Nursing homes are subject to very strict fire safety regulations. Timber facade cladding may not seem the most obvious choice, but thanks to the fire-retardant solutions for timber and panels from Lemahieu Fire Protection® more and more architects are deciding to use timber.
Etau Architects used ThermoWood® pine from LDCwood for nursing home Couillet. It was treated with fire-retardant by Lemahieu Fire Protection® to achieve the required reaction to fire classification.
The combination of three different profiles creates a vertical interplay of lines on the facade.
Fire-retardant ThermoWood® pine from LDCwood:
always has FSC® or PEFC® certification
has a reaction to fire classification of B-s2,d0
