A fire rated product is an improved board that burns slower to reduce the spread of fire throughout the building, and thereby ensuring the occupants are safe and increase the time they have to evacuate. Fire rated products are broken down in to group ratings, and in particular locations (schools, nursing homes, hospitals and places of public entertainment) it is code to have a high group rating – group 1.
The benefits of using a fire rated product include the following:
- Durable for long lasting panels
- They are the better environmental choice
- Safer for humans and can be overall a healthier option
- Generally easier to recycle at the end of its life
- When pre-finished correctly no dangerous toxic chemical
