Last week we enjoyed a visit from Sihga, our new timber fixing partners.  Our technical team took some time away from their desks to carry out specially developed training which provided them with hands-on experience of working with Sihga’s engineered fixing systems. The specialist training further emphasised the capabilities of these unique products to make timber look better and last longer. 

Sihga are an Austrian timber fixings specialist, operating from Ohlsdorf which lies around 75km West of Salzburg. They formed in the mid-2000’s and have since built up a portfolio of over 70 patents, which is testament to their extraordinary levels of product innovation.

Russwood are currently working alongside Sihga and the Napier Centre of Wood Science and Technology, researching the extent to which Sihga fixings and SiOO:X coating will enhance the durability of UK grown larch.
