Why Your Home should be built with Protected Wood

As shown in these pictures, the basic frame of a home is lumber and plywood in a configuration that promotes rapid flame spread. Without fire rated wood, any small source of ignition becomes a huge fire spreading through the entire structure within minutes. With construction using Pyro-Guard® framing and plywood, ignition is much more difficult and flame spread is substantially slowed or contained.

In addition to fire protection, Pyro-Guard® provides excellent resistance to decay and termites in interior applications.

Someday all homes will be built with fire rated materials, but Pyro-Guard® is available and affordable today!

Pyro-Guard® framing and plywood cut, nail, and install exactly the same as untreated wood. The use of protected wood framing and plywood in a home may help reduce insurance costs and increase resale value of the home.
