Hoover Treated Wood Products, Inc.

Hoover Treated Wood Products, Inc., in business since 1955, supplies a comprehensive portfolio of pressure-impregnated kiln-dried lumber and plywood products for fire retardant and preservative applications. Hoover has five company-owned treating facilities, conveniently located to service a 100-member stocking distributor network which thoroughly covers the USA and Canada. The rigorous quality control procedures employed by Hoover are constantly reviewed and inspected by Underwriters Laboratories and Timber Products Inspection’s follow-up service.

Pyro-Guard® and Exterior Fire-X® lumber and plywood are produced for interior and weather-exposed applications, respectively, and have a flame-spread rating of 25 or less, even after 30 minutes of test time. Both products are clearly labeled and carry the UL® mark. Pyro-Guard® and Exterior Fire-X® lumber and plywood are tested in accordance with procedures outlined in the International Building Code and NFPA 703. Pyro-Guard® is accepted under ESR 1791 as meeting the requirements of the International Building Code, National Building Code, Standard Building Code, and the Uniform Building Code.

Pyro-Guard® and Exterior Fire-X® are recognized for applications where noncombustible materials are required in buildings. Examples are nonbearing partitions, nonbearing exterior walls, roof assemblies, platforms, canopies, exterior architectural trim and veneers, exterior balconies, exterior-bearing walls in joisted-masonry and heavy timber construction, and increasingly for decks in wildfire prone areas.
