Fire Rated Timber Systems

Fire Rated Timber Systems

Zone Architectural Products proudly bring you the FireZone™ range of products for New Zealand and Australia.

Zone combine expert technical advice with a preferred installer network to bring the construction industry a range of fire protection systems for timber you can specify with confidence.

The fully water based, low VOC range of FireZone™ products, comprises of four core systems which both enable new construction and encourage the use of existing surfaces, to help with compliance. This includes, but is not limited to Clear and Pigmented systems for:

  • Internal FRR upgrades,
  • Surface Finish requirements,
  • Solution(s) for boundary compliance on external weatherboards

FireZone™ 52, 92 and Vanguard are designed to achieve Group Surface finish requirements (1 / 1S / 2 / 2S / 3) and Group 1 or 2 in Australia on an extensive range of timber substrates, including thermally modified, acetylated and Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT).

We are passionate about timber as a renewable resource and the effects it has on the built space for health and wellbeing. Using the FireZone™ range with no red list chemicals for fire treatment of timber, allows those design decisions to still include solid timber.
