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 long term fire protection for interior or full exterior applications without the need for a protective coating.
Both DRICON and NON-COM Exterior dramatically 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 NON-COM Exterior impregnate all faces of the timber or board products, creating a permanent protection that requires no maintenance. This is a real benefit over short lived products and site applied and uncontrolled fire retardant coating products.
Within our FIRE PROTECTION family there is a choice of two commercially proven and established treatments to suit your exact requirements – DRICON and NON-COM Exterior.
The Treatment Process
A high pressure process is used for treating timber with DRICON or NON-COM Exterior fire retardants.
