different shapes and can support both tall and heavy structures. As an organic material, wood is well suited to a very broad range of climatic conditions, from harsh northern winters to the southern sun and humid coastal areas.
Untreated wood is susceptible to rot. In order to ensure the long life of our playground equipment, we use a closed process to treat our wood with environmentally friendly preservatives. Thanks to this environmentally friendly protective treatment, our wooden products will have a very long life if regularly maintained. The timber used in Lappset’s products comes from Finnish, PEFC-certified commercial forests. Thanks to our Chain of Custody certificate, we can assure chain of custody management for our raw materials from the woodlot to our factory.
For us Finns, managing forests in accordance with the principles of sustainable development is a matter of course. Learn more about climate-wise forest management by watching the Metsähallitus video below.
