Intumescent Fire Retardant Treated Wood Alternate
No-Burn Intumescent Fire Retardant Spray for Wood
Fire Retardant Treated (FRT) wood is a framing material that may be required by code for Type III and Type V commercial construction, but it can be cumbersome to acquire and expensive to use. FRT wood requires special fasteners during construction, plus the traditional pressure impregnated chemical process renders the wood with less strength, requiring over engineering to compensate.
You’re no longer limited to using pressure-treated FRT wood. No-Burn Plus is an intumescent paint, not fire retardant treatment, which is applied to framing, sheeting or assembly components to meet fire safety and building code requirements.
Engineered wood may now have the same fire performance as rough sawn FRT wood when sprayed with No-Burn Plus. There are limits on engineered wood and pressure impregnation. A site-applied intumescent coating may be applied to any substrate it has fire performance code-compliant data to support.
When you’re requiring code-compliant fire performance, such as substrates like Oriented Strand Board, Southern Yellow Pine (SYP), Douglas Fir, Laminated Strand Lumber (LSL) or Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL), No-Burn Plus creates an equivalent treated material in quality, strength, effectiveness, durability and safety.
