FIREX BOARD ¡V the world's highest fire-rated fireproof board and a revolutionary patented lightweight multi-purpose board that outperforms all other panels in terms of fire-resistance and applications. Not only is FIREX BOARD fireproof, but it is also ideal as a base for tiling in wet areas.
FIREX BOARD is made of incombustible materials and industrial/agricultural waste, using a special technique and unique formulae to offer fire protection and durability. It is odorless, non-toxic and completely free of asbestos and carcinogenic materials such as crystalline silica or quartz, usually contained in fiber-cement board and calcium-silicate board.
FIREX BOARD is non-combustible, heat-insulating, rot-proof, moisture-resistant, corrosion-resistant, impact-resistant, soundproof, termite-repellent and non-deforming. It is strong, durable and nail-holding and no pre-drilling is necessary. It is versatile and easy to use like wood ¡V it can be cut, sawn, drilled, nailed, screwed, stapled, wallpapered, painted and fabricated with veneer, laminate or vinyl covering. Thin sheets can be bent to suit architectural designs. It is so dimensionally-stable that expansion and contraction is negligible. It will not delaminate or deteriorate after prolonged exposure to moisture.
FIREX BOARD is indispensable in all areas where fire safety is essential. Its unique properties make it ideal for partitions, ceilings, interior walls, drywalls, fire doors, A/C or cable ducts, shaft enclosures, raised floor cores, etc.
The FIREX BOARD Suspended Ceiling System is the world's highest fire-rated system using a single layer of 6 mm FIREX BOARD, which achieved a fire rating of 5 hours integrity at 1200 ¢XC in accordance with the BS 476: Part 22: 1987.
The FIREX BOARD Partition System is the only system achieving a fire-rating of 4 hours integrity and 2 hours or 3 hours insulation in accordance with BS 476: Part 22: 1987 using only 1 layer of 6 mm or 12 mm board affixed to each side of a common steel stud frame with an overall thickness of about 3 or 4 inches.
The FIREX BOARD Steel Stud Hoarding System is the thinnest in the market to achieve a fire-rating of 4 hours integrity in accordance with BS 476: Part 22: 1987. Morever, it has twice the impact resistance of hoarding built with calcium silicate boards.
The FIREX BOARD E&M Services Enclosure System achieves a fire-rating of 4 hours integrity and 2 hours insulation in accordance with BS 476: Part 22: 1987 using only a single layer of 6mm board and 63mm insulation - the most cost effective system in the market!
FIREX BOARD can also be used to construct cost-effective fire barriers for a variety of applications, including rolling shutter doorsets, fire-rated steel doors and wood doors.
FIREX BOARD-H (H stands for high performance) is especially designed for applications that require superior fire-rating and high structural strength. It can be used for a variety of applications, including suspended ceilings, ducts, E&M services enclosures and raised floors.
The FIREX WALL Solid Wall System is the most efficient and economical way to build internal walls by using a steel stud frame lined with one layer 6mm FIREX WALL sheet on each side of the frame and filled with a lightweight concrete core mix - the best alternative to labor-intensive masonry or precast wall systems. New high-rise development projects have converted to this new building method because it considerably reduces labor costs and construction time. The lightweight, thinner walls increase floor space while reducing construction costs through minimized structural loading requirements - a double gain!
FIREX WALL offers the best of all worlds - it is 3 times faster to install than masonry, flexibly adaptable to architectural requirements on site, convenient to organize installation of services, easy to give a smooth joint-free appearance and fireproof. That is why FIREX WALL is recognized as the best internal wall system, replacing all those using the heavy, fragile fibre-cement board, which is laborious to install and always splitting when wet sheets are used for infilling the concrete mix.
