 Is Solid Panel Construction a safe product?

Triboard is a very safe product. The preservatives used in Solid Panel Construction are water based and no solvents are used in the treatment process.

 What are some of the advantages of this treatment process compared to others?

The preservatives used are organic compounds that will naturally biodegrade in the soil. This is in contrast to some other treatments that are copper or tin based and do not readily biodegrade. Every strand which makes up the board is subjected to the preservative treatment.  This ensures the treatment is distributed throughout the full thickness of the board, meaning that any cut does not need additional sealing.
