#33 Fire Rated Wood

Description:  Why are those plywood sheets pink?  The reason is the wood actually is not regular plywood.  The pink is an indicator of the fire treated nature of the wood panel.  Fire treated wood like this is required for many applications by the building code in most areas.  These particular panels will be a backer for carpenters to screw or nail into when they install a wood sheathing finish to the atrium wall currently under construction.
