Timber materials and products
Although timber is combustible – it ignites and flames spread over the surface – the build-up of charcoal on the surface limits the oxygen supply to the underlying timber and acts as an insulator. Therefore, in a fire, the timber below the charred layer is relatively cool and retains its structural integrity. Also, timber burns at a known rate related to its density.
