The Pagoda, Peasholm Park, Scarborough
During the construction phase in 2006, the Pagoda suffered an arson attack:
The spread of the fire was limited to 75% of the lower deck flooring and supporting joists.
Due to the DRICON fire retardant treatment, the fire self-extinguished and prevented the entire project being razed to the ground, with constuction costs in excess of £200,000.
Despite the wanton act of vandalism, the project continued to completion with minimal cost outlay.
This real-life fire test demonstrates the effectiveness of the treatment, negating the required attendance of the fire services.
Dricn treated Spruce deckboards.
