lumber with stampFlame Safe Identifying Stamp for flameproof lumber

Depending on building occupancy, location of the material in the building and the presence of sprinklers, fire retardant wood materials are permitted under code requirements. To comply with the code standards, wood and wood products must meet the ASTM E84 test standard (Surface Burning Characteristics of Building Materials).

Flame Safe flameproof lumber is kiln dried to a moisture content not to exceed 19%.Pitch in the wood is crystallized permitting interior and exterior finishes to be easilly applied. Flame Safe’s finished moldings and trim is kiln dried to a maximum moisture content of 6 to 12 % depending on the species and specific use.When kiln dried, Flame Safe fire retardant treated wood becomes lighter and stronger, maximizing it's structural uses.

 

 

Steiner Tunnel TestASTM E84 TEST CHAMBER The test chamber is rectangular being 17-3/4" to 24" wide, 12" in height and 25' in length. Multiple windows are located in the upper half of the wall of the test chamber so the test samples can be observed from outside the fire chamber. This test method determines the relative burning behavior of the fire retardant wood by observing the flame spread along the specimen. The flame spread is determined by distance the flame travels and the rate at which the flame front advances during the first 10 minute exposure the test continues for an additional 20 minutes. Smoke generation is recorded and indexed.


Wood and wood based products are highly desirable due to their appearance and versatility.

VACUUM PRESSURE IMPREGNATION

Lumber is loaded into a treatment cylinder. The door is sealed and a vacuum is applied. During this stage, most of the moisture and the air is removed from the wood cells. The vacuum in the cylinder causes the cylinder to fill with Flame Safe's proprietary Fire Retardant. Pressure is raised in the cylinder forcing the fire retardant solution into the wood. The pressure and times varies depending on the species of the wood, the commodity being treated, the cross sectional area, and the amount of the Fire Retardant solution to be impregnated into the wood. The pressure in the cylinder forces the remaining fire retardant solution to flow back into a holding tank. Another vacuum is applied, removing the excess fire retardant solution from the wood. The lumber, plywood or timber is loaded onto a tram that services a gas fired forced air kiln.

 

KILN DRYING AFTER TREATMENT

Heated air is used to extract moisture from the wood. A gas fired forced air convection system removes most of the moisture from the wood after treatment. The moisture laden air is dehumidified. The drying rate is monitored to prevent cracking in the lumber. Lumberd is kiln dried to a moisture content not to exceed 19%. . Pitch in the wood is crystallized permitting interior and exterior finishes to be easily applied. When kiln dried, Flame Safe fire retardant treated wood becomes lighter and stronger, maximizing it's structural uses.
