Fire resistance of log construction
One frequently asked question is “How do log walls perform in a fire?” Log construction is extremely safe in the event of a fire. Logs char at the rate of 1.0 mm per minute so that the behavior of log construction in the event of a fire is predictable. As the wood surface begins to char, the charring begins to protect the wood from burning.
