Firefree Coatings (“Firefree”) has tested its Firefree Exterior System to comply with California Building Code (CBC), SFM 12-7A-3 conditions in accordance with ASTM E 2957 for fire resistance to wildfire flame penetration of eaves, soffits and ignition-resistant materials to other assembly projections including (deck structures, cantilevers…).
Success in this severe test, involving temperatures up to 1700 F (920 C), is a critical advance in wildfire protection as in many cases fire destruction happens when the flames go up the sidings, go to the eaves with maximum intensity and move into the attics.
This is another layer in the Wildfire protection provided by the Firefree Exterior System, which is the only coating system that meets all the fire and weatherization standards required by the Wildland Urban Interface (“WUI”), as prescribed in the California Building Standards Code Section 704A. These standards include (i) the ASTM E2768-30 for ignition resistance (ASTM E84 30 Minute Extended), and (ii) the ASTM D2898 method B for weatherization.
Firefree is the leading developer of cost-efficient intumescent fire retardant and fire resistant technologies that help prevent the spread of fire, smoke and toxic gases during a fire, thus giving occupants extra time to evacuate and limit the destruction of property. Ff88 and FfA are tested at third party accredited, International Accreditation Service (IAS), fire testing laboratories and are listed/inspected by ICC ES, FM Approvals. Firefree is a member of NFPA, ICC-ES and ASTM E-05 Committees.
Firefree sells and ships products in all five continents for private, corporate, and governmental projects, with customers and projects all over the world from the Americas (US, Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica…) to Europe (Belgium, France, Germany, Spain, United Kingdom…), Asia (Australia, India, Indonesia, Philippines, New Guinea, New Zealand, South Korea…), Africa (Nigeria…) and the Middle East (Saudi Arabia, Oman, Kuwait…).
