Fire Rated Studs

Studs are important structural components of a home or building, it is important to make sure that studs are protected against fire damage so as to maintain structural integrity in the event of a fire. Studs are vertical allowing flames to quickly spread upwards if not fire rated. Fire rated studs and plates protect against fire spread plus resist damage by decay and insects.

Pyro-Guard® studs are available in a variety of sizes and in pine (SYP) or spruce (SPF).

Pyro-Guard® products can be used in any way that untreated lumber is used and are workable with common woodworking tools. Pyro-Guard® products burn more slowly than untreated wood, giving occupants more time to safely evacuate and minimizing fire damage.
