SUPPORT: ARCHITECT

Now, no architect or designer needs to be afraid of a lack of fire protection, leaching or other weaknesses as has previously been seen in, for instance salt-treated wood products and wood-based panels. By using Woodsafe fireproofed wood, you get access to our knowledge of fire-resistant wood used for over 25 years worldwide in a variety of climatic conditions. Choose natural materials (wood), and create natural, pleasant environments with for example oak, larch, pine, maple, birch, cedar, beech, thermo wood, ash, poplar, aspen, spruce, pine and others.

Project support and readings

A common situation is that Woodsafe Timber Protection comes in late in the project. In order to avoid technical barriers that really should not occur, Woodsafe's expert advisors are more than happy to visit to discuss and explain the options available. If you would like a reading on the subject of fire-retardant wood, a functional description or regulations relating to CPR, please contact technical support for more information.

As an architect, you carry the great responsibility of providing 

As an architect, you bear great responsibility of providing and referring to products with the appropriate fire-resistant properties. One common problem is that the regulatory text refers only to fire class. It is completely incorrect to refer solely to the fire class. This may sound strange, but is easy to understand. Fire prevention and safety is surrounded by a variety of legal requirements and certification requirements. Quite simply, the law must be followed. The difficulty is to know what the law actually requires. Woodsafe understand that it may seem complicated to understand all fire classes and different operators' promises about their particular services. But if you as an architect provide as follows, you will be doing the right thing. All you need to do is adapt the text to whether you are using plywood or solid wood. If both, you can copy the text into the regulatory text in the construction documents. 

Recommended regulations B-s1,d0 and K210/B-s1,d0 

Wood and plywood panels must be fire treated in accordance with K210/B-s1,d0 by the brand Woodsafe or equivalent. The supplier/manufacturer shall, prior to the procurement/execution of fire protection measures present a DOP (Declaration of Performance), as well as a CE certificate with reference to CPR 305/2011, EN13986:2004 (plywood) and/or EN14915:2013 (solid wood), in accordance with B-s1,d0 for the wood species in question. The supplier/manufacturer shall, prior to procurement/execution of fire protection measures also exhibit a type approval certificate, in cases specifying that the species of wood/plywood in question is certified K210/B-s1,d0. Equivalent product refers to another product of equivalent performance according to Appendix E. In the case of equivalent eligibility for the manufacturer's quality system, Appendix C can be used. Presentation of individual fire test reports or documents with title certificates without the above details are not approved documents in the project's procurement of fire-treated wood.

Recommended regulatory text facade covering SP-Fire 105 

 Wood panelling must fire treated according to SP Fire 105 and B-s1,d0 by the brand Woodsafe or equivalent. The supplier/manufacturer shall, prior to the procurement/execution of fire protection measures present a DOP (Declaration of Performance), as well as a CE certificate with reference to CPR 305/2011, EN13986:2004 (plywood) and/or EN14915:2013 (solid wood), in accordance with B-s1,d0 for the wood species in question. The supplier/manufacturer shall, prior to the procurement/execution of fire protection measures produce a Type approval certificate where specified that the fire retardant has resistant properties in accordance with CEN/TS15912:2012 DRF EXT, or ASTM 2898D. Equivalent product refers to another product of equivalent performance according to Appendix E. In the case of equivalent eligibility for the manufacturer's quality system, Appendix C can be used. Presentation of individual fire test reports or documents with title certificates without the above details are not approved documents in the project's procurement of fire-treated wood.
