As timber experts, Arnold Laver can offer a choice of tried, tested and proven fire retardant treatments for timber and panel products: wherever fire protection is required or is specified by Building Regulations.
For both internal and external fire retardant treatments, we are proud to offer several options which you can see below.
At Arnold Laver, we work closely with PTG Treatments to supply products that are designed to be as practical as they are beautiful, so you don’t have to compromise on style when it comes to a durable product. Materials are treated to ensure effective fire protection performance that will last just as long as the timber product.
All PTG treatments meet the requirements of European Standard EN 13501-1, to either a Euroclass B or Euroclass C rating.
Sentrin FRX fire retardant treated timber has been pressure impregnated with a leach resistant (Type LR), exterior grade fire retardant formulation. It has been processed under ISO9001 controlled factory conditions to provide confidence in performance and long-lasting protection that you can trust. Even without any further maintenance and in fully weather-exposed situations, you can rely on Sentrin FRX fire retardant treatments.
Treated timber can meet the requirements of national Building Regulations where Euroclass B or C are required and will significantly reduce the spread of fire, heat generation and smoke generation. These fire performance properties do not compromise critical engineering properties such as strength, durability, corrosivity and hygroscopicity.
Sentrin FRX treated wood products have been tested to BS EN 13501-1:2002; Fire classification of construction products and building elements. These ‘reactions to fire tests’ are used to generate classifications of flammability which are commonly specified in building regulations. Sentrin FRX treated wood products meet the requirements of LR (leach resistant), HR (humidity resistant) and DI (dry internal) specifications.
