attic timbers

Flame Safe's WOOD SAFE (formally J.D.P. 108) is a is an aqueous based resin that is colorless, odorless, non-toxic, and environmentally friendly fire retardant for interior use - UL fire rated f.s. 35; s.g. 95 - flat finish, paintable, stainable. Long term fire retardant protection, WOOD SAFE, can be applied to any type of wood such as yellow pine, douglas fir, SPF, cedar, oak, birch, walnut, and redwood. WOOD SAFE is applied in 3 coats (330-390 sq.ft. /coat) allowing drying time between coats, with the final coverage rate of 110-130 square feet to the gallon. WOOD SAFE creates a barrier to fire. The chemical reaction, when exposed to flame , creates an intumescing action causing the surface to bubble up and thereby creating barrier between the fire and treated material. Structures under construction can be effectively made fire safe. As soon as the surface is enclosed, spray all exposed interior surfaces such as studs, trusses, subfloor, joist and interior outside walls.

ASTM-E-108 Class B

shingle roof logo

Flame Safe SHINGLE SAFE™ has been tested by Western Fire Center and is classified as a Class B fire retardant coating and by Southwest Research Institute and classified as a Class C fire retardant coating that meets the ASTM-E-108 [Burning Brand, Flying Brand, Spread of Flame and Intermittent Flame Exposure] classification for wood shingle roofs. The coverage rate for SHINGLE SAFE™ fire retardant is 120 -140 sq. ft. to the gallon. Apply by spray, beginning at the ridge and working down and across the roof surface. For optimum results, to inhibit or drastically reduce the wind tunnel or blow torch effect of fire in the attic area, fire retard the underside of the roof in the attic, as well as other substrates, including blown cellulose insulation with SHINGLE SAFE™.

FABRIC SAFE is a fire retardant spray on coating for natural fabrics and most synthetic and synthetic blends. FABRIC SAFE can significantly reduce the hazard of fire because of its ability to double or triple the flashpoint ofr most materials. It forms a barrier which inhibits ignition of the fire treated material and restricts the char to the immediate area exposed to flame. FABRIC SAFE is a water based, clear, non-toxic, and odorless. The coverage rate of FABRIC SAFE is 300-500 square feet per gallon depending on the type and weight of the material being fire retardant treated. In most instance FABRIC SAFE is applied with a spray applicator. A sponge can be an effective method of applying FABRIC SAFE fire retardant on wallpaper and wall coverings. All textiles/fabrics lose some of their fire retardant qualities after deep cleaning, therefor re-treatment with FABRIC SAFE is advised to achieve maximum results. Pile or high tufted carpet in particular is suitable for FABRIC SAFE fire retardant treatment after deep cleaning.

FABRIC SAFE for canvas tarps, awnings, tents, burlap, and hemp ropes can be used for both exterior and interior applications. FABRIC SAFE fire retardant for canvas can be applied by spray coating, brush or dipping. FABRIC SAFE for canvas is warranted for 5 years or 200 inches of rain whichever comes first.
This FABRIC SAFE fire retardant can be used on leather. Treat the leather from the back side only

PAPER SAFE is a water-based, clear, odorless, non-toxic, and environmentally friendly fire retardant. Applied at a rate of 300 to 500 square feet to the gallon PAPER SAFE is an excellent fire protection for holiday/seasonal paper decorations . Before applying PAPER SAFE check for color fastness.
PAPER SAFE, formulated and developed specifically for the corrugated board, cardboard box and packaging industry is a fire retardant coating and penetrant. PAPER SAFE exceeds the United States Navy's fire retardant standard ASTM-E-162 (flame spread), as well as standard ASTM-E-662 (smoke generation). PAPER SAFE is an aqueous based resin that is colorless, odorless, non-toxic, and adds no appreciable weight. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) - 30 Standard became effective September 1, 1991, which requires that combustible liquids in plastic containers be packaged in some sort of noncombustible shipping container. NFPA-30 is only concerned with the ability of the full assembly to pass the fire requirements of the U.L. Procedure Subject 2019. Flame Safe's PAPER SAFE as a component part will assist in the passing of the "Final Assembly Package Procedure".

Cal. Admin. Code, Title 19, Public Safety, Art.3, Sec. 1264.3, "Christmas Trees"

dry grass and brush

TREE SAFE is a fire retardant spray on coating primarily used for indoor Christmas trees. In addition, TREE SAFE acts as a wood preservative keeping the needles of the tree greener for a longer period of time. One quart covers up to an 8' tree. With a mist sprayer, start at the top of the tree and spray all branches and foliage. After spraying pour the remainder of the TREE SAFE into the stand reservoir mixed with water. Allow the tree to dry indoors or in a covered area.

TREE SAFE is an excellent fire protection on dry grass and brush. It’s application can slow or stop the advance of the flame front caused by winds in areas of exceptionally low humidity.

As a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) partner, Flame Safe offers a substantial discount to homeowners and business in high risk fire areas.

Fire Buster Logo
Flame Safe also manufactures fire retardant fabric products, such as it's trademarked FIREBUSTER™. The FIREBUSTER™ has been treated with a fire retardant chemical and shown in tests not to burn at temperatures exceeding 2000 degrees Fahrenheit. Tests conducted by Southwest Research Institute shows that the FIREBUSTER™ surpasses all requirements of the test procedure Cal 1237.1 by as much as 700%. Putting a FIREBUSTER™ over a fire will cut off the flow of oxygen thereby extinguishing the fire. It will eliminate the heavy smoke, while filtering the remainder.

"Fire causes an average of one civilian death every 175 minutes. Every 23 seconds, a fire department responds to a fire somewhere in the United States."

The 2011 Texas wildfire activity brought to light the fact that wildfires are not just a west coast issue. Pre-fire prevention can and does work to reduce losses. There were significant losses in the Texas wildfires, but there was also many examples of saves from people who took precautions for their own homes (NFPA Journal March/April 2012 p.76)

The best fire insurance is fire prevention.
