What is the difference between BS and BS EN fire resistance test standards for plasterboard partitions?

BS EN 1363-1 better replicates the way a dry lining system is installed on site. In a BS 476-20 fire test, partitions are generally constructed to no more than 3m in height. The standard allows for maximum partition heights above 3m to be based on a ‘cold-state’, without the need to test at the heights they could be installed at on site.

Can I use the moisture resistant version of a board and still achieve the same performance?

Where moisture resistance is required in a British Gypsum partition, lining or ceiling, the moisture-resistant version of a board, in the same thickness as the original specification, can be used without impacting the system performance.
