Matilda Fireply®

Matilda Fireply® is a lightweight, fire-retardant plywood ideal for interior cladding use in commercial & residential buildings.

Matilda Fireply® is a plywood building material suitable for most sections of Class 2-9 buildings as defined in the Building Code of Australia (BCA). In its raw form, Matilda Fireply® is certified in accordance with the relevant Australian Standards to be suitable as an interior wall and ceiling lining for stringent fire hazard requirements (Fire Hazard Group Number 2). Most fire retardant Australian plywood is treated post-production, limiting its fire resistance. In contrast, Matilda Fireply® is treated with the veneer impregnation method prior to plywood production making the whole product fire retardant, not just the exterior.

Matilda Fireply® is designed for use in commercial interiors and other applications where improved resistance to fire is required. It is lightweight, easy-to-machine and offers dimensional stability. It is ready to use in building projects upon delivery, no other fire treating required.

Matilda Fireply® is a superior alternative to fire-retardant (FR) MDF and other non-wood building materials, which have traditionally been used when the high levels of fire resistance is required. Compared to FR MDF, Matilda Fireply® is not only lighter, but more impact resistant and stronger.

It also has a high quality plywood edge detail should this be desirable for project aesthetics. Matilda Fireply® may also be an attractive alternative for use under veneer in place of non-FR plywood due to its additional safety benefits.
