    Properly classify, test, and apply FRTW materials using the 2018 edition of NFPA 703: Standard for Fire Retardant-Treated Wood and Fire-Retardant Coatings for Building Materials.

    NFPA 703 provides enforcers, engineers, and architects with the industry's most advanced criteria for defining and identifying fire retardant-treated wood (FRTW) and fire-retardant coatings for building materials. This Standard helps regulate that the materials are properly classified and tested, for greater confidence in fire safety.

    Reference the 2018 edition of NFPA 703 for the full picture on FRTW.

    In addition to specific applications for the use of fire retardant-treated material, the 2018 edition clarifies requirements for fire-retardant-treated wood. The Standard's chapters cover every topic including:

    • Application
    • Interior applications
    • Exposure to weather
    • Moisture content
    • Labeling
    • Tests
    • Maintenance of protection

    This edition also updates references to other NFPA® codes and standards as well as other documents. Engineers, architects, and producers, and AHJs all need to understand how FRTW works and how to classify and test it correctly. (Print, 16 pp., 2018)
