The New Best Practice For Mass Timber Is Heading To The Fire Laboratory For E119 Testing

May 24, 2019 by Steve Conboy

The New Best Practice For Mass Timber Is Heading To Its E119 Fire Laboratory Test. This 3ply mass timber has been fire defended with our AAA infusion patented technology and will be burned side by side with the typical raw mass timber to prove it will lower charing. If mass timbers E119 is all about charring depth our AAA will prove to make it have much less of a charring rate. Our goal has always been to make mass timber buildings safer to live and work in making them safer for first responders. Our AAA Fire protection will soon prove it lowers loss during construction and we hope it will support lowering risk premiums to make mass timber buildings even more attractive to our national builders over steel high.. The mass timber movement has proven better ground movement and high wind loads engineering. Even raw mass timber is safer in fire because steel fails faster in heat then big thick wood panels and columns and when AAA is added its even safer. This new Best Practice AAA fire protection is already supported already by our E84 extended laboratory test results and a White Paper proving it to be zero in flame spread and 20 in smoke index and now in this E119 it will prove less charring.

We are huge supporters of this mass timber movement because our Carbon Tax Credit Bill is on the Hill now hoping one day for Congress to approve it to support our national builders that agree with us that all lumber built buildings should framed with fire treated lumber. The Mass Timber Movement also supports our US Reforestation Programs and those young’s trees we planet sequester CO2. That CO2 turns in clean air and leaves behind tons of carbon in lumber. Its that carbon we are defending by adding fire protection to the lumber so the carbon is never released back into the ozone. If this carbon tax credit bill is past its bigger then anything LEED or the FSC movement.

We use only Mid Columbia Lumber in our AAA fire protected Mass Timber and we take short length lumber and finger joint it together to make lumber as long as 48’. Its that lumber we fire defended before mass timber is glued up because our fire infusion has no negative impact the glue used to finger joint or laminate. This fire treated lumber is the most renewable sustainable lumber ever produced in the USA. How can any lumber today be called sustainable when we are losing million of board feet to fire each year. Fire protecting all wood framed buildings is better for all humans and our planet and it makes things safer for our brave Fire Fighters in rescue.

Mass Timber Buildings Factory Type Lego Buildings is gearing up to be the future even over 5 story over podium stick built affordable housing because the US labor shortage is choking our builder critical path out on job sites all around the USA. Already in the U.S., buildings as large as 156,000 square feet and eight stories tall have been built in Portland. Seattle allows the use of CLT in buildings up to six stories.

Tokyo skyscraper is set to become the world's tallest wooden building. Japanese company Sumitomo Forestry says its 1,148-feet-tall timber tower will be completed in 2041, to mark the 350th anniversary of the business that year. The W350 tower will cost an estimated 600 billion yen ($5.6 billion) to build. The 70-story tower will be a hybrid structure made from 90% wooden materials. A steel vibration-control framework will underpin the design -- an important feature in a city where earthquakes are frequent. Other companies in the U.S. and Canada are also pressing ahead with innovations, making the future of mass timber virtually unlimited.

We are big supporter of mass timber that thinks by adding additional fire protection will help the movement grow even faster by removing the negative perception on raw wood by adding AAA fire protection says Steve Conboy
