Durable Board Systems

Printer-friendly version

In general durable board systems have a high impact resistance and good tolerance to  moisture in semi-exposed situations. The thickness and construction of the board varies the amount of the fire protection so it is important to get the right specification for the application in hand.
Durable board systems such as Promat's VERMICULUX® Encasements, PROMATECT®-250 and  British Gypsum's Glasroc F provide a durable high level of fire protection of up to 4 hours. Factors that can affect the performance of the chosen solution are:

  • type of steel and it's failure temperature
  • size, orientation and shape of the steel
  • steel location
  • competence of the installer


It is therefore important to get the correct solution for the application in question and FireBarrier, with it's extensive experience in the passive fire protection industry can help.
