[PDF]FIRE PERFORMANCE GUIDE TO TIMBER CLADDING
To understand why timber cladding is recognised for its fire resistant qualities it is important to first understand how timber burns. When timber is first exposed to temperatures of above 280°C the surface layer of the wood ignites and burns. This layer rapidly turns into char becoming a thermal insulator for the solid wood that lies beneath it.
What is A1 A2 and B Fire classification of Cladding ...
Apr 03 2020 The cladding materials that fall under the A1 fire classification are ones with the highest performance. These materials are non-combustible in nature and have no contribution to fire at all. A2 Classification. The construction cladding materials of A2 cladding have limited combustibility properties. They have very limited contribution towards the fire.
