OPTIMUM PROTECTION

FLAMEfixx dFx® products have been extensively tested to ensure optimal protection against Australian Bush fires. FLAMEfixx dFx® timber products exceed the requirements of BAL-29 set out in the Australian Standard AS 3959-2018 “Construction of buildings in bush fire-prone areas.”

CARE & MAINTAINANCE

Like all natural timbers, applying a coating is highly recommended. For best results, use penetrating oils, stains or other timber coatings on all FLAMEfixx dFx® products to protect against water ingress, cracking & checking.

IDENTIFICATION

All packs are wrapped in plastic with the distinctive ITI FLAMEfixx dFx® logo & brand. All decking and screening boards are edge-branded with the logo, the Hazard Class [H3], treatment plant number & chemical identification number all in a single, rectangular grid.

FASTENERS

It is recommended that fasteners used with FLAMEfixx dFx® products are 304 Extreme stainless steel, 316 stainless steel or hot-dipped galvanised.

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.

PLAYGROUND SAFE

The active ingredients in aquazole; propiconazole and tebuconazole are non-metallic compounds commonly used as fungicides for food crops such as cereals, rice and stone fruits making FLAMEfixx dFx® safe for playgrounds.

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, garden edging.
