FireCrunch XCLAD exterior application is an innovative, durable and lighter weight building board for residential and commercial properties TEN TIMES STRONGER THAN PLASTER BOARD . With an environmentally responsible LOW Co2 manufacturing process, we provide our Australia wide clients with sustainable cladding products that have been rigorously fire tested and approved by NATA labs CSIRO.

XCLAD by Firecrunch withstands tested temperatures of up to 1000⁰C and we meet the BAL FZ (Bushfire Attack Level Flame Zone) which makes XCLAD the leading solution for sustainable hard wearing zero maintenance cladding with a bonus of a fire resistant building board for real home protection. Your home will not burn down in a fire storm when clad with roof linings ceilings floors and exterior walls using FCA FireCrunch.

FireCrunch XCLAD is specifically and uniquely designed withstand many severe climatic conditions and reinforces a high concern for safety and protection. Whether it is a residential or commercial property, FireCrunch XCLAD ensures the longevity and durability of your next construction project.

XCLAD building board promotes strength as a high impact resistant product which is quick and easy to install, significantly reducing labour costs up to 70%, versus fire rated plasterboard where only 1 x 10mm sheet is required instead of up to 3 layers of 13mm or 2 layers of 16mm Fyrchek and similar low capability plasterboard products. The ease of use allows for a faster, cost-efficient construction process from small building all the way up to large construction projects.


Our XCLAD exterior lining and facades board in 10mm can be used on each side of a single 90 x 45mm stud frame or wider 64mm x 2 or 76mm x 2 double stud fire wall steel or timber frame, dependant on the FRL required up to FRL 90/90/90 . FireCrunch FCA XCLAD requires only one single 10mm sheet on each side of steel or timber frames compared to multiple layers of plasterboard.


Regular timber tools can be used to install FireCrunch XCLAD and no time consuming pre-drilling is required. FireCrunch provides extensive protection and additional bracing integrity to timber framing when clad with FireCrunch in fire and flood conditions, once pre sealed with recommended products in weather and water sealing.


FireCrunch is of no interest to termites (who cannot live on or near it), therefore it protects expensive timber framing in homes which otherwise can be a very costly and unhealthy experience for home owners.

Bacteria cannot live on FireCrunch FCA (MgoSO4), thereby improving health in wet areas at home and ideal for schools and hospitals, stronger, less damage and promotes hygiene.

XCLAD differs from the outdated and weak plasterboard due to the multi-beneficial aspects of FireCrunch. FireCrunch is designed for safety and cost-effective convenience, adhering to the highest Australian (BCA) standards.
