Typical applications include:

  • Fire separation and smoke walls
  • Intertenancy walls and party walls
  • Multi-residential unit ceilings
  • Lift wells
  • Plant rooms
  • Any non-wet area wall or ceiling where a fire or acoustic rated system is specified

Tested Fire Performance

Gyprock 13mm Fyrchek

Gyprock fire rated plasterboard products are manufactured with special additives to enhance their fire resistance properties. The additives slow the progress of heat and flame, and when used as part of a CSR fire rated system, provide performance options suitable for many construction types.

CSR provides a range of wall and ceiling systems, junction and penetration details, which meet and exceed the requirements of the Building Code of Australia. These solutions often include a combination of plasterboard, insulation, sealants and accessories to reach various performance criteria.

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.

Features of CSR Gyprock Fire Rated Systems

  1. Material Composition: Made from gypsum, a naturally fire-resistant material. Gyprock products are engineered to resist high temperatures.

  2. Tested Fire Rated Systems: These systems come with various fire resistance levels, suitable for different building requirements.

  3. Compatibility: They are compatible with a range of building designs, ensuring that safety doesn't compromise aesthetics.

  4. Certification: All CSR Gyprock fire-rated products are certified and comply with the relevant Australian standards for fire safety.


  • Commercial Buildings: In offices and commercial spaces, where the risk of fire can be higher due to electrical equipment and heavy foot traffic.
  • Residential Constructions: Homes can benefit from these systems, especially in kitchens and garages where fire risks are common.
  • Public Facilities: Hospitals, schools, and other public buildings use these systems for enhanced safety.

Installation and Maintenance

While CSR Gyprock systems are designed for easy installation, it's crucial to have them installed by professionals. Proper installation ensures that the fire-rated systems function as intended. Maintenance is relatively straightforward, requiring regular inspections to ensure integrity and performance.
