London Underground Approved Plywood
TFL Approved Plywood
We are suppliers of plywood panels with a range of flame retardant treatments and specs.
Burnblock: a non invasive pre-manufacture treatment. Veneers are treated before plywood is pressed and produced.
Osmose: a vacuum impregnation treatment (with or without kiln drying)

Specialised Panel Products Ltd. is an approved supplier to Transport for London (Product Register 2061)
The products we provide meet all of their required standards (Product Registration Certificate 1327).
Treated panels can also be supplied to a London Underground Approved Specification.

Call to discuss any panels for Transport for London and the London Underground. We can help complete the required paperwork and provide the correct certificates.

Burnblock FR Plywood
Burnblock is a non-toxic, water-based product that effectively blocks the supply of oxygen in the fire-threatened material. In this way Burnblock halts the burning process, just as it can counteract the ignition of treated plywood and timber. Burnblock-treated plywood is approved to the highest classification according to the Euroclass system for building products, making it the perfect solution for most building projects.

Burnblock-treated materials can be used for exterior cladding, wood constructions in multi-store buildings, fitting solutions, interior wall and floor constructions.

Benefits of Burnblock
  • No ingredient of Burnblock is on the REACH candidate list of concern / high concern / very high concern
  • 100% Organic
  • Non-harmful
Pre-manufacture treatment: wood plies are treated before being dried, bonded and pressed into plywood. Not a surface coating or post manufacture impregnantion treatment.
  • Flat and stable panel - ideal for laminating
  • CE Mark rating is unaffected
  • Reduced surface salt residue
  • Can be sanded & cut without affecting the retardancy

Our flame retardant boards are suitable for use in the construction industry. The fire performance required for all materials
used in buildings (which includes timber, plywood and wood based panels) is stated in Document B of the UK Building regulations.

Walls and ceilings require class 1 surface spread of flame in accordance with BS476: Part 7 or Euroclass C in accordance with
BS EN 13501-1:2002. Higher risk areas such as escape routes and staircases require class 0 surface spread of flame in accordance
with BS476: parts 6 & 7 or Euroclass B in accordance with BSEN13501-1: 2002.

Under the Construction Products Directive, there is a desire for European harmonisation of standards for fire retardant treatment
of timber. These are known as Euroclass B and Euroclass C.  In order to meet Euroclass B or Euroclass C specifications, timber
or plywood is tested to EN ISO 11925 (ignitability test) and BS EN 13823: 2002 (SBI or Single Burning Item Test). The SBI test
records parameters relating to the rate of fire growth, lateral flame spread and total heat release.  

Euroclass classifications are in accordance with BS EN 13501-1 (Fire classification of construction products and building elements)
The thresholds for compliance are higher for Euro class B than for Euro class C. Therefore if products conform to a Euro class B
they will also conform to a Euro class C, by definition.

In England and Wales, the fire requirements for buildings are dealt with by approved document part B to the Building regulations –
Class 0 and Class 1.  Euroclass B transposes to Class 0 and Euroclass C transposes to Class 1.
