FLAME SAFE PRODUCTS HAVE THE LOWEST FLAME SPREAD RATINGS & SMOKE DEVELOPMENT RATINGS IN THE FIRE RETARDANT & FIREPROOING INDUSTRY

Test conducted at Intertek for Flame Safe fire retardant for wood I-Joists w/ OSB web - ASTM E2768-11 Extended Duration Surface Burning Characteristics of Building Materials(This standard uses the apparatus and procedure of the test method ASTM E84)

Flame Spread - 0; Smoke index 80

Depending on building occupancy, location of the material in the building and the presence of sprinklers, fire retardant wood materials are permitted under code requirements. To comply with the code standards, wood and wood products must meet the ASTM E84 test standard (Surface Burning Characteristics of Building Materials). The test chamber is rectangular being 17-3/4" wide, 12" in height and 25' in length. Multiple windows are located in the upper half of the wall of the test chamber so the test samples can be observed from outside the fire chamber. This test method determines the relative burning behavior of the fire retardant wood by observing the flame spread along the specimen. The flame spread is determined by distance the flame travels and the rate at which the flame front advances during the first 10 minute exposure the test continues for an additional 20 minutes. Smoke generation is recorded and indexed.

Flame Safe lumber is kiln dried to a moisture content not to exceed 19%. Flame Safe plywood is kiln dried to a moisture content not to exceed 15%. Flame Safe’s finished moldings and trim is kiln dried to a maximum moisture content of 6 to 12 % depending on the species and specific use. Pitch in the wood is crystallized permitting interior and exterior finishes to be easilly applied. When kiln dried, Flame Safe fire retardant treated wood becomes lighter and stronger, maximizing it's structural uses.

Flame Safe Wood Products fire retardant lumber, fire retardant plywood, fire retardant timber, fire retardant OSB, and fire retardant wood specalties have been tested by accredited third party testing agencies. Flame Safe warrants it’s products to perform as tested and will furnish test reports upon request, in addition to those published on FLAME SAFE'S web site
