FireCrunch fireproof building materials are also easier and faster to install and fix as it is a lightweight material and is another reason why FireCrunch has now become the most cost-effective fire-resistant building board in Australia. FCA FireCrunch contributes to substantial overall labour cost reductions with up to 70% less fire rated cladding, inbound transport, expensive crane up and site handling.
FireCrunch only requires 1 x 10mm sheet each side of frames compared to multiple layers of plasterboard. The best example is FRL 90/90/90 where up to three layers of fire rated plasterboard can be required each side (6 sheets) compared to two sheets of FireCrunch. FCA IS now tested to FRL 90/90/90 ON TIMBER AND FRL 120/120/120 ON STEEL FRAMES.
