FACTS about Woodsafe PRO™
Woodsafe PRO™ is advantageously used as facade cladding in multi-storey houses that are to be surface treated with traditional facade paint, ceiling ducts, wall and ceiling cladding indoors, constructions, acoustic applications (such as thin wooden boards, perforated plywood, offshore, vehicles e.g. trains and lorries, etc.). Woodsafe PRO™ is not based on hygroscopic substances such as ammonium phosphate, di-ammonium, monoammonium, urea or similar substances.
Woodsafe PRO™ is available in a number of wood types such as pine, spruce, oak, larch, cedar tree, birch, ash, maple, poplar and in plywood as spruce, birch and poplar. The wood products are manufactured in accordance with the European Commission Construction Products Regulation CPR 305/2011 and performance certified and CE certified according to EN14915:2013 and EN13986:2004+A1:2015.
Woodsafe PRO™ is a flame retardant wood method for interior and exterior use. The actual performance of the flame retardant wood panel takes place in an industrial vacuum pressure impregnation process, and associated fixation of the fire retardant in the wood cell structure is achieved through the KDAT process. Manufacturing is done according to our ISO 9001: 2015 manual and continuous production control agreement by RISE (formerly SP).
Woodsafe PRO™ treated wood has the following features:
Wood treated with Woodsafe PRO™ has a flame retardant coating (K210/ B-s1,d0, K110/ B-s1,d0, ), surface layer (B-s1,d0), facade cladding (SP-Fire105) nd durable fire properties in exterior environment with surface treatment as traditionally painted facades according to SS-EN16755 DRF EXT
Using flame retardant wood in interior environments imposes air quality and emissions (VOC) requirements. Woodsafe PRO™ does not contain any solvents and is certified according to the type approval certificate of the Swedish National Board of Housing, Building and Planning building regulations (BBR) 2:2, 5:231, 5:551, -points 2, 3 and 4, 6:21 (Doc.reference. TG 0263-08).
Questions and Answers
In our impregnation process, the wood and the wood product are fully woven and depending on the product, 10-30% by weight of fire protection agents are pressed into the cell structure and then dried back to a correct moisture ratio.
The combination of moisture and drying means that an already finished planed, sawn or processed wood product can become crooked and lopsided compared to untreated wood. In the fire impregnation process, the wood is soaked with water mixed with fire impregnator and then dried.
The impregnation process also means that dimensional changes due to wood and plywood can occur, even within the same quality assortment, which may result in the wood material dimension changing differently.
Dimension change may deviate from planing tolerance and plywood tolerance, which is considered ok because the impregnation process occurs after planing and the production of plywood. It is the responsibility of the client/customer to take into account these conditions when ordering Woodsafe contract impregnation services
-No, but you should know that no fire protection that is available is organic, such promises are misleading.
-No, the product is not classified as hazardous to health or the environment.
-Yes, it's approved and does not issue emissions.
-Yes, but with a lower level of limit than levels that require authorisation and labelling.
-Yes it can be painted. Read more on separate product sheet.
-Yes, since 2008. TG nr 0263-08
-No, that is an industrial process.
-Woodsafe PRO™ flame retardant wood is delivered from the factory with a moisture ratio of 12-14% for interior environments, 15-18% for exterior environments and 8-10% for plywood, at the time the product is delivered from the factory.
How the panel then goes on to be handled and how moisture is secured is completely beyond our control and it is the responsibility of the customer to ensure continued proper storage and handling to maintain the moisture content.
-No, we sell through partners who are more than happy to help you.
-Yes, since 2009. CE Certificate No: CPR 0402-0243-09, CPR 0402-0268-09
-Yes, it Is certified EN16755 DRF1, DRF2 and EXT
-No, it does not contain hygroscopic substances such as phosphate, ammonium phosphate, diammonium phosphate, etc.

The use of fire-protected wood in an exterior environment places high demands on the properties of the fire protection agent to withstand rain, cold, heat, etc. SS-EN16755 EXT is a requirement for exterior application.
