Flame Retardant Treatments for Timber – An Overview
19 January 2023
Flame Retardant (FR) chemical treatments for timber work by reducing its ignitability, slowing down the surface spread of flame and, as a result, reducing the heat released. This allows more time for escape in a fire situation.
These effects can improve the material’s ‘reaction to fire’ classification significantly.

Reconfiguring and extending a studio flat at the rear of a converted Edwardian house, this project by Christian Brailey Architects is a celebration of the characteristics and craftsmanship of timber.
