Fire Retardant Treated Wood


If you want to build a safe and fire resistant building, you will need to use fire retardant treated wood. This type of wood has been treated with chemical preservatives that help slow the oxidation process that occurs when wood is burned. This slowed oxidation process allows for more available time to quickly evacuate a building.
