What Is Fire-Retardant Treated Wood (FRTW)?

Fire-Retardant Treated Wood (FRTW) is lumber that has been impregnated with specialized, fire-retardant chemicals under high pressure. These chemicals insulate the underlying wood and reduce the amount of heat/flammable volatiles released during a fire. In turn, this helps prevent the spread of internal fires. Below you will find the types of fire-retardant materials we carry. Download our Datasheet for information on fire-retardant lumber.
