Fire Treated Plywood
When fire destroys a house, it doesn’t just destroy the home’s structure. It can also destroy the lives of the people who lived in it. Fire treated plywood helps to provide protection against fire by slowing down the oxidation process that occurs when wood is burned. The resulting effect is a wood that burns more slowly, giving people the opportunity to safely evacuate. Fire treated plywood has so many safety benefits that some building codes require it to be used in a building’s construction.
To create fire treated plywood, a chemical preservative is applied to the wood which causes the wood to burn more slowly. However, the plywood is still an extremely durable and reliable product. In fact, it can be used in any way that untreated plywood can be. Fire resistant plywood is perfectly safe for you and your building.
Aside from its fire resistant properties, fire treated plywood can protect a building against bugs and fungus. This can save you from spending money on new wood that could otherwise be destroyed. It’s just another way fire treated plywood is helping protect your building.
Don’t take the risk of losing your family or belongings in a fire. Use fire treated plywood to protect you, your loved ones, and your property against fire.
