Watch back the timber and fire safety webinar

Gain insight into the principles of fire safety when designing and construction timber buildings from the creators of our latest resource,, in this special one hour webinar.

On 1 March, the timber industry (Swedish WoodTimber Development UK, and Structural Timber Association) launched a comprehensive new fire safety website: Fire Safety. Wood in Construction.

This is a new tool which aims to give users a single point of access to information and guidance on this multi-faceted and safety-critical subject. It is designed for all construction professionals and is available, free, at

Supported by the timber industry, this resource was developed by a group of technical and industry experts from the UK and Sweden independently, providing verified introduction to timber and fire safety information.

With this new resource, the timber industry is hoping to support users by building confidence in the approach of architects, engineers, contractors, installers and all other related parties around the principles of timber and fire safety.

Referencing European standards where appropriate, but with a focus on UK regulations and standards, the site is designed so that a range of different users can explore subjects at different levels of detail as relevant to their role and interests.
