Upgrading wood surfaces within building structures to a fire rate specification is now a common requirement. Building Regulations are specific in stating two main categories where certain structures and surfaces may need to be upgraded.
FIRE PROTECTION RATING 30-60 MINUTES
The first category is to ensure that the structural elements of a building designed to support a load (i.e. floor joists that bear the overall floor structure), maintain their load-bearing capacity.
The fire ratings required for load-bearing elements is generally measured in an amount of time that that building element is required to maintain its structural strength.
SPREAD OF FLAME RATING CLASS 0&1
The second category is commonly known as “Spread of Flame” protection. This is a fire-rating that is specific to how a particular substrate can prevent a fire from spreading across its surface. An untreated wooden paneled wall would have no resistance to the spread of flame across its surface and cause the fire to spread into the rest of the building.
This rating is measured in two classifications: Class 1 or Class 0 Spread of Flame. Quality control procedures accredited to ISO 9001 standard are implemented.
