Alternative Fire rating options were not realistic and without the F1E may have resulted in the timber cladding element being replaced.
Fireshell F1E was applied to the timber cladding.
The performance requirements of the project were met with the existing design being preserved and the timber surface protected.
Fireshell® F1E is an exterior, waterborne, non-hazardous, self-priming, flexible intumescent coating.
It provides an ignition and flame spread barrier on external combustible surfaces. Achieves AS3959 bushfire resting timber compliance including accelerated weathering compliance for softwoods BAL12.5, BAL19 & BAL29. ISO 5660 compliant for external timber cladding and a range of risk reduction solutions for external combustible surfaces.
