FireZone F1E Pigmented Exterior Timber Cladding Intumescent Fire Protection
Description

Firezone F1E is a breakthrough in exterior fire protection coating systems. Designed to protect timber cladding weatherboards from ignition and flame spread.

Firezone F1E’s intumescent technology, when in contact with embers, sparks, radiant heat or direct flame, forms a Carbon insulating layer that seals off the substrate, preventing ignition or flame spread on the coated surface.

Key Features
  • Allows timber to be used on multi-storey construction (7m residential, 10m commercial)
  • Can be used within a 1m proximity to a boundary
  • Suitable on exterior timber cladding weatherboards (Western Red Cedar and Pine)
  • Firezone™ F1E is a 1-part self-priming system, applied to bare timber cladding followed by top coating with an acrylic exterior finish
  • High performance, non hazardous, waterbased low VOCs
  • Protective coating is sprayed on-site to achieve the nominated dry-film thickness
  • Applied by ZONE’s preferred applicators for compliance
