An urban, sustainable and social housing, with a flame retardant protection (Woodsafe Exterior WFX™) which is carbon-neutrally produced, the cladding consists of Thermowood-D pine. In Uppsala's new district, Genova creates housing with sustainability, design and function in focus. In the woodhouse block there are several buildings that are flame retardant protected with Woodsafe Exterior WFX™, and one of them is the Botanikern.

In line with climate goals, this fantastic building has been fitted with a façade cladding which is flame retardant treated with Woodsafe Exterior WFX™, for a natural aging process. The façade cladding meets the requirements for SP-Fire 105, SS-EN16755 EXT and is CE certified in accordance with European Construction Product Regulation CPR 305/2011. In this project, Woodsafe has, on behalf of a partner, performed flame retardant treatment on the cladding consisting of Thermowood Pine-D.
