The problem of fire safety of wooden structures is considered. The method of protection of wood materials with fire protection varnish is given. Antipyrene and its quantity were selected to ensure Group I fire protection efficiency. The properties of the acrylic binder and the possibility of its use in the formulation of fire protection varnish are considered and analyzed. Complex tests for the time of independent attenuation of the samples of Group I fire retardant efficiency and fire propagation with a brief description of the methods are carried out. Accelerated climatic and full-scale tests of the fire protection varnish samples were carried out and the service life of the coating was determined to be 10 years. Additionally, in order to confirm the declared operating conditions, the fire protection efficiency of “Intol” fire protection varnish samples was tested. Conclusions were made that the selection of the optimal ratio of components and the study of the influence of various factors on the fire retardant efficiency of the wood varnish allow increasing the fire safety of facilities.
