What Is Fire Rated Plasterboard?

Fire-rated plasterboard, popularly known as fireproof plasterboard, is a building material designed to resist or withstand fire. The panels are used for both ceilings and wall applications.

These plasterboards stand out from others thanks to their improved fire-resistance qualities. Our GYPFOR fire plasterboard comes with a tapered edge and aerated core with glass fiber insulation material and other additives sandwiched in strong paper liners. This insulation sheet material is ideal for dry lining internal surfaces.

The plasterboard’s fireproof performance is based on various building ‘elements’ such as wall partitions, ceilings, floors, and walls. Fire-rated plasterboard only forms a small part of the entire construction.

Regardless of the ‘elements,’ plasterboard’s linings will always have screw fixings and metal studs, which are part of the ‘system’ of fireproof performance. It is, therefore, all these elements that make fireproof plasterboard. Plasterboard cannot be called fire-rated plasterboard per se. 

The fire resistance capability is always expressed in minutes, usually from 30 minutes to two hours (120mins). The minutes show the length of time fire plasterboard can withstand fire without breaking down.

Our fire-rated plasterboard are available in different thicknesses, usually ranging from 12.5mm and 15mm with tapered edge. If you need to partition walls that need a stronger barricade with fire protection, fire resistance plasterboard with 15mm thickness would be the best option.
