When fire takes hold, time is everything. Precious minutes can mean the difference between life and death.
The ingredients in DRICON fire retardant treated timber and panel products dramatically reduce the surface spread of flame, heat and smoke release during a fire, giving you the time you need to get out safely.
A commercially proven global brand, DRICON is backed by extensive independent certification including over 25 years of BBA accreditation and more than 30 years of fire performance experience.
Panel products are impregnated on all faces and applied in a stringently controlled, industrial vacuum pressure process at a specialist treatment centre - the only one of its type in the UK, operating with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 accreditations.
There is no need to re-apply fire retardant protection throughout the life of the board. Independent test data demonstrated no change in fire performance of DRICON treated plywood after 21 years in use.
