Why Autoclave?

For many years Fire-Proof bvba has been a partner of building contractors, woodtraders, joiners and façade builders with regards to fire resistant vacuum pressure treatments of wood After an autoclave treatment, wood will reach the highest possible European fire resistance class Bs2(s1)d0. This is possible for both indoor and outdoor applications.

European legislation has required wooden facades of medium-sized buildings to require a Bs3d1 fire resistance class. In order to obtain this classification, wood must be treated in an autoclave under vacuum pressure.

Testing and reports for your project

Fire-Proof bvba advises its clients in the legislative field and also helps with the preparation of official tests.

Fire-Proof bvba owns an extensive portfolio of fire retardant tests on wood, carried out at Exova WarringtonFire Gent.

For testing new and less common wood types, Fire-Proof can also assist with research, thanks to its expertise and a special mini-autoclave for test projects.
