SterlingOSB Zero Fire Solutions

Reduce the risk of fire spread during construction of timber frame buildings. SterlingOSB Zero Fire Solutions has been developed specifically in response to the STA (Structural Timber Association) published guidelines for reducing fire spread in large (total floor area >600m2) timber frame buildings during the construction phase when fire resistant finishes (dry lining) are not yet in place. The purpose of these guidelines is to reduce potential radiant heat emissions to acceptable levels, so that the risk of fire spread to neighbouring buildings is controlled should a fire occur during the construction process.

Key features:

  • Fully compliant with the Building Regulation fire protection requirements** to match the generic categories of timber frame in STA published guidelines
  • Reduces potential radiant heat emissions to reduce the risk of fire spread to neighbouring buildings during construction
  • All the inherent benefits of SterlingOSB Zero OSB3
  • SterlingOSB Zero FS-300 SterlingOSB Zero OSB3 15mm / 18mm with intumescent coating on both sides of the panel
  • Suitable for FR Build decking

*SterlingOSB Zero Fire Solutions is intended to reduce the risk of fire spread during construction before other fire resistant measures are in place. Full details available upon request.
