Why Should You Use Fire Retardant Wood Products?
Using fire retardant wood is one of the easiest ways to create a safe building. To make fire retardant wood, chemical preservatives are applied to the wood. The preservative slows down the oxidation process that occurs when wood is burned, causing it to burn more slowly. In an emergency fire situation, fire retardant wood will provides more time to safely evacuate a building than untreated wood does. This extra time could be the difference between life and death.
How Can I Use Fire Retardant Wood?
You can use fire resistant plywood and wood in any way that you could use untreated wood products. You can paint it, stain it, and use it in any way that you would use the untreated wood. The only main difference between treated and untreated wood is the chemical preservative that helps slow down the spread of fire. Everything else is virtually the same, so you can use it in all your building projects in the same way as you would regular wood.
