Statement of the jury

Especially the sustainable approach of the innovative wooden nail was convincing. The statement of the jury:

LIGNOLOC® is the first magazine-loaded nail made of wood. It is shot into the wood material without pre-drilling by a pneumatic nailer and thus replaces traditional steel nails. A real innovation that is environmentally friendly, sustainable and allows for an even more purist use of wood – without any metal, glue or similar.
