PROTEKTOR II FIRE PROTECTION SYSTEM FOR MULTI-FAMILY BUILDINGS
All of our fire retardant products (OSB, dimensional lumber) are designed specifically for multi-family wood frame construction and commercial building applications in Canada.
The ProTEKtor II Fire Protection system was developed to be highly weatherable and durable due to them having light to medium exposure to the elements during the build process.
When this system is used in its entirety there are insurance reductions available directly from Lloyd’s of London through your respective broker.

Homes in Alberta are built during all four seasons and need proven, reliable fire protection regardless of exposure to sun, rain, or snow.

HOW FIRE STARTS
the 3 elements needed for fire
· Fire starts when the 3 elements; oxygen, fuel and heat are combined.
· To prevent fire, BarrierTEK fire retardant removes all three of the elements needed for fire to start and burn.
HOW THE BARRIERTEK MULTI LEVEL
THERMAL PROTECTION SYSTEM WORKS
1. BarrierTEK protective coatings are applied to wood OSB and dimensional lumber using an automated process for consistent application.
2. When the paint heats up, a reaction occurs pulling oxygen away from the substrate.
3. The heated paint intumesces (foams up) 1 inch creating an insulation barrier between the substrate and heat source.
PROTEKTOR II SYSTEM FOR MULTI-FAMILY
1-6 STOREY WOOD FRAME CONSTRUCTION
ProTEKtor II is a fire rated OSB protection product that was developed by BarrierTEK specifically for OSB to drastically lower the natural flame spread from 140+ to 15 or lower. This product bonds tightly to the manufactured wood substrate creating a uniform durable shield that will not chip or flake throughout the construction process and for the life of the building.
ProTEKtor II-D is a fire protection product that was developed specifically for dimensional lumber to lower the natural flame spread from 65+ to 25 or lower. This product soaks into the very surface of the wood substrate where it becomes part of the structure not affected by weather during the construction process and for the life of the building.
AtTEK is a robust fire protection product that was developed specifically for the protection of attic spaces in commercial and multi-family buildings in lieu of attic sprinkler systems which are vulnerable to freezing temperatures. The product works on both dimensional lumber and OSB to lower their respective flame spreads to zero.
