Fire Rated Wood Look Cladding

Co-extruded composite cladding with a Class B fire rating

Introducing Dura Cladding Resist: The UK’s first co-extruded composite timber cladding with Class B fire rating. Dura Cladding Resist is engineered to resist the ignition of fire and is tested to BS EN 13501 Class B s2 d0 to satisfy current and future fire legislation.

Dura Cladding Resist Fire Rated (FR) is our premium cladding plank choice if you require a high specification or if your budget allows. It features our most beautiful surface ever and is designed to achieve the most natural wood look on the market. The composite timber cladding is produced via a co-extrusion process where a 360° outer armour is used to protect the core from the elements for maximum fade and stain resistance.

Not only does Dura Cladding Resist’s FSC® 100% chain of custody certification mean that any wood content in our products comes from well-managed forests, but up to 78% of the materials used are recycled hardwood and plastic too.

This means that by choosing us, customers are helping to conserve the earth’s resources, whilst also diverting plastic waste from being sent to landfill.

Dura Cladding Resist (FR) Colours

Our Dura Cladding Resist planks are available in six great wood-look colours. Free samples are available on request so you can appreciate the stunning reversible surface finish for yourself. To order your sample click here and type “Resist Cladding” into the Additional Comments box.

Please note that colours shown are representative only; actual colours may vary slightly. Whilst Dura Cladding Resist is designed to resist fading, you should expect a minimal amount of initial colour lightening as the product weathers after install, which typically occurs in the first 3 months.

Our manufacturing process results in a high level of colour consistency although some variation in colour may be apparent across boards from different production batches.

Understanding Fire Safety Standards

Fire Resistant Composite Cladding – Choose Dura Cladding Resist (FR) with Confidence

Our new Dura Cladding Resist product range is manufactured from a unique combination of recycled wood and plastic and can be combined with aluminium trims and battening to create an industry-leading ‘best-in-class’ solution when it comes to fire performance of low-rise building cladding.

The fire resistance of a material is its ability to resist the effects of fire for a defined period of time and this is usually measured by submitting the material to a fire test as defined in an internationally recognised standard.

The European classification (Euro Class) system for fire resistance/reaction to fire was approved in the year 2001 with the EN 13501 series of standards which are the EU common standard for assessing the performance of building materials in the event of a fire.

The Euro Class system compares ignitability, flame spread, heat release, smoke production and the propensity for producing flaming droplets or particles. The standard includes seven classification levels, from A1 to F, with A1 representing the highest level of performance and F representing the lowest level.
