Timber Fire Protection

Cladspray Solutions are specialists in the application of timber fire protection coating systems. Timber is a combustible material, and the risk of fire is a huge factor when it comes to Health and Safety. Timber fire protection provides wood and timber surfaces with a protective layer, insulating the surfaces from heat and oxygen. This helps to control the spread of flames and fire, as well as providing structural stability for the building – allowing for safer evacuation of a building in the event of a fire.

FIRE PROTECTION UPGRADING FOR TIMBER

Building regulations have various fire ratings which may need to be achieved. The most common are ‘class 1’ or ‘class 0’ spread of flame, but architects or building control will sometimes ask for higher ratings, such 30 or 60-minute coating systems to be applied.

We are approved applicators of some of the leading brands in timber fire protection such as EnvirografZeroflame & Thermoguard. We can offer many types of finish such as clear, white or coloured systems; with various sheen levels depending on the final finish required. Unsure which system you require? We can offer solutions for internal and external timber, which can be fully certified. We can also offer technical advice for which coating system will best meet your needs.

case study

We completed a timber frame fire protection project at a Grade II listed barn near Bury St Edmunds. The Grade II property required all internal timber walls, ceilings and beams to meet class 0 spread of flame, in line with building control regulations. We worked to a tight deadline, completing the project in just 3 days. The end result was a stunning clear matt finish, providing fully certified class 0 spread of flame.
