Here at FireCrunch, we are your number one choice for fire resistant board materials that are not only environmentally friendly, but can be used for multiple applications. As a proudly Australian owned and operated company, we understand the importance and need for a totally fire proof and fire-resistant board for modern construction that can be used for both residential and commercial properties. We focus our efforts on providing a range of products that will help protect Australian homes and properties from fires and other unforeseen events. We also care about our planet and the environment which is why we are committed to an eco-friendly manufacturing process.

As well as fire proof, FireCrunch is a totally non-combustible building board highly durable and strong with impact resistance. It will last four times longer than standard building boards, where replacement and maintenance is never an issue. Being a fire-resistant board with superior quality, only the finest materials are used in the production process. Our fire-resistant board is made from a composition of magnesium oxide which is a recyclable salt saline mineral. FireCrunch has the qualities of timber but with no combustibility and no flame out. Our fire-resistant board can be easily installed and no special tools are required.

Even though our fire resistant board is more expensive than that of paper liner plasterboard, the significant labour cost reduction of up to 70% is well worth the switch! Multiple layers of plasterboard are required, while only one sheet of our 10mm fire resistant board is needed. With multiple applications, FireCrunch is applicable in all forms of fire rated and non-fire rated construction in areas such as wall cladding, flooring, ceilings, roofing, and more. Choose FireCrunch today and discover the difference!
