Glasroc F FIRECASE

Glasroc F FIRECASE

Non-combustible glass-reinforced gypsum plasterboard giving up to 120 minutes fire protection.

Glasroc F FIRECASE is a high performance, Class A1 and Class 0, non-combustible glass reinforced gypsum board, used predominately as part of the FireCase frameless structural steel encasement system, giving up to 120 minutes fire protection. Also used in the GypLyner ENCASE system, achieving up to 180 minutes fire protection.

Non-combustible Glasroc F boards, developed using paper-free glass fibre technology, provide the basis for a range of steel encasement and specialist lining systems. These offer quick and simple installation, and measurable performance for maximum protection and safety. The high impact resistance and moisture tolerance properties of Glasroc F make it suitable for installation in semi-exposed areas before the building envelope is complete, saving cost and time on major projects. Glasroc F performance has enhanced moisture resistant performance, now reaching H1 moisture absorption.

How do you fire protect structural steel sections?

We offer the FireCase system or the GypLyner ENCASE system to form an encasement around the beam or column.

How do you protect a steel column within a masonry wall

Our FireCase system using Glasroc F FIRECASE board can be used to fire protect partially exposed steel columns within a masonry wall.

How much space is required to encase steel sections?

With our FireCase frameless encasement system it could be only the Glasroc F FIRECASE board width itself (e.g. minimum 15mm). Our GypLyner ENCASE system requires more space due to the metal framework.

What is the maximum temperature that Thistle plaster can be used at?

For gypsum based products the maximum temperature in normal use is 49oC.
