A Fire rated drywall is a non-loadbearing passive fire resistant barrier used to inhibit the spread of fire. Shospec supplies and installs 1 & 2 hour fire rated drywalls using Light Steel Frame structures and traditional drywall systems using stud and track steel sections along with fire rated gypsum boards.
- Firerated drywalls are used when a specific area is required to have a firerated wall between itself and another area.
- They retain their structural stability up to their specific firerating.
- They retain heat transfer through the drywall.
- Firerated drywalls can be used in areas where weight is a limiting factor as it is lighter than commercial brick and/or concrete walls.
All our systems are designed, tested and certified by our reputable product suppliers in accordance to SABS testing.
