Global Fireproof Solutions

Global Fireproof Solutions, Inc. (GFS) specializes in certified, code compliant factory and field applied fire-retardant solutions for all wood products. We’ve leveraged the benefits of our non-pressure application method that provides permanent fire protection for dimensional lumber and plywood, as well as the “hard-to-find” structural wood products such as LVLs, Glulams, LSLs, and OSB, while maintaining their structural design values.

With factories strategically located in three Southern U.S. states…Florida, Georgia, and Texas…our clients have the flexibility to ship us their wood products, in the quantities they need, while taking advantage of lead times that are 3-4 times faster than the industry standard. These factories also serve as home base for our field crews that provide on-site applications of fire-retardants for new and existing structures nationwide.
