Overview of the Flameproof Companies
Founded in 1991, with locations in Chicago, Illinois; Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Fort Worth, Texas, the Flameproof Companies (CFP) have become an established and innovative presence in fire retardant lumber and plywood products.
While the company remains committed to the traditional vacuum impregnation method of chemically treating fire retardant lumber and plywood, we have also endeavored to develop innovative new fire retardant technologies.
The MagTechTM fire retardant OSB and plywood process truly breaks new ground in fire retardant panel technology. By incorporating –– through lamination –– a thin panel of reinforced magnesium oxide onto either one or both sides of OSB or plywood panels, the Flameproof Companies have raised the bar for both flameproof and structural properties of fire retardant panels.
The enhanced physical properties of MagTechTM fire retardant panels give architects, engineers and owners a “step up,” a premium product choice where none has previously existed.
Vastly better dimensional stability, greater structural performance, along with flame spread ratings much improved over conventional fire retardant panels, are now available by specifying and using MagTechTM panel products. These patent pending products are sure to be recognized as a significant progression in fire retardant panel products.
MagTechTM products are available for shipment throughout the United States and Canada.
