Frequently asked question

Is Gyproc FireStrip required

This is used within GypWall metal stud / ShaftWall partitions with deflection heads (when needing to allow for movement within the structure at the head of a partition created by live and dead load on the floor/roof). The Gyproc FireStrip is an essential component in maintaining the fire resistance performance at the top of a partition with a deflection head. Please refer to White Book Chapter 04 Section 02 Page 27 (GypWall CLASSIC) or Chapter 05 Section 02 Page 12 (ShaftWall) for more details.
