Technical purpose
Glasroc F FIRECASE consists of gypsum incorporating a tissue of glass fibre immediately below the surface of the board. The core is reinforced with glass fibre rovings and paper pulp. Glasroc F FIRECASE is a specialist board product and has a square edge on the long edges and has short edges sawn straight. Glasroc F FIRECASE is a high performance glass fibre reinforced gypsum board that is used predominantly as part of the British Gypsum FIRECASE structural steel encasement system, giving up to 120 minutes fire protection. It is also used in the GypLyner ENCASE system, achieving up to 180 minutes fire protection. This specialist board is one of the products within our specialist board range that is certified to BES 6001 achieving a rating of ‘Very Good’. Specialist boards have been developed for demanding applications calling for high levels of combined fire, moisture and impact resistance. The unique properties of this exceptionally fine-surfaced, non-paper faced gypsum board provide solutions for a range of applications, from frameless encasement of steelwork for advanced fire protection, thermal insulation of semi-exposed soffits and the lining of steel-framed walls in industrial buildings, to the creation of aesthetically inspiring curved structures.
