The existing timber on this older property required a long-term fire resistant paint solution to help protect from ember attack radiant heat and prevent ignition and flame spread.
Fireshell F1E was chosen not only because of its active intumescent properties and test performance on timber but also due to its ability to offer a flexible long-term fire retardant paint option on existing timber surfaces.
Fireshell F1E formed an important part of the customer’s extensive fire upgrade and risk reduction solution for their property. See video below for more information on the comprehensive bushfire safety upgrade of their property.

Achieves AS3959 bushfire resting timber compliance including accelerated weathering compliance for softwoods BAL12.5, BAL19 & BAL29.
