SECURTEX® 

ATTACK RESISTANT PLASTERBOARD

The first plasterboard-only system certified to LPS 1175 and accredited by Secured by Design. 

Lifetime warranty logo

Siniat Securtex® is an attack-resistant plasterboard to foil opportunistic burglars, keep occupants safe, protect the long-term durability of partitions and achieves the standards to meet Secured by Design and Part Q regulations.  

Securtex® is a dense gypsum plasterboard with an integrated glass fibre mesh which delays burglars breaking through the partition and gaining entry from dwelling to dwelling or from corridors and other common areas.

Peace of mind
Securtex® has been rigorously tested. As a result, we can offer a System Lifetime Warranty for Securtex®, subject to terms and conditions (View Warranty), giving you the peace of mind that your design will continue to meet your performance needs.

FIGURE 1 - Securetex® Board

Securtex board illustration Securtex® plasterboard contains a glass fibre mesh, to bring extra mechanical strength and impact resistance. Combined with a dense gypsum core, it prevents damage by tools typically used by opportunistic burglars, such as screwdrivers or by physical attack, eliminating the need for additional materials such as metal lath or ply in the partition.

When the outer layer of a Securtex® system is struck, the force transfers into the Securtex® layer. The mesh embedded in Securtex® dissipates the force across the whole area of the board, reducing the force of impact and minimising the damage to the partition. View product details.
