Gyproc Protect F is a 15,4 mm thick plasterboard primarily used in interior building applications where normal to high levels of fire resistance is required and for protection to structural steel. It can be used in light weight building systems of 1-3 layers on steel or timber framing where normal structural strength and sound insulation are specified. Gyproc Protect F provides significantly improved fire protection properties compared to a standard gypsum board. It shrinks less during a fire and sustains its basic properties better due to a thicker core reinforced with glass fibres, minerals and other additives for dimensional stability and improved core cohesion at high temperatures. It is available in 900 mm (GFE 15) and 1200 mm width (GF 15) for interior solutions.
