Firewall-The firefighter that always stays with you
Thanks to precautionary measures and
innovative technologies, the number of fire accidents has been reducing every
year throughout the country. While one cannot completely stop such accidents
from happening, we can always be cautious and prepared to minimize the loss of
both man and material. One innovative technology that has been the savior for
preventing the spread of fire outbreaks is fire retardant plywood.
Plywood is one of the top choices when it
comes to making furniture, be it cabinets, desks, beds, or wardrobe, plywood is
the most popular choice due to its unmatched features and exquisite finish.
However, wood at the time of a fire outbreak is not really our friend but this
doesn't necessarily mean that we need to part ways with plywood. With
advancements in technology, we now have access to fire-retardant plywood which
can not only help prevent the fire from spreading but also help extinguish it
once the source is removed.
One of the most renowned names in the plywood
industry, CenturyPly has a select range of
plywood that comes with the innovative technology termed as ‘The Firewall
Technology’. This technology has been used to create the nation’s best
fire-fighting plywood, which can help keep both you and your loved ones safe in
case of any unfortunate mishaps.
What is Firewall technology?
Firewall technology by
CenturyPly is an indigenously developed technology
that involves the use of nano-engineered particles that are embedded in the
polymer matrix of plywood, giving it the best in class fire-fighting
When tested for critical parameters like
flammability, spreadability, penetration, and smoke-developed index, plywoods
enriched with Firewall technology perform 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.
Some important characteristics of the plywood
with firewall technology are as follows :
fire from spreading -
with Firewall technology delay the spread of fire and do not act as a medium
for the fire to spread rapidly. This technology also self-extinguishes once the
source of the fire is removed.
2. Low smoke
The toxic fumes
that are generated in case of fire can lead to suffocation and even death.
However, with fire-retardant plywood enriched with Firewall technology, the
smoke emission rate is much lower than ordinary plywood, thereby allowing one
to leave safely leave the premises without much harm.
flame penetration rate -
Plywood enriched with Firewall technology when tested had a flame penetration
rate that was greater than 3 times the thickness of ply in minutes. So when the
fire reaches the surface, it doesn't de-laminate and keeps the structural
integrity intact. In total, it takes about 50 minutes for the fire to spread
over firewall-embedded plywood, thereby acting as a firefighter inside your
4. Borer &
