In a nutshell

What is Firewall Technology?

The revolutionary firewall technology is the best plywood that fights accidental fire and protects your house from severe damage. It is strategically treated to delay the spreading of fire and allow the necessary time for you and your family to take the necessary steps. Moreover, plywood made with this technology self-extinguishes when the source of fire is removed.

One of the most common sources of health hazards during an accidental fire is the smoke that is caused by the burning of wooden items. However, CenturyPly plywood made with firewall technology emits little smoke to protect your family from suffocation. Therefore, by installing firewall technology plywood from CenturyPly that comes with zero additional cost, you can get adequate time to call for help in case of unfortunate fire accidents.

Properties of Firewall Technology

Plywood manufactured with firewall technology has many properties that make it the best for domestic and commercial applications. These include the following:

●​​​​​​​ Fire protection to the core: CenturyPly plywood comes with firewall protection not only on the surface but in the core also. This means that the technology is embedded in the deep grain of the plywood so that the house suffers minimum damage during accidental fire outbreaks.

●​​​​​​​ Non-hygroscopic: These plywood have high resistance to moisture damage. This is possible because the wood grains do not absorb water or moisture from the surrounding. This helps the furniture and doors maintain their shape and structure for numerous years.

●​​​​​​​ Limited fire spread: Firewall delays the spread of fire to reduce damages. Generally, regular plywood intensifies fire breakouts due to the fast penetration of flame. However, CenturyPly firewall plywood is designed in a way that takes nearly 50 minutes to penetrate the flame for 19 mm thick ply. Thus people get enough time to call for emergency help and evacuate the area.

●​​​​​​​ Self extinguishes fire: The flammability of wooden items is the primary reason for the intensification of accidental fire. To combat this problem, CenturyPly firewall plywood comes with self-extinguishing properties. This means that the furniture stops burning if the fire source is removed. Therefore, the chances of fire spreading further diminish resulting in better safety for residents.

●​​​​​​​ Low smoke emission: The burning of wood generally creates enormous amounts of smoke that is harmful to human beings. However, plywood treated with firewall technology emits little smoke during fire outbreaks. This is possible because they contain fire-retardant chemicals that are known to produce less smoke.

●​​​​​​​ Borer and termite proof: In addition to fire outbreaks, termites lead to significant damage to wooden furniture. Therefore, plywood with firewall technology is chemically treated to prevent insect damage resulting in increased durability.

●​​​​​​​ Virokill technology: Wooden furniture or doors are the most touching pieces in a house. This results in cross-contamination and the spread of disease. Therefore, firewall plywood kills harmful viruses that’s comes in contact with its surface to enhance hygiene in the house and keep the residents healthy.
