FireZone Board & Batten Fire Treatment for Natural Wood
Description

FireZone Board & Batten is a sustainable fire treatment for timber, providing a Group 1-S to plywood, timber battens and other solid wood interior linings. 

Collaborating with a timber manufacturer allows for the design and creation of beautiful, warm interiors using wood. Now ZONE add value to any timber design with a certified fire protection coating, shipped to the project for convenient on-site installation.

Key Features
  • Environmentally friendly (no red-list chemicals), low VOC’s, clear, water-based
  • Unlike traditional intumescent coatings, FZ B&B performs in areas with high humidity, enhancing timber’s built-in resistance to mould and fungi
  • No inconvenient on-site spraying of fire protection. The factory-treated board is quickly delivered for installation, a faster and more efficient solution
  • The fire treatment penetrates the timber substrate producing a damage resistant, durable finish
  • Tested to meet B-s1,d0 according to EN 13501-1:2007+A1:2009 on cedar & spruce. Test certification is available for plywood, CLT / LVL Engineered wood, Accoya and thermally modified timber
  • No arris edges — treated timber can maintain its sharp edges
Scope of Use
  • Interior surfaces only. Not for external use
  • For use on Timber species with substrate thickness ≥12mm and density between 350kg/m2 - 600kg/m2
  • Suitable for modular construction, school environments, commercial and industrial premises where accessibility, damage & maintenance is an issue
  • Can be fixed in either a vertical or horizontal direction to suit the architectural design
  • Fire treatment: FZ-Battens are a 4-sided finish, FZ-Board is a front facing surface unless requested
  • Timber can be cut on-site and assembled in place
