Choose from leading wood certifications
All Troldtekt acoustic panels are certified by one of the two leading standards for responsible forestry. All of the wood is PEFC™-certified, and some is also FSC®-certified (FSC®C115450). This means you have a free choice of standards when you buy Troldtekt.
Read about the two leading certifications and take a guided tour of one of the FSC-certified forests where Troldtekt sources its wood.
The growing popularity of timber construction also means that certified wood products are in high demand.
In the report 'Carbon footprint from: 45 wooden buildings', the BUILD Institute at Aalborg University emphasises the importance of choosing a sustainable wood supply: that wood for construction should come from forestry that also takes into account biodiversity and the ongoing ageing of trees. This is where the two leading certifications for responsible forestry, FSC and PEFC, come into play.
At the factory in Troldhede, Troldtekt has its timber stock with even stacks of logs. Once the logs have been debarked and dried for six months, they become raw materials for use in Troldtekt acoustic panels. Troldtekt uses only certified wood in production.
All of the wood is PEFC-certified, while a proportion of it is also FSC-certified. As a customer, you can therefore choose which of the two certifications your Troldtekt acoustic panels should have.

The wood that Troldtekt planes into wood wool and mixes with cement is red spruce and comes exclusively from Danish forests.
An example of a certified forest can be found in Viborg Heath Plantation, where Troldtekt sources some of its wood. The forest is home to rows of Norway spruce, protected ponds, untouched forest and areas where the forest floor is teeming with life.
In the video below, Søren Dürr Grue – CEO of the NGO FSC Denmark – shows visitors around as he talks about the FSC’s global requirements for forest management.
Emphasising several aspects of sustainability
FSC stands for Forest Stewardship Council® and is widely supported by green organisations such as WWF and Greenpeace. The scheme focuses on social, environmental and economic interests.
For example, FSC requires that dead trees remain in the forest, that a proportion of trees are left standing, and that parts of the certified forest are completely untouched.
The second internationally leading scheme is PEFC, which stands for Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification.
PEFC is the world’s largest certification system for sustainable forestry. Like FSC, the scheme focuses on biodiversity and labour rights – as well as on the protection of important forest areas.
