INNOWOOD can produce a performance formulation upon request that can achieve Group 1 fire rating in accordance to AS/NZS 3837 – Specification 2.4 of BCA
Fire safety is highly regulated in Australia’s building industry but meeting existing fire performance requirements does not mean having to sacrifice the use of internal and external architectural timber products.
The INNOWOOD composite timber material has been tested to achieve up to a Group 1 rating (ASNZS 3837 – Specification A2.4 of BCA) or up to BAL- 29 Rating (AS3959:2009 – Construction of Building in Bushfire Prone Areas, Appendix F), Upon request based on specific project requirements. INNOWOOD Boards can achieve these ratings with the option of high performance formulas that have been modified from the standard formulation, whilst still maintaining the natural look and feel of real timber.
COMMITMENT TO THE ENVIRONMENT
INNOWOOD materials are 100% recyclable & sustainable and aim to protect the environment by recycling the material that would otherwise be destined for the landfill.
