Fire Retardant Treated Wood

 If you want to build a safe and fire resistant building, you will need to use fire retardant treated wood. This type of wood has been treated with chemical preservatives that help slow the oxidation process that occurs when wood is burned. This slowed oxidation process allows for more available time to quickly evacuate a building.

Flameproof Companies is committed to creating safe buildings. Their fire retardant treated wood has been tested and certified by Underwriters Laboratories and has been rated with an “FRS” rating under UL classification. This means that the fire retardant treated wood has a flame spread and smoke rating of 25 or less. In other words, the wood has been certified as safe.

There are many features to Flameproof Companies’ fire retardant treated wood. In addition to being fire retardant, this wood is durable, non-blooming, non-corrosive, and non-hygroscopic. Additionally, the fire retardant treated wood is paintable, stainable, and easy to handle. This wood even comes with a 50 year warranty. Basically, the wood can be used in any way that untreated wood can be used. The only difference is that that fire retardant treated wood is fire resistant and has a long warranty. Can you say that about your untreated wood?
