Fire Resistant

Fire Resistant and Fire Rated Plasterboard

Fire resistant plasterboard, commonly known as fireproof plasterboard, is quite self-explanatory. The boards can be used for both walls and ceilings.

How much does fire rated plasterboard cost?

 These plasterboard benefit greatly from enhanced fireproof qualities that have been added to the board. The British Gypsum Fireline square edge plasterboard consists of an aerated core with glass fibres and other insulant material additives encased in the strong paper liners. This board is best suited for dry lining internal surfaces.

What elements go into fire resistant plasterboard Building Regulations?

The fire resistance performance of plasterboard is based on several building ‘elements’. These elements include walls, floors, ceilings and partitions. Plasterboard in this instance only forms part of these overall constructions. HTM05 and BB100 documents require a minimum period of fire resistance provided by these ‘elements’. Partition fire testing is carried out in accordance with BS476.

How many minutes make up fire resistance in plasterboard?

No matter the ‘element’, the linings in the plasterboard will have metal studs and screw fixings which also make up the whole ‘system’ of fire resistance performance. All components make up the performance (expressed in periods of resistance in minutes – usually from 30-120). Plasterboard cannot be considered fire resistant on its own.
Our fire rated plasterboard sheets come in widths of either 12.5mm or 15mm and are available in tapered edge or square edge styles. The latter thickness is ideal for walls and partitioning where a more robust barricade with fire protection is required.
However, we strongly recommend getting in touch directly prior to ordering square edge boards, due to minimal stock levels around the country, and that square edge is significantly less popular than tapered edge for fire protection projects. Be advised that square edge fire retardant plasterboard will take a few extra days to be delivered.
