Fire is one of the most devastating hazards in the world. A small flame can erupt into a larger fire or even an explosion. That is why the construction industry, engineers and architects are constantly looking for new and innovative critical fire protection products.
Teckwood’s research and development department have, through a unique combination of Decknology and creativity, launched what they believe is the world’s first Fire Resistant Class B composite decking. The highly controlled treatments are introduced as part of the extrusion process that impregnates the whole of the mixture providing a permanent long term protection that requires little or no maintenance. Offering tangible benefits over short lived products that are applied on site, and uncontrolled fire retardant coating products, saving time and money on installation.
Teckwood’s new Class B fire rated composite decking board features the same beautiful on trend styles as the rest of Teckwood’s composite decking types, you do not have to sacrifice style. It can help minimise risk due to fire exposure and may be a contributing factor in stopping small isolated fires from being a destructive force on domestic and commercial properties.
