ProWood FR receives a Top 100 Product distinction from ProBuilder for 2022
Builders, architects, specifiers, building code officials can now quickly spec and approve the product
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., [September 6, 2022] - ProWood FR, a brand of UFP Retail Solutions, recently was name a Top 100 Product by Pro Builder Magazine for receiving UL Listing for its fire-retardant, pressure-treated wall assembly, ProWood FR UL V343 2-Hour Wall Assembly (UL 263 Listed).
"We are continuously engaged in developing and bringing innovative products to market that move the industry forward," said Ryan Kemp, executive vice president of ProWood. "As building codes continue to evolve so does our innovation platform at ProWood."
Available exclusively from ProWood, the code-compliant ProWood FR V343 wall assembly bears a Class A Flame Spread Index of 25 or less, the best possible rating awarded to fire-retardant building products. ProWood FR V343 is manufactured under the independent third-party inspection of Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL), the largest and oldest independent testing laboratory in the US.
The UL Listing for ProWood FR's V343 pressure-treated wall assembly gives builders and architects the peace of mind to spec the product in their construction applications. It also allows building code officials to quickly and confidently approve the product on job sites.
"Pressure treating infuses the fire retardant deep into the cells of the wood, not just at the surface," added Kemp. "Since it is in the wood cells, the fire retardant is not damaged during or after construction. With this UL Listing, builders, architects, and specifiers now have the knowledge they are getting a product that performs specifically for their end use."
