Fire resistant plasterboard

Go to:


Fire is a very common, unpredictable disaster.  There are strict Building Regulations in place, designed to prevent the spread of fire, giving occupants time to escape. Depending on the size, height, location and type of property, walls and ceilings need to provide 30, 60, 90 or 120 minute fire protection. 

Meeting Fire Regulations with the right plasterboard

GTEC Fire Board

Our fire boards are identified by their distinctive pink colour. The most popular is GTEC Fire Board which has fire resistant additives to increase the fire protection characteristics of the board.

These properties enables it to meet more stringent fire performance requirements. These typically includes domestic separating walls, rooms above garages and stairwells in multi-storey properties. In commercial buildings, it is typically used to protect shafts and voids.

Homeowner and physiotherapist, Somerset

“I’m renovating a single storey barn into a new home and home physiotherapy business. 

An integrated garage separates the two and as it contains flammable material, I had to upgrade the fire protection on the walls and ceilings to 60 minutes. 

I called the Siniat Technical Services team and they advised I could do this with two 15mm layers of Siniat Fire Board. I’m now fully compliant with Building Regulations.”
