Fire test on a wood structure

Few weeks ago, Les Constructions FGP erected aCLT staircase for a 3 floors condo unit at the National Fire Laboratory inMississippi Mills. The goal: to convince the local building authority of the provinceof Quebec, the stability of the CLT structure during a fire. These test were completedto provide tangible results for the future construction of the 13-stories towercondos in Pointe-aux-Lièvres.

After two hours, the integrity of the structure waspreserved and the smoke had not spread to the other room. A success for thewood industry!
