Abstract
Wood belongs to the natural bio-composites of plant origin containing cellulose, hemicelluloses, lignin and other compounds. When exposed to fire or any other high intensity heat sources, wood, being a natural polymer, is subject to thermal decomposition (pyrolysis) and combustion depending on the environmental conditions. Combustion accompanied by heat release and chemiluminescence occurs when wood is in direct contact with air and with a physical, chemical or microbiological stimulus associated with heat release. There are increasing concerns about the fire performance of engineered wood products (EWP) and wood composite products such as oriented strand board (OSB), particleboard (PB), medium density fiberboard (MDF) and high density fiberboard (HDF) panels. Wood composite panels, like structural wood products, should have certain fire retardant properties with respect to both safety and the environment. It is believed that this issue will get more attention in the near future as environmental regulations are developed and the requirements of end-users change. A Canadian Forest Service (CFS) project in the Composites Program, entitled “Development of Fire Retardant Composite Panels (Project No. 5764),” was initiated in 2007. The aim of the project is to develop fire retardant OSB panel and low-density fiberboard (FB) through the modification of wood furnish and/or adhesives using fire retardants and nano materials, and to improve the fire performance of panel surface coatings by using fire retardant coatings and paints. As part of the project deliverables, a series of literature reviews on different aspects of fire performance for wood and composite wood products has been conducted. So far, two literature review reports have been issued: Part I. Fire-Performance Requirements for Composite Wood Products and Standard Fire Tests for Demonstrating Compliance with those Requirements - Literature Review and Part II. Proprietary Fire Retardant Treated Wood and Composite Wood Products - Literature Review. In this current report (Part III), the literature review was focused on describing a number of small-scale fire tests that can be used for research and development purposes as alternatives to the standard fire tests referenced in building codes in Canada and the United States. The literature review was conducted by Mr. Leslie R. Richardson, retired senior research scientist and Group Leader of Building Systems – Fire Program of FPInnovations – Forintek Division. It is believed that this literature review will be an invaluable guide for acquiring information on fire performance requirements and standard fire test methods for wood and composite wood products. The full literature review is available in Appendix.

The literature review was conducted by Mr. Leslie R. Richardson, retired senior research scientist and Group Leader of Building Systems – Fire Program of FPInnovations - Forintek Division.

Abstract
Ce projet avait pour objectif général de recenser des produits de type panneau massif offrant l’opportunité d’accroître l’utilisation de bois feuillus de faible qualité. Les proportions de sciages de feuillus de bas grade de qualité sont importantes. À l’hiver 2008, la répartition des classes de qualité de sciages de bois d’érable à sucre et de bouleau jaune en provenance des CAAF de la province de Québec démontraient des proportions d’environ 40 % de sciages de grade # 3B Com ou moins. Après avoir pris connaissance de la ressource en bois feuillus de bas grade, le protocole du projet a consisté en la recherche de panneaux massifs offrant une opportunité d’utilisation de cette ressource pour leur fabrication. Ces panneaux pouvaient être pour usage structural ou pour produits d’apparence. Au niveau des produits d’apparence, peu de panneaux sont fabriqués au Québec à partir de bois feuillus de bas grade de qualité. Les recherches menées ont permis d’identifier quelques manufacturiers québécois fabriquant des panneaux de type lamellé-collé et plaqué à partir de sciages feuillus de bas grade de qualité. Des bandes de feuillus de bas grade sont aussi utilisées comme substrats de lames de plancher d’ingénierie. Toutefois, en fonction des témoignages recueillis, le coût de fabrication de tels produits à partir d’une ressource de bas grade demeure un enjeu important. En effet, suite à quelques tentatives, certains manufacturiers de panneaux pour produits d’apparence et de meubles préfèrent l’utilisation de bois feuillus de grade supérieur plutôt que de grade inférieur, les coûts de main d’œuvre dans ce dernier cas s’avérant trop élevés. Au niveau structural, il s’avère très difficile d’envisager la production de panneaux massifs compétitifs au panneau OSB. Par contre, une ouverture serait à envisager au niveau du coffrage. Des prototypes de modèle trois plis fabriqués en laboratoire à partir de bois feuillus de bas grade furent testés comparativement au panneau actuel de type contre-plaqué 11 plis. Les prototypes ont révélé un niveau de performance intéressant. Toutefois, un coût de fabrication compétitif à l’échelle industrielle des prototypes développés demeure encore ici un enjeu important. Finalement, tant au niveau apparence que structural, plusieurs types de panneaux massifs ont été développés sur le continent européen. Bien que ces produits n’utilisent pas une ressource en feuillus de bas grade, leurs diverses conceptions s’avèrent intéressantes afin de considérer le développement et la fabrication future de tels produits à partir de cette ressource.

Abstract
Various designs of lightweight panels have been on the market for decades, but have only recently been used to manufacture household furnishings. These panels are mainly wood-based and cardboard-based honeycomb panels developed in Europe, and in Germany in particular. The manufacturing cost of these panels are competitive with those of panels manufactured with traditional materials and their mechanical properties are very interesting. However their use requires specially designed machining and joining systems. Many equipment and hardware manufacturers have developed complete systems and solutions for their use. Professor Martin Stosch is one of the leading experts in the field of lightweight household products manufacturing. He has written a series of articles on this subject and a summary of his work was published in 2006 by the German periodical BM. This document is an update on the state of lightweight construction for household products. Les panneaux légers de différentes conceptions sont sur le marché depuis des décennies, mais leur entrée dans le domaine de produits d’habitation est récente. Ce sont principalement des panneaux alvéolés à base de bois et de carton dont le développement a été poussé en Europe, particulièrement en Allemagne. Ces panneaux ont un coût de fabrication compétitif en comparaison aux matériaux traditionnels et offrent des propriétés mécaniques fort intéressantes. L’utilisation de ces panneaux nécessite des systèmes d’usinage et d’assemblage adaptés. De nombreux fabricants d’équipements et de quincaillerie ont innové et proposent aujourd’hui des solutions complètes. Le professeur Martin Stosch est parmi les experts reconnus mondialement en matière de construction légère de produits d’habitation. Il a rédigé une série d’articles à ce sujet et un résumé de ses travaux a été publié en 2006 par la revue allemande BM. Le présent document est une mise à jour de l’état de développement de systèmes de construction légers pour les produits d’habitation.
