Fire Retardant Wood – All-in-one concept
Since 2011 Woodsafe and Backegards have successfully combined their common knowledge into one common concept. Woodsafe contributes with state-of-the-art knowledge in fire retardant treatment and Backegards with all the knowledge needed to produce various wooden products that cope with the fire retardant treatment without loosing the aesthetics required for high-end applications. We refer to this as an all-in-one concept. Buying into our solution is buying into a well-proven concept where many years of experience are combined into great looking products with leading fireproof wood properties at minimized risk. Our aim is to guide you to price-worthy product combinations that go neatly through your, and our, production processes.
What to treat, and what not to treat
Our experience is that not all wood species are suitable for all fire retardant treatments. There are several important issues that govern a wise choice of product, i.e.
- Indoor/outdoor application?
- Documentation requirements. B-s1,d0, CE, SBI, CPR 305 etc.
- What FR chemical to use?
- Dimensions/profiles/assembly and effect on reaction to fire.
- Raw material sourcing
- Production planning
- Logistics Assuring that the product specification is right from the very beginning is together with careful procurement the key to most quality related issues.
Woodsafe PRO™ is advantageously used as facade cladding in multi-story houses that are to be surface treated with traditional facade paint, ceiling ducts, wall and ceiling cladding indoors, constructions, acoustic applications (such as thin wooden boards, perforated plywood, offshore, vehicles e.g., trains and lorries, etc.). Woodsafe PRO™ is not based on hygroscopic substances such as ammonium phosphate, di-ammonium, monoammonium, urea or similar substances.
Woodsafe PRO™ is available in several wood species such as pine, spruce, oak, larch, cedar, birch, ash, maple, poplar and in plywood as spruce, birch and poplar. The wood products are manufactured in accordance with the European Commission Construction Products Regulation CPR 305/2011 and performance certified and CE certified according to EN14915:2013 and EN13986:2004+A1:2015.
Woodsafe PRO™ is a flame retardant wood method for interior and exterior use. The actual performance of the flame retardant wood panel takes place in an industrial vacuum pressure impregnation process, and associated fixation of the fire retardant in the wood cell structure is achieved through the KDAT process. Manufacturing is done according to our ISO 9001: 2015 manual and continuous production control agreement by RISE (formerly SP). Wood treated with Woodsafe PRO™ has a flame retardant coating (K210/ B-s1,d0, K110/ B-s1,d0, ), surface layer (B-s1,d0), facade cladding (SP-Fire105) nd durable fire properties in exterior environment with surface treatment as traditionally painted facades according to EN16755 DRF EXT
Woodsafe PRO™ treated wood has the following features:
- flame retardant for claddings according to K210/ B-s1,d0, K110/ B-s1,d0
- surface layer's reaction to fire according to B-s1, d0
- durable fire properties in exterior environments with surface treatment as traditionally painted facades according to EN16755 DRF EXT.
Woodsafe Exterior WFX™
Woodsafe Exterior WFX™ is the obvious choice of flame retardant wood when you want "Mother Earth" to take care of the aging process on nature's own conditions, where wind, sunlight, precipitation and temperature create their expression on the wood panel. Woodsafe Exterior WFX is not based on hygroscopic substances such as ammonium phosphate, di-ammonium, monoammonium, urea or similar substances.
Woodsafe Exterior WFX™ is advantageously used in environments with high humidity such as bathhouse facilities, ice hockey arenas or in very humid environments such as mines, underground environments, and in exterior environments such as facade and roofing, irrespective of whether they are inland or coastal.
Woodsafe Exterior WFX™ is available for wood species such as cedar, larch, spruce, frake, oak, thermowood pine, ash, ayous and spruce, accoya, poplar and shingles of e.g. cedar, larch, pine.
Woodsafe Exterior WFX™ are unique in all possible ways. Woodsafe Exterior WFX ™ is the only fire-proof impregnated wood product in Europe with waterproof and maintenance-free properties against fire, which is CE certified according to the European Commission Building Products Regulation CPR 305/2011, EN14915: 2013 and type approved by the Swedish National Board of Housing, Building and Planning (SFS 2010: 900), PBL.
Woodsafe Exterior WFX™ treated wood has a characteristic fire protection ability of coverings (K210/B-s1, d0, K110/B-s1, d0,), surface (B-s1, d0 and B-s2, d0), facade cladding (SP-Fire105) as well as persistent fire properties in exterior environment without any requirement for other surface treatments according to EN 16755 DRF EXT (ex-CEN/ts 15912, NT-Build 504).
The actual performance of the flame retardant wood panel takes place in an industrial vacuum pressure impregnation process, and associated fixation of the fire retardant in the wood cell structure is achieved through a specially developed KDAT process.
Woodsafe Exterior WFX™ flame retardant wood is delivered from the factory with a 15-18% moisture content. All manufacturing is done according to our ISO 9001 manual and continuous production control agreement by RISE (formerly SP).
