FSC Wood Available for Blazeguard

Ainsworth now has a plant in Minnesota that produces FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified substrate panels with the necessary "COC" Chain of Custody documentation required for LEED projects. The FSC certifies that the mills manufacturing wood panels are using sustainable forestry practices to provide forest management worldwide.

In the past, Barrier has had inquiries about the ability to provide Blazeguard on FSC certified wood. With the continual movement towards protecting our environment and "Green" building practices, we anticipate those inquiries to continue to rise. We are pleased that Ainsworth has taken the step to make the availability of FSC certified panels even eaiser for us right here in Minnesota.Fire-rated sheathing, town homes, multi-family construction, housing market, small cap, otcbb, ibtgf, barrier, blazeguard, mycoguard, fire-rated paint, intumescent paint, mold, mildew, fire-retardant plywood, frt, sips, structurally insulative panels, fire-rated wall assemblies, commercial modular, modular home construction, green building products, LEED,
