Fire safety matters to us, so our team put our Viva and Regions synthetic thatch products to the test. Our products were tested along with two of our top-performing competitors’ products. We wanted to make sure our products are as safe against structure fires as possible.
We could tell you how well our products performed against the competition, but that isn’t the same as actually seeing how well our products perform. So, watch the fire tests now!
Fire Tests: Endureed Vs. Other Class “A” Fire Rated Thatch
Competitor #1’s Fire Test Results
When the flame was shut off, the first competitor’s thatch was still burning. In fact, for another half a minute, this other product continued to burn. Not bad. Right? Some people might be impressed that the fire fizzled out in under a minute, but that kind of fire proofing is not good enough for Endureed.
Competitor #2’s Fire Test Results
When the second fire rated competitor’s product was put to the fire test, even nearby material that wasn’t directly exposed to the flame actually caught fire! Some of the material began to melt and fall. In a real building fire, that would mean a potentially deadly disaster. You can even see how part of the thatch that had melted away was still burning on the grass after it fell. Then it continued to burn. And burn. Terrifyingly, this competitor’s product continued to burn for over three and a half minutes after the fire source had been turned off. Even the piece of the roofing material that had fallen to the ground continued to burn!
Viva By Endureed’s Fire Test Results
When put to the same fire test, no flame remained after just five seconds on our Viva synthetic thatch product. It did not lose integrity and melt off of the rest of the “roof.” The flames didn’t linger.
Regions By Endureed’s Fire Test Results
When our Regions synthetic thatch was fire tested, the material was a replica of very thin thatch. Though our synthetic thatch was even thinner than the first competitor’s synthetic thatch, our product still performed better. After 11 seconds from when the fire source was turned off, the flames were out.
Aren’t the results remarkable?
Independent Burn Test Results
We weren’t surprised when an architect in Maui reached out to Endureed for a sample after multiple samples from our competitors failed to pass their local burn test. We also weren’t surprised to hear back later that Endureed passed. Of all of eight synthetic thatch samples from various manufacturers, only Endureed’s sample passed the local burn test.
