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 or 4 layers of 13mm 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 on each side of a single 90mm or wider 64mm x 2 or 76mm x 2 double stud fire wall steel or timber frame dependant on the FRL required. FireCrunch MBE 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 integrity to timber framing when clad with FireCrunch in fire and flood conditions once pre sealed with recc products in weather 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. XCLAD differs from the outdated and weak plasterboard due to the multi-beneficial aspects of FireCrunch.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.
