FRTW Applications

D-Blaze® Fire Retardant Treated Wood Applications

D-Blaze pressure-treated lumber and plywood are designed for interior wood framing and sheathing applications where fire retardant construction materials are specified or required by building code.

 fire-retardant treated wood (FRTW) is highly effective at slowing down the spread of flame and smoke caused by fire, increasing evacuation time, and potentially reducing damages and repair costs. D-Blaze FRTW effectively slows the combustion cycle of fire by forming a protective layer of char, hindering flame spread and smoke formation.

over 35 years of proven performance and backed by a 50-Year Limited Warranty, D-Blaze FRTW is protected against structural failure due to strength loss caused by high temperature and high humidity conditions.
