LP® FlameBlock™ used for External Walls in Hotels, Motels, Resorts

LP® FlameBlock™ Fire-Rated OSB Sheathing was one of a few products featured by LP® Building Products at the recent "Hotel Design Show & Expo" in Las Vegas. Barrier's very own National Sales Manager, Jim Dukart participated in the show to help address technical questions and promote the many uses of this product that Barrier manufactures through exclusive supply agreement/private label for LP®.

The primary use of FlameBlock™ exhibited at this show was as exterior sheathing for two-hour external walls in Type IIIA construction, a common construction type for multi-story wood frame hotel, motel and resort properties.

In particular, two-side-coated FlameBlock™ is used in UL wall assembly, U349, designed specifically for this type of construction. Using FlameBlock™ in this manner obviates the need for a double-layer of gypsum wall board on the outside face of the wall, saving builders considerable time and money in the construction process. A 400,000 square foot structure featuring this type of construction is currently being built on the U.S. East Coast -- keep an eye on our blog for further information.

Architects, designers or builders of hospitality properties (or other lighter commercial wood-frame structures) are also encouraged to visit both Barrier and LP® Building Products websites for information on how to save time and money using FlameBlock™.
