Fire Hazard From Composite Timber

Fire-Resistant Decking and Framing - This Old House

Most wood species are rated Class C for fire resistance, but you can build safer with a Class A–rated composite decking like AmeraDeck, made from PVC and wood fiber. Not all composite decking is created equal, though—be sure to check fire ratings before you buy. $2.15 per lineal foot. AmeraDeck, Chandler, AZ; 877-788-1887. Pressure-Treated Wood

Wood vs Composite Decking: Pros and Cons | Laydex

Fire safety. Composite decking is the safer way to go when it comes to fire hazards, too. While timber could quickly ignite and help spread a fire, composite boards restrict this from happening. Teranna Ever-Deck is manufactured to achieve a Class B fire rating, so flames will be slow to spread in the event of any fire accident.

Fire safety in timber buildings

The predictability of timber products in fire is such that most timber products can be declared to known reaction to fire classifi cations (Table 1). The Euroclass classification is set out in EN 13501-110 and Table 2. Within the CE marking process there is a requirement to declare the reaction to fire for timber products.

Fire Pit Safety Tips | HGTV

In wood-stoked fire pits, safety begins with fuel. Only burn wood that’s been seasoned at least six months. Avoid using construction materials, such as plywood or composite woods, which can release toxic fumes when burned. Softwoods, like pine and birch, tend to produce more crackles and sparks than seasoned hardwoods, like oak or hickory.
