Are there any “greener” fire retardant coatings for solid wood?

Erika Hanson | Posted in Green Products and Materials on

I’m using solid wood as an interior surfacing material. I’m looking for a “best in class” fire retardant coating for situations that require a Class A or Class B fire rating. Are there any products considered to be less hazardous for the person applying them as well as better for the environment?

    I don't know if you were thinking to treat wood before you set up the shell or after, but there is a product/co who's providing fire and mold resistance which kind of green also. If you email me I can give you they name.
