Metal framed structural steel encasement system.
GypLyner Encase is a fire protection system capable of providing up to 180 minutes fire resistance to structural steel columns and beams. Installation is quick and easy due to the use of simple clip fixings to secure the framing sections. The system will protect all universal column and beam sections with flange thicknesses between 6mm and 28mm. GypLyner Encase will also protect many joist sections, portal frames, and castellated beam sections. It can be used in any type of building where encasement to structural steel is required.
- Reduced installation time due to the simple, clip-on framing system with GypLyner Encase
- Misalignment of structural steelwork can be accommodated by the versatile framing system to ensure the lining is straight and true
- Improved acoustic performance as a result of the boards being fixed into a framework rather than directly into the steel beam or column
- Damage to GypLyner Encase is more easily identifiable when compared to other fire protection systems such as intumescent paint
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 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.
