flame resistance

Flame Spread Resistance

Will My Deck Resist Flame Spread?

All species of our decking have up to a class A rating for flame spread. Unlike softer woods and composites that melt or spread fire rapidly, the density of our hardwoods helps contain any exposed flame around its point of origin. This makes our decking a great option for homes in dry brush areas and other fire-prone regions.
