The use of wood as a structural or cladding material in multi-storey buildings is limited due to its combustibility. Within the last three years two research and development projects were performed to develop high performance fire protection coatings. These coatings should protect wood from ignition over defined periods of time. Furthermore these coatings should fulfil all the requirements of decorative coatings relating to their specific functionality. The paper gives an overview of the performed laboratory work. The formulations were tested under different fire impacts to prove their capability. It is shown by back up tests with sections of large scale constructions, that coating systems were developed that are capable to protect wooden components for nearly 45 minutes against ignition.
