Fire Resistant Wood


Fire resistant wood products are the foundation to responsible building. These products increase the amount of time it takes for wood to burn. This is because the chemical preservatives that are applied to the wood slow down the oxidation process that occurs when the wood is burned. In effect, the wood burns more slowly. This creates a multitude of benefits. First of all, more time can be spent on a safe evacuation of the building. This extra time could be the difference between life and death in some cases. Additionally, because the fire will spread more slowly than it would with untreated lumber, the fire can be caught earlier on. In such a case, the fire can be contained and put out sooner so that only minimal damage occurs.
