ECO Friendly Firecrunch

Our substitute fireproof plasterboard range is eco-friendly and carbon neutral building board. FCA strives to sustain the environment by reducing carbon dioxide Co2 output in our manufacturing.

When producing our products, we use minimal wood chip 3% and do not destroy millions of oxygen producing trees each year as do manufacturers of paper lined plaster board like James Hardy, CSR Boral and Knauf to name few, in fact not only do they pollute at 95% more Co2 than FCA MgO products but they then have double whammy effect by destroying millions for trees that absorb Co2 , it is matter that Government will have to address eventually.

As an environmentally conscious company, we ensure we do not negatively affect the environment. We have the added benefit our products being completely free of harmful chemicals and toxins. As a result, we have become the number one choice for fire resistant building boards. Choose FireCrunch today and discover the difference for yourself.
