Fire Rated MDF is manufactured in accordance with EN Euro class B and class C and intended for internal use in public areas such as hotel foyers, theatres and other institutional buildings where fire retardant materials are stipulated by Building Regulations. During manufacture a pink/light red dye is incorporated for identification purposes.

For all other purposes FR MDF should be considered to have similar properties to those of standard MDF, such as ease of machining and cutting.

Key Features
Meets EN Euro Class B and C fire retardant standards
Same mechanical and machining qualities as Standard MDF

MDF is manufactured from wood fibres, mixed with resin and waxes which are then hot pressed to the required thickness. These wood fibres are sourced from environmentally friendly forest thinnings, recycled wood/pallets, and sawdust. All our suppliers provide FSC and PEFC certification.

All dust can be harmful if inhaled or ingested, MDF dust is no exception. Correct PPE such as dust masks and goggles should be worn as a matter of routine. Workshop machines should be fitted with appropriate dust extraction equipment. If not in a workshop environment then MDF should be worked in a well ventilated area. The use of a respirator fitted with P2 filter units is highly recommended.

With veneer finish, FR-MDF drops to fire class C or lower.

Intended to be used wherever fire protection is the first priority (e.g interior finishes for public buildings, boat & yacht building, the automotive industry, exhibition stands, etc), the flame retardant panels are classified in accordance with BS EN 13501 Euroclasses B and C.

This is an internal product with non decorative surfaces.

To meet the European classifications, the rate of fire growth, total heat release, smoke production and burning droplets are measured by testing samples of the products to EN 13823 (The SBI test) and EN 11925-2 (The SFI test) and, for wood-based panels, classified as Euroclass B or C in accordance with BS EN13501-1. Euroclass B is higher technical class than Euroclass C and, therefore by definition, if material conforms to Euroclass B then it will exceed the requirements for Euroclass C.

Please check with your local building control that this product meets with current Class B regulations and is suitable for your project. Atlantic Timber cannot be responsible for misinterpretation leading to incorrect usage.

Instructions: How to Provide Cutting Instructions for Sheet Material

We can cut this product for you in our in-house workshop. If you would like us to do this please follow these instructions to make sure we have all of the relevant information to enable us to cut it correctly.

We need two dimensions, in millimetres, to enable us to cut your chosen material.

If the product has a grain please list the dimension in the direction of the grain first.
E.g. if you're making a wardrobe door 1800mm x 500mm and you want the grain to run vertically (the 1800mm way) you would write it as above, 1800mm x 500mm.
If you are making a drawer front 150mm x 397mm and you want the grain to run vertically (the 150mm way) you would write it 150mm x 397mm.

In some cases a sheet can be cut in more than one way to achieve the sizes you want. If you have an intended use for your off cut please tell us so we can cut the sheet in the way that yields the size of cut you would like.

For orders with large numbers of cut pieces we use computer software to calculate the most economical way to cut the sheet. We will not accept responsibility if this method doesn't yield what you were hoping for from your sheet once it has been cut.

If you are unsure about any of your cutting please contact us before placing your order.
