  • Tested & Proven

    To make the plywood resistant to fire, the sheets are treated with Fire Retardant chemicals under Vacuum Pressure Impregnation. This ensures its resistances to immediate ignition and flame penetration. All these attributes make DURO FIRESHIELD the perfect choice for your interiors.
