    British Gypsum fires up for new product launch

    10th September 2013

    British Gypsum has launched a new high performance acoustic plasterboard. Gyproc SoundBloc F is the latest addition to the Gyproc SoundBloc family and offers all the acoustic properties of its sister products, but with added fire performance.

    Designed to fit into the manufacturer’s GypWall CLASSIC partition system, a single 15mm layer of the Gyproc SoundBloc F to each side provides 60 minutes of fire resistance should a fire break out. This fire performance makes the solution ideal for tackling the legislative and duty of care requirements such as the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order (RRFSO) 2005, which applies to both public and private sector buildings, such as schools, hospital and offices.

    In addition to fire resistance properties, Gyproc SoundBloc F features a high density noise-insulating core that reduces the transmission of sound between rooms, boosting the building’s overall acoustic performance. This multi-functionality means a single board can be used to achieve both fire and acoustic requirements, eliminating the need to use different solutions to meet various project needs, and reducing material and installation costs.

    Alongside its fire and acoustic properties, Gyproc SoundBloc F achieves a ‘Heavy Duty’ rating in accordance with BS 5234: Part 2: 1992 meaning it offers excellent durability for hard-working buildings.

    The Gyproc SoundBloc range also features the original sound insulating Gyproc SoundBloc, moisture-resistant Gyproc SoundBloc MR, as well as Gyproc SoundBloc RAPID and Gyproc SoundBloc RAPID MR, which are designed for easy installation and on-site efficiency.
