Added 09.24.19

Providing yet another innovative breakthrough, industry leader James Latham now offers a fully certified fire-retardant, flexible plywood, giving interior design professionals a quick and easy solution for creating high-impact curves, waves and cylindrical shapes in their fit-out projects.


Ideal for reception desks, columns, panelling, arches and counters, it is already proving extremely popular in the exhibition, shopfitting, hospitality and commercial sectors where a Euro Class B fire-rated material is part of the specification.


Stuart Devoil James Latham’s Group Head of Marketing explained, “Our new FR Flexi-Ply has already been a big hit with customers. In fact, the first load sold out before we could even advertise it! As well as being fully tested and third party certified with a Class B EN13501 fire rating, it offers designers exceptional flexibility and performance as it can easily be bent to all kinds of intricate shapes and radii, delivering a highly cost-effective and time saving solution.


“As well as the obvious risk to safety of occupants, fire damage in buildings can be devastating and as a result, fire-retardant products are increasingly being specified to help reduce this impact.  In particular, when it comes to high-footfall public areas such as retail premises, exhibition centres, concert venues, stadia, cinemas, theatres, hotels etc as well as schools, offices and hospitals, fire retardant materials are essential.”


Available in thicknesses from 3 – 16mm, and sheet sizes up to 1220 x 2500mm, FR Flexi-ply can provide an excellent solution to complex design challenges, combining design flexibility, great aesthetics and performance you can trust.
