Fact Sheet No 1: Understanding Fire Protection Terms

The Wood Protection Association (WPA) gets asked many questions about the fire protection of wood used in construction. Among the most frequently asked questions is to ask if ‘reaction to fire’ properties are the same as ‘fire resistance’ properties. These terms do have very different definitions and for those not in the know they can get confused leading to misunderstandings.  To help clear up any potential for confusion WPA has published the Guidance Note WPA FR 1: Understanding fire protection terms.
