New Construction System for Partition Walls using Protecta FR Board

When it comes to safeguarding against the spread of fire and smoke while also providing effective sound insulation, Protecta FR Board stands out as the ideal choice. This versatile solution serves as a fast assembly, non-load bearing partition wall system, making it a valuable addition to any construction project with fire safety requirements.

1. Fire Compartmentation Made Easy

Protecta FR Board excels at dividing areas into separate fire compartments, a crucial aspect of fire safety in buildings. Its inherent fire-resistant properties make it a reliable choice to prevent the rapid spread of fire and smoke, enhancing the overall safety of the structure.

2. Acoustic Sound Insulation

In addition to its fire-resistant capabilities, Protecta FR Board also acts as an effective acoustic insulator. This means it not only helps to contain fire but also reduces noise transmission, making it suitable for a variety of applications where sound control is important.

3. Versatile Application

One of the standout features of Protecta FR Board is its versatility in application. It can be used as a standalone partition wall in areas where access is limited, such as lofts and technical rooms. Alternatively, it can be installed inside plasterboard or wood-based particle board walls, augmenting their fire resistance without significantly increasing the wall thickness. This flexibility makes it an attractive option for both new construction and retrofit projects.

4. High-Performance Composition

Protecta FR Board boasts a high-density stone wool core that forms its foundation. This core is then over-coated with Protecta FR Coating, which plays a critical role in enhancing its performance. The top coating reduces the permeability of the stone wool core, preventing the passage of hot gases. As a result, it curbs the temperature rise on the unexposed side of the partition and minimizes heat conduction through the wall.

Protecta FR Board is not just a partition wall; it's a comprehensive solution that prioritises both fire safety and acoustic comfort. Whether you need to compartmentalise spaces to prevent fire spread or want to enhance the fire resistance of existing walls, Protecta FR Board offers a reliable and efficient option for your construction needs.
