The effects of fire can be so fast and so devastating. Fire can quickly ruin buildings and take lives. Lonza Wood Protection offers two tried, tested and trusted industrially applied fire retardants for timber and panel products. Our fire retardants provide complete assurance if a fire situation occurs. Proven fire protection for interior applications without the need for a protective coating. Within our FIRE PROTECTION family there is a choice of two commercially proven and established treatments to suit your exact requirements – DRICON and ATP Generic. Both DRICON and ATP Generic reduce the surface spread of flame, heat and smoke release during a fire, giving vital extra time for a safe escape. Both have full independent certification for a range of species and thicknesses to meet the requirements of European Standard EN 13501-1. Both DRICON and ATP Generic impregnate all faces of the timber or board products creating a protection that requires no maintenance. This is a real benefit over site applied and uncontrolled fire retardant coating products. The benefits of fire retardant treatments are shown in the video link below. Click on the image to play.
