Fireproofing of wood
The main reasons for this are: lower cost in its manufacture, it is one of the most environmentally friendly materials, and its great capacity to insulate. Wood is one of the most used materials to achieve energy efficiency in buildings.
In addition, contrary to what many people think, the reaction to fire of this material is similar or even better than that of other materials used in construction, withstanding temperatures of 400 ºC when it is not in direct contact with the flame.
But, despite this, wood is still a high combustion material when it comes into contact with fire, therefore, we must apply a passive fire protection treatment.
Why fireproof wood in structures or coatings?
The fireproofing of wood will allow the structure or coating to withstand high temperatures and maintain its stability for a longer period of time, varying the resistance according to the thicknesses and the product applied.
The fireproofing of wood in industrial facilities provides us with greater safety and also allows us to:
- Offer wood the necessary protection to be used as any structural element.
- Delay the effects of fire on the structure and allow the evacuation of the building.
- Facilitate the work of rescue teams.
- Protect the property housed inside the building during the fire.
