Blazeguard added to California Wildfire Zone Products List

Barrier is proud to announce that Blazeguard Fire-Rated Sheathing has been added to the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) Products List maintained by the California Office of the State Fire Marshal.

Blazeguard is listed in three different sections of the WUI list; Exterior Wall Siding and Sheathing, Under Eave, and Ignition-Resistant Materials. It is the only material listed under all three categories and one of very few products that have qualified under either the "Under Eave" or "Ignition Resistant Materials" categories.

For a full listing of WUI Products, the text of Chapter 7A Materials and Construction Methods for Exterior Wildfire Exposure [SFM] of the 2007 California Building Code and further information about Wildland Hazards and Wildlife Urban Interface regulations, click here.

Barrier has already received numerous inquiries about using Blazeguard in California WUI applications and we are optimistic this will lead to great sales opportunities.
