Louisiana High School - Commercial Roof Assembly using Blazeguard

When the architect was designing a roof to connect several historic buildings of a junior high school in Mandeville, LA - he carefully considered what type of material to use to meet the fire code requirements of a roof that children would be walking under every day. The material he specified - Blazeguard Fire-Rated Sheathing. Blazeguard is an environmentally friendly building material that is non-hazardous, non-toxic, and releases H2O (water) upon the heat of fire. Blazeguard has been tested extensively and has an International Code Council Report - ESR-1365 that summarizes the applications Blazeguard has been evaluated for.
