Why does upgrading to Fire Resistant plywood matter?

CenturyPly Firewall Technology safeguards your furniture and interiors at the time of a fire accident. It allows gradual penetration of fire and non toxic fumes. It is reliable and well tested extensively across different conditions and meets the highest standards of safety. The flame spread index of CenturyPly fire resistant plywood is 12, indicating that it has class A properties. Hence this plywood will not burn easily. CenturyPly Firewall Technology helps in protecting furniture from fire in many ways:

1. Thick Insulation-

It prevents flames from burning the plywood easily through a thick layer of insulation. The Firewall coating does not let the fire penetrate easily and burn the material.

2. Slow Fire Penetration-

It prevents heat from passing through your plywood material, thus making it rough for flames to jump from one area to another.

3. Prevents Suffocation-

CenturyPly Firewall Technology keeps out toxic fumes released during a fire accident, which would otherwise cause serious damage to walls, respiration issues and even asphyxiation to anyone present within the room.

Well tested Class-A plywood

In the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), Fire retardant properties are defined as per Class A, Class B and Class C. This is majorly classified by the combination of Spread of fire and Smoke emission Index. CenturyPly Firewall Technology Plywood has nailed the testing parameters with a:

●       Flame Spread Index of 12

●       Smoke Development Index of 155, 

making it a Class A plywood.

In British Standard Specifications (BS Norms), fire retardant properties are classified based on testing a plywood for its flame spread at 90 seconds and 10 minutes. On the basis of this test, the plywood is classified as Class 1, 2, 3, and 4. As per the regulations, the CenturyPly Firewall Plywood falls under the Class 1 product category.
