A resource throughout time

Wood has been a great ally to mankind for centuries -- from building shelter to ships.

Wood has always been an important natural resource. Essential in our everyday lives and the economy, with expansive uses such as:

  • wood-frame houses

  • furniture

  • newspapers

  • books & magazines

  • bridges

  • railroad ties

  • fence posts

  • utility poles

  • fuel

  • textile fabrics

  • organic chemicals


Certainly, we will continue enjoying the great benefits of lumber, and with FireGuardia products, there will be more wood available well into the future.


Modern solutions are at the core of all that we do at FireGuardia. Our main goal is finding smart ways of using technology that will help build a better tomorrow for everyone, everywhere.
