Safety First, With Firewall Technology Plywood By CenturyPly


Preventing fire accidents at home is important for the safety of your family and your belongings. When it comes to fireproofing your home, one of the best materials you can use is fireproof plywood. Fireproof plywood is a specially treated type of plywood that is designed to resist burning and charring. While regular plywood will burn if exposed to high enough temperatures, fireproof plywood is much more resistant to heat and flames. This makes it an ideal choice for use in areas with fire risks, such as around fireplaces or in kitchens.

What is CenturyPly’s Firewall Technology?

CenturyPly’s Firewall Technology is an innovative solution to fire hazards. Fireproof plywood made with Firewall Technology prevents your property from getting damaged and saves lives.

Regular plywood is highly flammable by nature. CenutryPly makes fireproof plywood by saturating it with nano-engineered particles that significantly reduce the flammability of plywood.

Where Can You Use CenturyPly Firewall Plywood?

CenturyPly Firewall Plywood is suitable for places with the highest risk of fire hazards. Some of the most common places, like the kitchen, the laundry room, and the garage, are the most vulnerable as they have highly flammable materials. In addition, rooms with many wooden furniture or structures are at risk too.

●​​​​​​​ In Kitchen: Kitchens are at constant risk of fire hazards. You can secure your kitchen using fireproof plywood to make cabinets and shelves.

●​​​​​​​ Home Interior: Fire-resistant plywood can be used in residential structures for hallways and ceiling support. It can preserve the structural integrity of the building in an emergency, giving families valuable time to flee as firefighters work to put out the fire. Additionally, it can be utilised for internal room dividers to increase safety.

●​​​​​​​ Furniture-making: Fireproof plywood is available in different thicknesses. Therefore, they can be used to make all types of furniture.

Why is CenturyPly Firewall the Safer Choice?

There are several fireproof plywoods available. However, not all are as effective in real-life situations. The following are some reasons why CenturyPly’s fireproof plywood made with Firewall Technology is the safer choice for you-

● IS 5509 Compliant Plywood: CenturyPly’s fire retardant plywood complies with the IS 5509 standards.

● Conforms to ASTM E84 Standard: CenturyPly’s fireproof plywood also matches International quality standards. It conforms to the ASTM E84 standards of the American Society For Testing And Materials.

● Enhanced Fire Resistance: The raw material that goes into creating plywood is wood. Therefore, it is highly flammable. However, the nano-engineered particles used to create the CenturyPly Fire retardant plywood increases its fire resistance.

● Less Smoke Emission: Large smoke emissions from a fire outbreak could result in a more serious accident. Extreme suffocation might also result from the toxic fumes emitted along with this smoke. Fireproof plywood, on the other hand, aids in lowering smoke emissions, limiting any additional damage.

● Slow Fire Spread: A flame spread index is a systematic approach to measuring flame spread. Ratings for flame spread range from 0-200. The highest class, Class A, has an index of 0–25. Common-grade plywoods have a flame spread index of 75 to 200. However, CenturyPly fire-retardant plywood has a 12 flame spread index. Therefore, it does not burn easily as a result.

● Non hygroscopic: Since plywood created with Firewall Technology does not absorb any water from the air, damage to plywood furniture is prevented.

● Termite and Borer proof: Fireproof CenturyPly plywoods are treated with repellents that can prevent termites and other insects from damaging your furniture.

● Long Warranty: All CenturyPly fireproof plywood comes with a warranty.

● Aesthetic Appeal: You do not have to compromise on aesthetics to secure your home. CenturyPly fireproof plywood has a naturally smooth finish that can be used to create aesthetically appealing furniture.


While no home is ever completely fireproof, taking some simple steps to make your home more secure can go a long way. To make your home as secure as possible, it’s important to use high-quality materials that are fireproof and resistant to pests and rot. CenturyPly fire retardant plywood made with Firewall Technology is a great option, as it meets all of these criteria and is affordable. By choosing the right materials for your home, you can rest assured knowing that your investment is well-protected.
