Category: Timber Frame

Yes – all materials are tested and certified in accordance with appropriate European standards, including our timber. Our insulation and plaster board is also A1 rated for fire resistance. In fact, a large number of homes in Ireland are constructed using a timber frame structure on the upper floor. Every roof is also timber so there is most certainly no cause for concern.

In fact – when timber burns, the outer parts char and become charcoal. Charcoal insulates against heat and does not burn which means that the structural centre of the timber is protected from damage. Fire break sleeves are also added to the cavity of each intersection which prevents spread through in the event of a fire.
