With correct design of Techlam’s tongue and groove Structural Laminated Flooring, a fire resistance rating (FRRmax) of up to 150 minutes can be achieved.
Techlam Laminated T&G Flooring Span Tables provide the engineered solutions specific for use and degree of allowable vibration.
Supplied in a Grade A Visual or Utility non-visual finish, the flooring is manufactured from random lengths of timber (Radiata Pine), which are finger jointed and glued together to form continuous laminations. Available in two widths (300mm or 240mm) and in thicknesses of 42 – 135mm, this product can be manufactured to any specified length.
The need to line ceilings with plasterboard to achieve required fire ratings is often eliminated, leaving a finished look of natural timber that adds warmth, style and character to any décor.
Fire resistance rating (FRRmax) for the floor systems is determined for the maximum allowable spans (Lmax) and cantilever length (Lc,max).
It is assumed that only the underside of the floor is exposed to fire and that the char rate of the timber is 0.65mm/min.
With correct design a (FRRmax) of up to 150 minutes can be achieved. Techlam Laminated T&G Flooring Span Tables provide the engineered solutions specific for use and degree of allowable vibration.
With fire resistance ratings like this, Techlam Structural Flooring is a perfect solution for mid floors, with the added benefit of reduction in subfloor framing. Couple this with rapid installation, and an all round cost-effective solution can be achieved.
