Fire resistant frames

What materials have people found for building absorber frames that meets fire resistance standards for commercial buildings?

Obviously wood and wood derivatives are the ubiquitous standard, but rather flamable. The commercial vendors, mostly use metal, which is great if you have the tooling to do metal work. Most of us don't. Buying angle iron might work if you don't mind it heavy, ugly and expensive.

There are good fire resistant options for most of the materials required, but I have found no good substitute for wood frames.

Any good ideas out there?
