SUSTAINABLE TIMBER

SUSTAINABLE TIMBER

Plantation grown Radiata pine is the timber of choice for FLAMEfixx dFx®. Radiata pine is versatile by nature, with beautiful colours and grains and offers structural strength. A key feature of Radiata pine is its ability to be readily impregnated with the dFx® solution. This allows it to achieve the desired performance benefits for exterior, above ground bush fire protection. FLAMEfixx dFx® Radiata pine is readily grown in Australia New Zealand & Chile.

HEALTH, SAFETY & ENVIRONMENTAL

HEALTH, SAFETY & ENVIRONMENTAL

FLAMEfixx dFx® meets the health, safety & environmental requirements for currently approved wood preservatives. The flame-retardant is an inorganic metal oxide which is fixed in the timber. On combustion, the retardant reverts to its original, natural, inorganic form. The result is no adverse environmental issues with air emissions & residual ash. Smoke inhalation is the leading cause of fire-related deaths. A key factor in determining human safety is reducing smoke. FLAMEfixx dFx® is an arsenic-free product and safe for use in high contact surface areas including playgrounds, decking, pergolas, patios.
