Fire Retardant… Wood?

Newly introduced in the U.S. from its home in Wales, Lignia Fire™ is wood with built-in flame-retardant properties, and it’s being specified for everything from homes (including the new Symbi Homes installation in Mount Rainier, MD.) to institutional buildings. It has earned a Class A flame-spread rating extended to 30 minutes (ASTM E2768), and with no need for aftermarket fire treatment it’s proving popular with architects across the U.S. In September, Lignia Fire won The Architect’s Newspaper Best of Product Award (Timber Category), and it also received a special mention at the 2020 Architizer A+Awards – an accolade that is only given to the top 5% of entrants. Suitable for interior and exterior use, Lignia Fire is approved for use in schools across the U.S. as it has passed the CDPH Emissions Compliance Test. Applications for this product include decking and siding, as well as millwork projects such as windows and doors.
