Chino Hills, CA.
TimberSIL glass wood used here to build a Class-A fire retardant patio cover deck with a great view. The hills of San Bernardino County have been hit repeatedly with wildfire storms over the last decade. Chino Hills, now listed as a W.U.I. (Wildland Urban Interface) area, Cal Fire’s determined high fire severity zones, has to abide by new building codes and fire restrictions that require Class-A or Ignition Resistant building materials used for outdoor applications, designed to save lives and homes.

TimberSIL glass wood meets fire restrictions put forth by Cal Fire. TimberSIL is listed in their W.U.I. Handbook under “Ignition Resistant” (Class-A fire retardant after weathering). TimberSIL glass wood is construction grade lumber impregnated with a non-toxic liquid glass formula that is solidified while inside the wood, protecting the wood fiber from rot and insects as well as fire.
