In your role as a builder/contractor, you are responsible for using certified products. Fire protection is safety and shall be treated with a serious attitude, in accordance with legal requirements for product performance. Fire protection is expensive, but in this case, downstream users cannot take shortcuts and use cheaper products at the expense of these not being certified for use. For example, no builder would take a risk and use "low strength rafters" or "unauthorized electrical accreditation" or hire "unauthorized wet room installers".

In line with increased demand for wood cladding, façades and decorative materials, so increases the demand for building contractors' knowledge and awareness of fire safety. Increased demands for fire protection place higher demands on you as a builder to know the rules concerning the fire resistant properties of wood products. What exactly is B-s1,d0? A combination of papers, a low price or a product that conforms to national building regulations in accordance with building legislation and the EU Construction Products Regulation requiring CE marking.

The art of selecting the a brand/supplier     

On a basic level, it is obvious that the fire class must be met and must be certified according to the EU Construction Products Regulation 305/2011. But a fire rating of a document does not mean that the product is automatically suitable for use. Wood is a living material with unique properties and the potential to be fire safe. Depending on the requirements of your application, you need to take into account more than just the fire class. Obviously there are more products than Woodsafe on the market. The question you should ask is why one product is certified and another is not, why one product is more expensive than another, and so on. Woodsafe's service of fire treating wood is surrounded by a range of certified products/services undertaken in accordance with laws and regulations, including over 100 combinations of wood species, fire class, finishing and more. We know the rules, and we are more than happy to help you.
