Dricon® FRT Wood Carries a Stamp You Can Trust
Product substitution can be dangerous! The “or equivalent” phrase in a specification can be an open door for products to enter the market without proper code compliance. Avoid job holds, tear downs, and safety issues by specifying Dricon® Fire Retardant Treated Wood (FRTW) for all of your fire retardant needs. Whether you’re using plywood or lumber, Dricon® FRTW has performed as intended for 35 years providing protection against flame spread, smoke development, rot and decay. ICC’s Accep-tance Criteria for Fire Retardant Treated Wood (AC66) states the requirements for FRT lumber and plywood products. Dricon® fire retardant has met these requirements and the ICC-ES has issued Evaluation Service Report (ESR1626) that documents compliance with AC66.
Look for the stamp! It signifies a code compliant FRT product. Dricon® FRTW producers stamp each piece of wood so there’s no doubt that your lumber and plywood are treated properly and to the highest standard.
