using flame retardant materials for wood decking

Burning behavior of wood-plastic composite decking boards in end-use conditions: The effects of geometry, material composition, and moisture In this study, we compared four flame retardants: two different ammonium polyphosphate formulations, a recent flame retardant with the trade name Struktol SA 

Fire Resistant Decks. The vulnerability of decks to wildfire will depend on the decking board material, any combustible materials stored under the deck or kept on the Untreated wood and wood treated with fire retardant, as well as plastic and wood-plastic composite products, are all combustible and therefore vulnerable to 

The IWUIC and NFPA 1144 specify the use of decking materials that are “noncombustible,” such as steel framing and aluminum decking, or “ignition-resistant,” such as pressure-treated exterior-rated fire-retardant-treated lumber. CBC Chapter 7A also allows the use of certain “combustible” materials for a 

FRX pressure treatment, a durable and leach resistant Class A fire retardant; reduces flame spread and smoke development in exposed structures. Learn more today. FRX wood combines the beauty and versatility of wood with the fire safety of non-combustible materials. Comprehensive quality control programs, 

Watch this video to see how different types of decking materials and combustible materials on top of the deck performed in wildfire testing. Untreated wood and wood treated with fire retardant, as well as plastic and wood-plastic composite products, are all combustible and therefore vulnerable to ember and other wildfire 

As part of our commitment to quality and safety we offer a range of high performance fire retardant treated products using tried and tested fire retardant pressure Thresholds to achieve Euroclass B are higher than those for Euroclass C and, therefore, if a material conforms to Euroclass B it also conforms to Euroclass C.

Wood-and-Glass Boards. timberwood material for fireproof deck. View as slideshow. Pressure-treated deck boards that contain fire retardants—along with other chemicals—tend to leach toxins over time, degrading both the environment and the stability of the wood. That's not the case with TimberSIL, a toxin-free alternative 

Fire resistance rating values are important if you are building a deck made of wood or composite materials wherever you live. But not essential. Unless that is, if you live in California. And you are using a composite decking board. I am going to discuss to types of materials and how they stack up when it comes to fire for wood 

But, as any Boy Scout could tell you, wood is a key fuel in most fires. To preserve our ability to build with wood without making our homes into tinderboxes, companies like Dricon have developed ways to treat natural wood that make it far less dangerous when exposed to flames. Fire-resistant chemicals 

The under-deck area shown in this photograph would not comply with the intended defensible space requirements of the new building code. There are three The term ignition resistant is given to materials that obtain a flame spread rating of 25 or less when subjected to an extended (30 minute) test. Materials must
