FAQ

What is Hoover Pyro-Guard?

This is Hoover’s interior fire-treated product. It is intended to be installed in a dry or weather-protected environment.

What is Exterior Fire-X?

This is Hoover’s exterior fire-treated product. It can be installed in environments that will be exposed to the elements, without sacrificing the fire-treatment characteristics.

How does Fire treated lumber work?

Fire retardant lumber is pressure treated with a special chemical that helps to slow the burn rate of the lumber. Eventually the wood will completely burn without fire suppression, but it will take longer than untreated lumber.

I need a supplier that is FSC Certified.

Well you are in the right place! GE Frisco has a multitude of certifications, including the FSC Certification. Learn more about our certifications.

Is fire treated lumber also treated with the normal pressure treatment?

Fire-treatment is done with the same process as pressure-treated wood. The chemicals that the lumber has been treated with different and serves a different purpose. Exterior Fire-X is not a substitute for pressure treated wood, but does provide some limited protections against rot and decay while maintaining the flame spread requirements that specs call for.
