Recommended ApplicationsInterior applications where BCA rating is required, including interior wall and ceiling panelling, cabinetry, and furniture. FRMDF can be surfaced with timber veneer, paint, paper, vinyl, foils, High-Pressure Melamine, and Low-Pressure Melamine Laminates.
FRMDF should not be used in close proximity to fireplaces or heaters, in external or structural applications nor used or stored in proximity to water, damp or high humidity areas such as showers. The fire retardant materials and dyes in the board may, in exceptional cases, affect certain glues or paints. Always perform a test before use.
Group 2 Fire Certificate processPlease note, we have updated the Group 2 Fire Certificate process for Flameblock® FRMDF. Instead of generic certificates, each Flameblock® sale will come with a unique Certificate Number. If you require a copy, please contact us.
For specifiers, architects, and designers, a unique Certificate can be provided for each project. This Certificate Number will be passed through the supply chain, from the fabricator to Bord Products, and to you. When ordering Flameblock®, please use this Certificate Number.
The Flameblock® Certificate is exclusive to Flameblock® FRMDF and doesn't apply to other brands. This change aims to enhance product tracing and compliance with the National Construction Code.
Additionally, note that group numbers in the report only apply to flat, un-slotted, non-routed panels. Please seek the advice of a Fire Engineer Consultant or Building Certifier to advise what Fire Hazard Group Numbers are required for your application.
FRMDF has low formaldehyde emissions (E1) and is available as FSC® Certified or PEFC certified on request (subject to market availability). Please notify us when placing your order.
