Make your kitchens fire-retardant

When it comes to our homes, all of us often go above and beyond to ensure the hygiene and cleanliness of our interiors. Our homes are after all the safe spaces we find ourselves the most comfortable in at the end of the day. Whilst most of us try our level best, accidents are prone to happen and are inescapable, be it minor stains and scruffs or unfortunate events that can cause loss of both man and material. One such event is that of fire, fires in the kitchen rank as the number one cause of house fires. Thankfully due to innovations in technology we now have fire-retardant plywood that can help in protecting us and our loved ones in case of the misfortunate event of a fire.

For plywood and all our interior needs, there's one name that shines the brightest amongst all and that is CenturyPly. The most trusted name for plywood in the country has a special range of fire-retardant plywood which comes with the pioneering ‘Firewall technology’. Firewall technology is an indigenously developed technology that involves the use of nano-engineered particles that are embedded in the polymer matrix of plywood, giving it best in class fire-fighting properties

Plywood enriched with this technology performs far superior under standard test conditions to the benchmarks specified by Indian Standards IS 5509, American standards ASTM E84 and British standards BS 476 when measured against critical parameters like flammability, spreadability, penetration, and smoke-developed index. This makes this range of plywood the best in class when it comes to the prevention of fire and fire-related accidents.

Some noteworthy parameters on why you should invest in plywood with firewall technology are as follows:

1. Low spreadability -

Plywood enriched with firewall technology delay the spread of the fire and do not act as a medium for the fire to spread rapidly. Additionally, the revolutionary firewall technology also self-extinguishes once the source of the fire is removed.

2. Low smoke emission -

In the case of fire, the toxic fumes that are produced can lead to suffocation and can even be fatal. However, with fire-retardant plywood, the rate of smoke emission is impressively low when compared to normal plywood and thereby provides you with enough time to exit the premises.

3. Low fire penetration rate -

It takes about 50 minutes for the fire to spread over 19 mm plywood enriched with Firewall Technology. This gives you enough time to locate the source of fire and extinguish it before much harm is caused.

4. Non-Hygroscopicity-

The Firewall technology is unabsorbent to moisture and hence prevents hardware elements in your kitchen from getting corroded. This thereby keeps the structural integrity of the plywood in case of the unfortunate event of a fire.

5. Borer and Termite Proof-

Not just from fire, this plywood also protects you from pests that aim to destroy your furniture. With the use of a special Glue line Protection, this fire-retardant plywood not only resists termite attacks but also completely destroys them. Thereby, keeping you stress-free when it comes to the hygiene of your kitchen.

6. Duplicate Proof-

With a plethora of options available in the market, it can be confusing to choose the right fire-retardant plywood. However, with CenturyPly we ensure that you get the best quality available in the country as these plywood are duplicate proof with Century Promise. You also receive a lifetime warranty with ArchitectPly when you opt for CenturyPly products with Firewall Technology.
