A range of applications, including cash desks, data storage rooms and pharmacy stores.
The excellent mechanical properties of Glasroc F MULTIBOARD, combined with the stiffness and resilience of Gypframe Security Sheet, make GypWall SECURE a formidable barrier to entry. It has a high resistance to ‘determined attack’ using hand tools, and good resistance to attack using power tools.
Ad-hoc tests have been carried out at British Gypsum’s Building Test Centre. A ‘determined attack’ by a team of four using hand tools did not achieve through penetration for approximately 10 minutes.
Where even greater resistance to attack is required, 0.7mm flat galvanised steel sheet (by others) should be fixed to the risk side of the security sheet prior to boarding.
Planning - key factors
Service runs can be accommodated within the profile of the security sheet.
Head and base fixing
Gypframe GA4 Steel Angles are fixed to the structure at 300mm centres. Contact the British Gypsum Drywall Academy for further guidance.
Penetrations of attack resistant constructions for services need careful consideration to ensure that the performance of the element is not downgraded.
Whilst services can be installed, these should be kept to a minimum. The installation of services should be carried out in accordance with BS 7671. Services are accommodated vertically within the profile of the sheeting. Service penetrations, horizontal service runs and socket outlets should always be avoided, where practical, and switch and socket boxes can be surface mounted without affecting the attack resistance of the wall.
Refer to WHITE BOOK section 3.5 – Service installations.
Lightweight fixtures can be made directly into Glasroc F MULTIBOARD. Medium weight fixtures can be made through the lining into the ‘high points’ of the security sheet core.
