FCA NEW BUILDLING PRODUCTS
IT CAN SAVE UP TO 70% IN LABOUR AND CONSTRUCTION COSTS WHILE SPEEDING INSTALLATIONS

New improved FCA XClad FireCrunch building products save time, material costs, and labour while being a contributor to health and the environment by reducing Co2 emissions in manufacture. A healthier stronger product and adverse to damage from the severe Australian climatic conditions whilst lowering green house gas emissions by 90% AND INTERIOR / EXTERIOR applications

Plus eliminating the destruction of millions of trees to make paper lined plasterboard.

FCA is not just fire board it protects from Fire, floods, termites, impact and bacteria growth, mould, mildew and it ten times stronger than plaster board.

In fire separation walls where is surface finish produces a top class 4 /5 commercial finish with just a sealer and 2 top coats.

Installation using FCA and Xclad products in fire walls eliminates up to 3 layers of plaster board in general applications to FRL 90/90/90 with single 10mm sheet each side of the frame in single or double stud configuration and an acoustic level of Rw 62 plus ctr.

Fire Wall Penetrations


CSIRO ASSESSED FCA TO FRL 90/90/90 WITH SNAP FIRE SYSTEMS FIRE COLLARS AND PENETRATIONS APPPLICATION USING 1 X10mm FCA SHEET EACH SIDE TO FRL 90/90/90.

Walls, ceilings, floors, roofs, plumbing and electrical.

With a NATA / CSIRO certification AS 1530.4-2005 Fire Protection Level (FRL) of 90/90/90 and over and a competitive price to match, FireCrunch offers construction projects and project managers tendering for such work with a unique benefit of cost reduction in fire separation wall materials. More so in the expensive additional labour installation costs of multiple layers of so called fireproof 13mm and 16mm plasterboard on each side of framing.

Eliminate Hebel and Shaft Liner Fire Wall Systems

FCA reduces a fire wall thickness from up to 320mm to less than 200mm Increasing floor space rental and ROI.

Expensive, heavy, hard to install and brittle 75mm Hebel panels which requires the addition of timber framed panels and delays on wet wall construction plus the added installation of additional paper lined plaster board in 2 or 3 layers of 13 or 16mm Fyrechek add considerably to such costs.

Shaft liner systems requiring expensive hard to handle 25mm Fyrchek and similar plaster board in 3000 x600 sheets requiring further H fixings and U tracks to secure plus aluminium right angles clips top and bottom to secure the board.

The Fyrchek then requires further sealing protection on the ground floor level as they have to be installed before first floor and roof cover is on and frequently results in loss or replacement if rained on and are frequently a trades persons nightmare.

FCA 10mm has none of these issues and is unaffected by rain unlike plaster board.

FCA can Reduce Labour and Material Costs up to 70%

Frequently, fire walls of FRL 60/60/60 and above require multiple layers of plasterboard and more the very expensive labour content of such installation which significantly affects margins. The cost of up to three times the material in transport (billed on weight), three times the site unload, three times the crane up load time, three times the number of sheets to be installed and set, is the reason why there is a fast growing huge shift in fire wall materials specification.

This weak and ineffective fire rated plasterboard material and expensive labour induced installation costs, can drop up to 70% when you choose FireCrunch. By using one layer of 10mm FireCrunch magnesium oxide building board, you can cut your costs significantly. Our FireCrunch XCLAD interior and exterior lining and facades board on each side of a single 90mm or 76mm x 2 double stud fire wall steel or timber frame dependent on the FRL required.

FireCrunch is applicable in all forms of fire rated and non-fire rated construction in wall cladding, flooring, ceilings, roofing, truss liners, fire separation walls, fire rated boundary walls and many more.
