What is Firewall Technology?

In an unfortunate case when a fire breaks out, any ordinary plywood would act as fuel for the
fire, spreading it faster and ultimately putting the residents of the house in danger.

CenturyPly plywood that is developed using Firewall Technology becomes fire retardant. In case of a fire incident, the plywood:

● Slows down the spread of the fire by not burning quickly.
● Emits less smoke to protect the residents from suffocation.
● Self extinguishes after the fire’s source is removed.

When the plywood itself limits the spread of the fire, the inhabitants get crucial time to leave
the premises to safety and call for help. CenturyPly Plywood with Firewall Technology is the
best fire-fighting plywood in India.

To answer all burning doubts about the technology, here are some commonly asked questions

1. How can I benefit from Firewall Technology?

A fire is devastating - emotionally, physically and mentally. Always buy fire-retardant plywood to ensure the damage caused by the fire is limited. The Firewall Technology is especially useful in plywood applied on furniture or in areas such as the kitchen where the chances of an accidental fire breaking out are the most. When a fire breaks out, you will get the time to save yourself and the other residents when the plywood slows down the spread of the fire. The chances of asphyxiation are significantly reduced when less smoke is emitted. The plywood will also extinguish the fire after the source is removed.

2. Has the Firewall Technology been tested?

Yes, the Firewall Technology has been tested. The two plywood models - 19mm thick
Architect Ply and Club Prime plywood enriched with Firewall technology have been tested
under standard test conditions. The results show they perform better than the benchmarks
specified by Indian Standards IS 5509, British standards BS 476 and American standards
ASTM E84. These tests were conducted on critical parameters such as flammability,
spreadability, smoke-developed index and penetration.

3. How much does the Firewall Technology cost?

The Firewall Technology has been applied to CenturyPly plywood at absolutely no extra cost.
Architect Ply and Club Prime plywood do not charge any extra cost to become fire retardant;
the technology is instilled in them as they are being developed.
