MEDITE SMARTPLY has been shortlisted in the Project of the Year Award (WPA)

October 2020

MEDITE SMARTPLY has been shortlisted in the Project of the Year category at the annual Wood Protection Association (WPA) Awards.

The recent acoustic panel fit-out project at the Stephen Perse Foundation School in Cambridge, UK has been nominated for its use of MEDITE PREMIER FR MDF to create acoustic panels for the new, state-of-the-art sports hall. Approximately 530 MEDITE PREMIER FR panels were installed and were especially chosen for fire performance, acoustic performance, and sustainability.

“We are delighted to be nominated in the Project of the Year category at this year’s awards,” says Richard Allen, Sales Director at MEDITE SMARTPLY.

“MEDITE PREMIER FR Euroclass B & C are developed specifically for use where a Euroclass B or a Euroclass C flame retardant board is required under building regulations. As this project was located at a school, fire safety is vitally important. We are extremely proud to see what has been achieved with our products and we look forward to contributing to ever more fantastic projects in the future.”

Now in its sixth year, the WPA Awards is a popular event, celebrating the amazing achievements in wood protection technology and how it is a vital part of the timber industry.

The WPA is a not-for-profit trade association that looks to champion the use of timber as a building material by acting as a technical and advisory body to construction professionals, and by promoting and developing the technology that enhances the performance and value of sustainable softwood products.

The event was originally scheduled for April earlier this year but was pushed back as a result of the pandemic.

The winners will be announced live via a virtual ceremony taking place on Thursday 15th October 2020 at 1pm. You can register to watch this here: www.thewpa.org.uk/wpa-2020-awards-conference

Introducing SMARTPLY MAX FR B

October 2020

Introducing SMARTPLY MAX FR B

MEDITE SMARTPLY has now launched SMARTPLY MAX FR B, the brand new Euroclass B OSB3, a market innovation bringing increased safety and reliability to an industry contingent on safety and predictability.
SMARTPLY MAX FR B is the first Euroclass B board—the maximum Euroclass rating for a timber panel—manufactured in the UK and Ireland to feature wood flakes treated with flame retardant solution before pressing. This ensures its flame retardance is integral and maintains its structural integrity, unlike many post-treated alternatives, making it the safer choice for use within timber frame construction, or projects that will require a large amount of timber product.
“We are extremely excited to introduce SMARTPLY MAX FR B to the marketplace, expanding our already extensive SMARTPLY OSB range,” comments Richard Allen, Sales Director at MEDITE SMARTPLY.
“In SMARTPLY MAX FR B, customers can expect all the fantastic benefits of a SMARTPLY OSB board, with the addition of ZeroIgnition® solution, a water based and environmentally friendly flame retardant which is added during panel production.
“This is a solution that has potential in a huge range of applications and industries, encompassing many modern methods of construction such as offsite and timber frame construction, light gauge steel and modular construction systems, as well as temporary structures.
“Whatever the sector, all customers can rest assured that this board’s flame retardance will hold to Euroclass B standard, even when cut to size, which makes it different to other FR boards out there.”
Manufactured using advanced resin technology that results in a high performance, no added formaldehyde panel, SMARTPLY MAX FR B can help specifying architects, contractors and fabricators contribute to the creation of safer, healthier environments.
This includes not only the built environments actively created but the natural environments left behind: SMARTPLY MAX FR B is sustainably produced using timber from sustainably managed Irish forests.
“At MEDITE SMARTPLY, we want to support a safer, wider future for timber buildings, that will enable the wider construction industry to work more sustainably and more efficiently, truly building for the future. This has been one of our main motivations in developing SMARTPLY MAX FR B.”
SMARTPLY MAX FR B also complies with the performance requirements in the Structural Timber Association’s (or the STA’s) FR BUILD “Design guide to separating distances during construction” for timber frame buildings above 600m² total floor area. We refer to this product as SMARTPLY MAX FR/FR BUILD within our range.
SMARTPLY MAX FR/FR BUILD can be used in a timber frame building when mitigation measures are required due to the distance from neighbouring buildings. There are wall and floor systems outlined within the guide which give points towards the overall building, this satisfies any mitigation that may be required. Please refer to the STA guide for more information.
Finally, SMARTPLY MAX FR B meets with the requirements of European Standards EN 300 and EN 13986, while also complying with the European reaction to fire class B-s2,d0 and Bfl-s1. Boards can be manufactured in largescale formats of up to 2.8m wide by 7.5m long, making it ideal for offsite manufacturing, alongside traditional building.
