Why Firefighters Can Trust LP® FlameBlock®

This year, LP Building Products is a proud sponsor of the Firehouse Expo, which welcomes thousands of fire chiefs and other firefighting professionals from across the nation. It’s the #1 showcase for new tools, training and technology used in firefighting. 

At the Expo and beyond, we’re helping educate fire safety professionals on the benefits of fire-rated building products such as LP® FlameBlock® Fire-Rated OSB Sheathing and I-Joists. There are many misconceptions about wood as a potential fire hazard in construction. However, there have been huge strides made in fire-resistant engineered wood products.

Here are some of the reasons firefighters can rely on LP FlameBlock products:

  • LP FlameBlock sheathing combines burn-through resistance and flame spread resistance in a single panel.
  • It’s a component of many rigorously tested UL® and Intertek® listed wall assemblies.
  • LP FlameBlock I-Joists add code-compliant fire protection to floor systems.
  • LP is a strong advocate for code compliance.  As you know, fires are in some cases caused by failure to meet code requirements, including use of non-compliant materials. 

LP strives to continuously improve its fire-resistant products in order to give firefighters the precious time they need to do their jobs. We thank all the guests who attended our LP FlameBlock presentation or stopped by the LP Building Products booth!
