UL Test Results in GreenGuard Certification for Pyro-Guard®

Certification allows Pyro-Guard users to breathe easier!

PYRO-GUARD® treatment has earned UL’s GREENGUARD Certification. Recognized and referenced by over 400 codes, rating systems, and procurement policies worldwide, GREENGUARD Certification requires that products meet some of the world's most rigorous and comprehensive limits for low emissions of volatile organic compounds into indoor environments. 

Using dynamic environmental chamber testing, PYRO-GUARD® was tested for volatile organic compounds (VOCs), including formaldehyde, and over 300 other VOCs with health-based limits. GREENGUARD-Certified PYRO-GUARD® aids in the creation of healthier indoor environments because it is now shown to release fewer pollutants that can contribute to health issues including asthma and other respiratory issues. 

GREENGUARD Certification is just one of Hoover’s many ways of leading the industry. Recently, UL recently tested and promulgated a listing for an exterior wall system (EWS) containing pressure-impregnated fire-retardant-treated wood (FRTW), which makes the plan approval process for Type I, II, and III construction quicker and easier for architects. The new NFPA 285 listing, UL System No. EWS0045, is the first and only FRTW exterior wall system to be tested by UL for the vertical and lateral flame propagation requirements of the International Building Code (IBC). The system requires the use of Hoover’s PYRO-GUARD® fire-retardant-treated lumber and plywood.
