Greenewall 1-hour Torch Test
Greenewall can provide a fire-resistant barrier around your property. In grass, brush or chaparral fires, leafy material piled up against the outer surface of a fence can ignite a horizontal fire ladder which can reach the primary building. Greenewall inhibits this type of ignition. This test shows the minimal effect produced on a finish-ready panel of a torch flame located 3” from the panel surface over a 1- hour period. As demonstrated at the end of the hour, no flame has penetrated or ignited the wall panel. The common customer finish choices for greenewall are stucco, brick or stone facing, most commercial versions of which are fireproof or highly fire resistant.
Greenewall system is composed of 3 elements: steel posts, SIP-type panels hardened with fireproof mineral-composition faces, and fire-resistant architectural foam trim. The components are locked together so only fire-resistant surfaces are exposed. PANELS (shown in video) are composed of an EPS core faced with magnesium oxide mineral board ¼” thick. There are no flammable or digestible ingredients in the facing board. TRIM is standard architectural grade EPS with a bonded Fiberglas and concrete outer Layer. EPS will melt, but in greenewall is always protected by fire-resistant outer layers.
