Comply With UK Fire Safety Regulations Using Our Plasterboard

Fire-rated plasterboard must adhere to specific regulations to ensure safety and compliance in building constructions. These materials need to conform to the British Standards (BS) that pertain to fire resistance and reaction to fire, including:

  • BS 476: This series of standards governs fire tests on building materials and structures, specifying how materials should perform to contain fires and prevent fire spread.
  • EN 520: This standard defines the requirements for gypsum plasterboards including classifications for types, sizes, and performance, including fire resistance.
  • Part B of the Building Regulations 2010 (Fire Safety): This regulation requires fire safety provisions in the design and construction of buildings to ensure the safety of occupants. It specifies the minimum periods of fire resistance for different elements of the building, which fire-rated plasterboard can help achieve.

Building Materials Nationwide offer a range of fire-rated plasterboard products that meet these standards. With our expert sourcing and rapid delivery services, we ensure that compliance is straightforward and hassle-free.
