MEDITE FR CLEAR is often used in museums, schools, laboratories and public buildings.

MEDITE FR CLEAR is a panel product suitable for use as wall linings, partitions, ceiling tiles, display panels and cases, furniture and fixings within an environmentally sensitive area such as museums, laboratories, hospitals and public buildings.

MEDITE FR CLEAR has similar formaldehyde levels that occur naturally in raw timber. This ensures MEDITE FR CLEAR can be used in environmentally sensitive interior applications, where formaldehyde emissions need to be kept to the minimum. No wood-based panel can be fully free of formaldehyde due to the naturally occurring formaldehyde within the raw timber.

MEDITE FR CLEAR is manufactured to ensure performance properties are uniform through the cross section. As with all timber and wood-based panels processing can affect how the material will react in an environment. Best practice should be followed when processing. Euroclass B certification is only valid for the raw panel.

Yes. Any interior grade coating system can be used. If the panel is coated and used as a component in a construction this does not guarantee the construction will perform to Euroclass B. The overall construction must be fire tested as it will contain several different components. MEDITE can only guarantee the raw panel and not any other component used.

60 or 30 minute fire ratings are a measure of Fire Resistance of a system like a wall or door over a specific time, i.e. how long it takes for the fire to progress form one room to another. A system may consist of flame retardant materials like MEDITE FR CLEAR to help improve the overall fire resistance of a structure and delay the fire migrating from one room to another. MEDITE FR CLEAR is tested to EN13501-1 “Reaction to Fire Classification” as outlined in EN13986. If the panel is processed, coated and used as a component in a construction this does not guarantee the construction will perform to Euroclass B. The overall construction must be fire tested as it will contain several different components. MEDITE can only guarantee the raw panel and not any other component used.
