Jensen Hughes, a global leader in safety, security and risk-based fire engineering, codes and standards revisions have recently highlighted the engineering fire comparison between testing to NFPA 286 vs UL 1715, highlighting 11 major undisputable differences between the two methods.
Jensen Hughes was very clear that the safest path to compliance as an Alternative Thermal Barrier is NFPA 286 testing.
Innovative Fire Protection Solutions and Designs
DC360 is a water based intumescent fire retardant coating designed to increase fire resistance ratings of construction materials. These materials include: OSB, plywood, lumber, gypsum and many other substrate.
DC5040 is a water based thin film intumescent coating providing fire resistance to I-Joist and engineered wood framing members. Applied to the I-Joist only, once the I-Joist are installed, DC5040 provides equivalence to the 2-by-10-dimension lumber prescribed in Section R302.13, Exception 4 of the 2015 IRC® and Section R501.3, Exception 4 of the 2012 IRC®.
Spray to Protect DC68 is a water based fire proofing spray. Our top-grade spray is a Non Toxic, Hypoallergenic, colorless and odorless formula! Furthermore, it can be used on virtually any water absorbent fabric or material.
