Gyprock Fyrchek


Among the various safety measures, fire protection stands out as a critical area. This is where Gyprock's fire-rated wall and ceiling systems come into the picture. Designed to enhance the fire resistance of buildings, these systems are essential for both commercial and residential constructions.


What is fire resistant plasterboard?

Fire-resistant plasterboard, often referred to as fire-rated or fireproof plasterboard, is a specialized type of drywall designed to resist the spread of fire. Unlike standard plasterboard, which is made primarily of gypsum sandwiched between layers of paper, fire-resistant plasterboard includes materials that enhance its ability to withstand high temperatures.

What is Gyprock Fyrchek?

Gyprock Fyrchek is a specially formulated plasterboard designed for use in fire and acoustic wall and ceiling systems. Known for its pink face paper, this plasterboard incorporates a fire-resistant gypsum core reinforced with glass fibres and other additives to enhance its fire-retardant properties. It's an ideal choice for areas requiring increased fire protection, such as inter-tenancy walls, shafts, and public spaces in commercial and multi-residential buildings.
