The mark is a sign of quality for producers of wall, ceiling and roof elements. The quality of built-in materials that need to be certified is subject to internal control and also to independent, external control twice a year. Materials and their installation are both controlled. We only install certified wood with controlled moisture. According to the standard, the required wood moisture content is 15 ± 3% as wood with moisture content below 20% and installed in dry area is resistant to fungi and insects. In this case, the activity of wood is lower as well.
