Can fire-retardant plywood really save lives?
When we think of fire, we have a sudden
thought of devastation and the black burnt marks that might even fade away
physically but leaves an unforgettable impression in our brains. Not only this,
fire is a calamity, which leaves us in a haze when it comes to decision making.
When there is a mishap that occurs because of fire, we take steps that instead
of helping us, make things worse. We try to blow it and it spreads even more
We surely can’t control such a stimulus, but
we definitely can make some intelligent choices that can prevent such mishaps.
Will you believe us when we say that fire-retardant plywood
can save your life?
Let us prove that you are wrong here.
The Firewall technology that is innovated by CenturyPly,
is a specially designed nanotechnology that makes plywood resistant to fire.
Against the regular plywood that burns as
quickly as it sees fire, the fire-retardant plywood from CenturyPly shows
impeccable strength in the face of fire. Here are a few qualities of Firewall
that fights the fire and saves your life:
1. Impedes inflammability: Regular plywood catches fire
instantly. Whereas, Firewall plywood has been tested to resist fire for
around half an hour. After this also, fire spreads to the surface only and
not through the entire plywood. This helps in keeping a check on the the
spread, giving you ample time to evacuate from the impact area.
Having said that, CenturyPly fire-retardant plywood also douses the fire on its own,
once it departs from the source of the fire.
How about that?!
2. Slow fire penetration: A regular ply conducts fire quite easily and
quickly, thus increasing the probability of destruction caused due to fire
The firewall technology makes it possible
for the plywood to resist flame penetration for a long 50 minutes. This is
ample time to identify the source of the fire and separate it to stop the further
spread. In case you can not find it, you have time to evacuate your family from
the place. After all, nothing is bigger than your life.
3. Minimal toxic fumes: The inhalation of intoxicating
smoke gases causes more fire deaths than the fire itself. It cuts the supply of
oxygen from the air and makes breathing difficult. When we inhale, instead of
oxygen, it is the fumes caused by the fire that enters our lungs, suffocating
plywood made with Firewall Technology uses fire-retardant chemicals. These
chemicals ensure a lesser amount of smoke generation, which is a drawback in
the case of other regular plywood. Thus, this eliminates any serious consequences
because of suffocation caused by the smoke generated.
