Our kiri wood is particularly low-emission – and therefore ideal for interior fittings. This was the result of a chamber test by the Brandenburg Materials Testing Institute (MPA) in accordance with DIN EN 16516.

Accordingly, the tested samples fulfil both the German requirements and those of the French VOC regulation. In concrete terms, this meant our kiri achieved the best emission class A+. The emissions tested for our Kiri wood are far below current limits.

Paulownia roundwood cut into boards from five specimens of our NordMax21® hybrid variety underwent examination. A 1.0 m2/m3 load corresponded to the usual exposure for wall materials. The concentrations of volatile organic compounds in the test chamber were determined after 3 and 28 days.

Our Kiri was tested and evaluated according to the standards of the German Institute for Building Technology (DIBt) and according to the test procedure of the German AgBB, the committee of the Federal Environment Agency for the Health Evaluation of Building Products.

On request, we will be happy to send you the test certificate with all the details.
