Our internal 16mm and 19mm Tongue and Groove (T&G) flooring and decking holds loadings of 6.1kN or 610 Kg /m2.
In installation treat FireCrunch just like plasterboard, it also comes with recessed edges for plaster setting but is lighter, faster to install and fast power screw fix to steel or timber framing. (See Installation Manuals)
Plaster setters can knife trim and snap 10mm sheets just the same as plasterboard but FireCrunch is up to ten times the impact strength. FireCrunch will not degrade in water or flooding and will dry out over three to four days in warm weather, and then with a clean surface, reseal and repaint. Try doing that with plasterboard!

Only timber tools are required and standard to what builders and tradies would already have, no special diamond tipped cutting tools or drills are required for FireCrunch products. R and U values are high, plus fire and water resistance, sound proofing, and an overall strength are not to be overlooked when understanding the true potential that FireCrunch offers.
Generic plasterboard roughly costs businesses around $35per m2 to install just in labour cost. FireCrunch, however, due to its simple and ‘easy to use’ form factor, plus, requiring only one sheet 10mm per side compared to plasterboard with up to 3 and 4 sheets per side of 13mm and 16mm Fyrchek plasterboards, depending on FRL.
This reduces such labour costs enormously, in most cases by 50% to70% so your tender with FireCrunch will win every time on labour reduction alone versus quoting plasterboard like Fyrchek, etc.
