Fire-X® Fire Retardant Treatment

Worthington's proprietary Fire-X® formula is applied in-house via a vacuum and pressure impregnation process.

 

This provides wood-based products with greatly enhanced fire retardancy, consistently achieving a zero Spread Of Flame index under AS1530.3.

 

Curved Panels

Worthington Rail can manufacture single-axis curved panels in both composite and plywood substrates.

Whether it's to serve form or function, our panel curving capabilities open up your design possibilities.
