What are typical wood characteristics?
Wood is a natural and sustainable raw material. During the growth process each tree develops it’s own characteristic features. Typical wood features such as branches and grains make each piece of wood a genuine one of a kind. The distinctive natural features are deliberately accepted and do not constitute a defect.
Should I paint the wood?
No, you do not need to paint the wood. The wood used in our climbing frames is impregnated and therefore weatherproof.
Why high-pressure treated wood for climbing frames?
Wickey deliberately choses pressure-treated wood because of the many advantages compared to natural wood. The child- and environmentally friendly pressure-treated wood is also used in professional, public areas.
- No tedious sanding and annual painting
- Increases the life of the wood
- Protects against weathering, rot, mildew and fungi
- No expensive coating colour needed
