Rex Lumber Company offers fire retardant treated mouldings that are run from 4/4 Red Oak and 4/4 through 8/4 Poplar.
Our fire retardant treatment is Dricon from Arch Chemicals. Kiln dried lumber is pressure treated to 100% penetration at a licensed pressure treating plant. This is not a surface treatment or coating. Following treatment, Dricon treated wood is re-dried to a moisture content of 6-8%
Dricon fire retardant treated material qualifies as a CLASS A/CLASS 1 fire retardant with flame spread and smoke development rating of 25 or less.
Rex Lumber Company is the only moulding and millwork manufacturer that is authorized by Arch Chemicals (Dricon’s manufacturer) to perform unlimited millwork to Dricon treated red oak and poplar. Our millwork, re-drying procedures and recording practices are routinely audited by an independent third party auditor. We can rip, plane, resaw, glue, and make custom mouldings.
With Rex Lumber Company’s extensive millwork capabilities, we can make virtually any profile, panel, or component. Rex provides a copy of the FRT treatment certificate with the invoice as verification that the products shipped were manufactured properly from that FRT load of material..
For “green” projects, we can provide DRICON Fire retardant treatment to FSC® certified Red Oak and Poplar; making the product both Class A fire rated and LEED compliant
For large projects requiring fire retardant lumber, yields can be improved and waste reduced by pre-selecting and pre-ripping /crosscutting blanks prior to treatment.
In addition to Dricon treated products in Red oak and poplar, we offer primer with fire retardant additives- reaching a Class A rating. Clear fire retardant coatings are also available for other species requiring a Class A fire rating.
