Types and origins of our wood

We always aim to source wood responsibly. Being located in a remote place where the sea and the woods are always present, we feel it is our obligation as a company. One important step in this process is to use FSC®-certified wood.

Carefully selected materials for all components of our doors

Not all types of wood are suitable for building doors. Since we want to guarantee good results, we use the following types of wood. They are durable, beautiful and FSC®-certified.

Ash, Fraxinus excelsior

White stained Swedish FSC®-certified ash.

Oak, Querqus Robur

Swedish FSC®-certified oak.

Freijo, Cordia Goeldiana

Teak, Tectona Grandis

We have at last, after 10 years of work found FSC®-certified teak in Indonesia.

Walnut, Juglans nigra

North American FSC®-certified walnut.

Pine, Pinus Silvestris

Swedish FSC®-certified pine.

Pine, Pinus Silvestris

White painted Swedish FSC®-certified pine.

Ongoing environmental efforts

The worrying facts we hear about the state of forests around the world, illegal felling and climate impact are all part of the reason we chose to exclusively use FSC-certified timber.

Fair Wood

All the wood that is purchased by Bovalls is FSC®-certified. We also support Fair Wood, because it adds a further dimension of sustainability through its efforts to engage forest farmers around the world in the timber trade.

FSC® Forest Stewardship Council

Bovalls has traceability certificates for manufacturing and selling FSC-certified doors. This means that we sell doors that are made of wood from sustainable forests, where forest worker receive decent wages, where animals and vegetation have good conditions for survival and where no more trees are harvested than the forest can replace naturally.
