For years wildfires have been destroying property and taking lives throughout the western states. The major occurrences happen where urban areas meet wilderness areas. These areas are known as “wildland-urban interface” areas or “WUI”. California and the surrounding states have been working with manufactures for years to come up with building materials that are more flame resistant or flame retardant. They felt that by putting a focus on better products for these areas they would help save lives and protect property from complete devastation.

Aeratis understands the importance of protecting property and saving lives by providing the most flame-resistant product for exterior living spaces. Today, Aeratis Classic is the only Class A fire-rated product offered for exterior living spaces. Class A does not mean that it is fireproof. What this means is, in the case of a fire, Aeratis will stay structurally sound longer, will slow down the spread of flame or will help extinguish the fire to give you and your loved ones the valuable time needed to get clear from harm.

Some areas like rooftops in urban areas make it much harder to get clear of a burning structure. These are projects that require a non-combustible application. Aeratis can be used in conjunction with a fiber cement substrate and a waterproofing underlayment to not only make the structure waterproof but exceed the “non-combustible” requirements for rooftop and multi-family projects.

By using Aeratis Classic to meet the challenges of wildfires, or just day to day living in urban areas, you don’t have to change how you live or the things you enjoy. Whether it is living on the edge of the wilderness or grilling on the roof in Manhattan, Aeratis Classic was engineered to help you improve the quality of your life while assuring that you, your family and neighbors have the most flame-resistant exterior living space offered today.
