LP® FlameBlock™ Fire-Rated OSB Sheathing Demonstration on "You Tube"

LP® FlameBlock™ Fire-Rated OSB Sheathing's fire resistance was on dramatic display April 15, 2010 in Sacramento, CA, where Barrier and LP Building Products co-hosted a product demonstration for architects, builders, designers, and fire officials. The event took place at the Sacramento Fire Department Division of Training.

The demonstration features two similar structures -- one sheathed with standard raw OSB (oriented strand board and the other featuring FlameBlock™ as wall sheathing. Each was set afire with a fuel source both inside and directly in contact with an outside wall of the structure. Within seconds, the OSB-only (unprotected) structure is staring to spread flames, and by the three minute mark is engulfed in flames. Within seven to nine minutes, all sheathing has been burned through, all framing timbers have been charred and the structure has been destroyed.

The FlameBlock™ protected structure, on the other hand, remains standing and only show some charring in areas in direct contact with the fire source.
