Elevate Safety and Style: Discover the Power of Fire Rated MDF for Your Interior Spaces

Elevate Safety and Style: Discover the Power of Fire Rated MDF for Your Interior Spaces

Short Description:

ROCPLEX-R MDF fire-rated boards are designed to meet stringent fire regulations, making them an ideal choice for applications in public spaces where fire safety is crucial. These non-load-bearing boards possess enhanced fire retardant properties and are manufactured in compliance with European standard EN 622-5, which classifies them as boards suitable for general use in dry conditions.

MDF FR boards have been gaining popularity due to their improved fire resistance and their ability to prevent fire spread and the formation of burning droplets. These boards meet strict requirements, including the classification of B-s2 according to EN 13501-1, which assesses their reaction to fire.

As a standard feature, ROCPLEX-R MDF fire-rated boards are produced with a red-colored fiber, providing easy identification and distinguishing them from other types of boards.


Product Detail


Fire Retardant MDF is appropriate for utilization in indoor, low-moisture environments for non-load-bearing purposes. It is particularly well-suited for tasks like cladding walls, creating divisions, crafting display boards, and similar applications. Fire Rated MDF, often referred to as Fire Retardant MDF, is a specially engineered variant of the traditional MDF that incorporates fire-resistant properties. MDF itself is a composite wood product formed by breaking down wood fibers, combining them with resin, and applying heat and pressure to create a dense, smooth panel. However, standard MDF is susceptible to combustion, making it less than ideal for applications where fire safety is a priority.

  • Wall Linings and Partitions: Fire Rated MDF serves as an excellent choice for creating wall linings and partitions in commercial spaces, residential buildings, and public facilities. Its fire-resistant properties contribute to compartmentalizing areas and preventing the rapid spread of flames.
  • Display Panels and Signage: In settings where display panels and signage are integral components, such as retail stores, museums, and exhibitions, Fire Rated MDF offers both visual appeal and fire safety. It allows designers to maintain their creative vision while prioritizing the protection of occupants.
  • Furniture and Cabinetry: Fire Rated MDF can be used in crafting furniture and cabinetry, ensuring that even these functional elements contribute to overall fire safety. This is particularly valuable in spaces where people spend significant amounts of time, such as offices, educational institutions, and healthcare facilities.
  • Ceiling Panels: Ceilings are often overlooked when considering fire safety measures. Fire Rated MDF ceiling panels can help contain fire incidents and contribute to safer evacuation routes.

Balancing Safety and Design:

One of the remarkable aspects of Fire Rated MDF is its ability to seamlessly blend fire safety with design aesthetics. Manufacturers offer a variety of finishes, including veneers, laminates, and paint, allowing designers and architects to maintain the desired visual impact while ensuring the safety of occupants.

Regulatory Standards:

It’s important to note that Fire Rated MDF must meet stringent industry standards and regulations to ensure its effectiveness in fire protection. These standards vary by region, but they typically involve rigorous testing for flame spread, smoke development, and ignition resistance.

ROCPLEX – R Fire Rated MDF For Safety

Safety is of utmost importance when working with MDF (Medium-Density Fibreboard) as all dust particles, including MDF dust, can be harmful if inhaled or ingested. It is crucial to take appropriate precautions and wear the correct Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) as a standard practice. Dust masks and goggles should be worn to protect against inhalation and eye irritation. In workshop environments, machines should be equipped with suitable dust extraction equipment to minimize dust exposure. If working outside of a workshop, it is essential to work in a well-ventilated area.

To ensure maximum protection, it is highly recommended to use a respirator fitted with P2 filter units. This will provide an additional layer of respiratory protection when working with MDF.

Please note that due to material availability and mill capability, ROCPLEX products may vary slightly in specifications in different regions. We recommend contacting your local representative to confirm the specific product offerings available in your area.
