Utilities depend on their wood structures lasting 25-30 years. Therefore, it’s important to specify quality material in manufacturing wood braces. Apitong wood is a dense fiber hardwood, grown in the Asian forest, making it an optimal resource for utility braces.
Apitong wood grows only in certain regions of the world; placing high demand on the Asian forest. Hubbell is doing their part to protect these forest by sourcing Apitong wood from sustainably managed Asian forest, certified by PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification). PEFC is an independent international forest certification organization. HPS Apitong wood braces are each labeled with the PEFC certification.
