Fire Retardant Treated Timber
When fire protection is required for construction timbers it is vital that you have a proven treatment you can trust.

The highly controlled treatments impregnate all faces of the timber or board products, creating a permanent long term protection that requires no maintenance - a real benefit over short lived products and site applied and uncontrolled fire retardant coating products.
