Gypsum plasterboard with glass fibre and other additives in the core backed with a vapour control layer. Gyproc FireLine duplex consists of an aerated gypsum core with glass fibre and other additives encased in, and firmly bonded to, strong paper liners and backed with a metalised polymer of polyethylene film. Gyproc FireLine duplex is a plasterboard that is suitable for drylining internal surfaces. This plasterboard is one of the products within our plasterboard range that is certified to BES 6001 achieving a rating of ‘Excellent’.

Fire protection

Plasterboard linings provide good fire protection owing to the unique behaviour of the non-combustible gypsum core when subjected to high temperatures. The inclusion of glass fibre and other additives in the core of Gyproc FireLine duplex improves its fire protective properties when compared with standard plasterboard. For the purposes of the national Building Regulations, plasterboard is designated a ‘material of limited combustibility’ (Approved Document B). The surfaces of Gyproc FireLine duplex are designated Class 0 (for the purposes of national Building Regulations).
