DRICON® Fire Retardant Lumber

Since the early 1950’s Shaw/Stewart has been a leader in the production—as a manufacturer—of fire-retardant treated lumber and plywood. Controlling the manufacturing process allows us to ensure uniform quality—and you to purchase directly from the manufacturer.

The chemical treatment, developed by Arch Wood Protection, is effective in reducing the spread of flames and smoke development caused by a fire. Dricon® FRTW is recognized by building codes as an alternative to other construction materials which are classified as noncombustible. Because of this, Dricon gives builders and architects additional design options for both residential and commercial projects.
