Century Plyboards launches Firewall technology to ensure safety in case of fire
Century Plyboards has introduced a pioneering solution for its customers by launching the use of Firewall Technology in manufacturing its Products. The technology will provide critical time to act and be safe in case of fire.
As per the regulatory filing, Firewall Technology is the outcome of arduous and indigenous research work done by the organization. The organization has decided to offer this benefit currently to its customers at no additional cost. Firewall technology involves the use of nano-engineered particles, which are embedded in the polymer matrix of plywood, giving it best-in-class firefighting properties. Ordinary plywood
once ignited rapidly gets destroyed, it acts as a medium to spread fire within minutes. It also generates a lot of smoke. The rapidly spreading fire ignites and destroys everything in its way, the smoke hinders rescue operations and may suffocate people to death.
Also, Firewall Technology is best prepared to fight against self-disintegration due to fire and to contain the spread of fire and smoke generation. This helps in rescue operations, allowing time for its consumers to save their own and loved ones’ lives or call for emergency help, fire engines, ambulances etc. Once the source of fire is removed it also acts to self-extinguish the fire.
Notably, CenturyPly has decided not to charge any additional price for this currently, keeping the delivery of customer satisfaction as the main purpose. The Firewall Technology will be available in its Architect and Club Prime range of plywood from April 2021 onwards.
