Fire protection of wooden structures

Promat offers a wide range of officially tested solutions for special fire protection problems which arise in the case of wooden constructions and those which occur during the modernisation and reconstruction of old buildings. Timber framed walls, wooden post and beam walls, which have up to 90 minutes fire resistance with PROMATECT® products, are officially certified for both load-bearing and non-load-bearing functions.

Load-bearing timber frames

Girders and columns made of wood attain fire resistance classes of up to 90 minutes with linings made of PROMATECT® fire protection boards.

Timber frame ceilings

Wooden beam ceilings with linings made from PROMATECT® fire protection boards attain high fire resistance times with low board thicknesses. Cement-bound PROMATECT®-H boards have proved especially advantageous for linings due to their high stability and low weight.

Timber rafter roofs

PROMATECT® linings as lightweight and economic solutions are also ideal for wooden beam roofs exposed to fire from the underside of the roof. The structures can be used for flat roofs or roofs with all angles of inclination.
