Create a wall between incidents and accidents with Firewall
While all of us try our level best in life to
do the right thing and be conscious of everything in life, mishaps and
unforeseen events are something we as humans can’t control. This information,
albeit upsetting, encourages us to take calculative measures and precautions to
reduce the effects of such events.
One such event is that of a fire outbreak,
with innovations and breakthroughs these instances have thankfully reduced over
the years however that doesn’t mean that we are completely in the clear. Accidents
can happen at any time that can cause irreversible damage to both man and
material, hence fire safety is something that all of us must pay keen attention
When it comes to furniture, plywood
has been the top choice due to its durability and unmatched features. However,
plywood since it’s carved from wood can often worsen the situation in case of
fire. This doesn’t mean that we need to part ways with such an incredible
material, thanks to innovation in technology we now have fire-retardant plywood
which can prevent a fire outbreak from taking place.
CenturyPly, one of the leading names in
plywood in the nation has come up with the incredible ‘Firewall Technology’ which is available in a select range of
Firewall Technology- a wall between you and the fine
The Firewall technology by CenturyPly
is a nano-engineered technology where these nanoparticles are embedded in the plywood
itself to give it fire-retardant properties. These fire-retardant plywood not
only prevent the fire from spreading but also extinguish the fire once the
source of the fire is removed.
Some noteworthy characteristics of the
firewall technology are as follows:
1. Protects you
from suffocation -
The toxic smoke
produced in case of a fire can lead to suffocation and even death. However,
plywood enriched with the firewall technology has a smoke development index as per standard so the smoke produced is much less as compared to
ordinary plywood, thereby giving you enough time to leave the premises.
2. Takes much
longer to burn -
Plywood with fire
technology when tested had a flame penetration rate that was observed to be
greater than 2.5 times the thickness of
ply in minutes. Therefore, giving you enough time to safely exit the area and
call the fire brigade.
fire from spreading -
Fire-retardant plywood from CenturyPly delays the spread of
fire and does not act as a medium for the fire to spread rapidly. It takes more
than 30 minutes for 19 mm thick ply before the fire reaches the surface, and
once the source of the fire is removed this plywood also aids in extinguishing
This innovative technology has also been
tested for critical parameters like flammability, spreadability, penetration,
and smoke-developed index, whereby plywoods enriched with Firewall technology perform far superior under standard test
conditions to the benchmarks specified by Indian Standards IS 5509, American
standards ASTM E84 as well as British standards BS 476.
This technology has been a boon for us all for
ensuring our safety in case of the unfortunate event of a fire. Protect
yourself and your loved ones by investing in this fire-fighting plywood.
